Tagalog (Filipino native language)

 

Being the language lovers that we are... A place to talk about, or write in languages other than Spanish and English.

not the same. Although you could be understood if you use spanish. One, two, three, four, is isa, dalawa , tatlo, apat, uno, dos tres, kwatro , may be used also but in formal tagalog, most spanish words are intentionally avoided if posible. In some instances where spanish may be used instead of the native tagalog for brevity. for examplw the number, 1500 in tagalog is "isang libo at limang daan" this is too long, one may instead use "mil kinyentos" ( mil quinientos) .

Spanish has influenced tagalog not only by adding Spanish words to the Tagalog vocabulary but also in Tagalog grammar. The comparative form of adjectives and adverbs are employed bu using the Spanish "mas" before the adjective or adverb.

Example:

1. Gwapo si Pedro. - Pedro is handsome.
2. Pero mas gwapo is Luigi sa kanya. - But Luigi is more handsome than him.
Mas gwapo raw si Jose kay Luigi. - They say Jose is more handsome than Luigi.
3. Pero si Luigi pa rin ang pinakagwapo, sabi ng nanay niya. - But Luigi is still the most handsome, according to his mom.

*Note that the prefix "pinaka-" was added to the adjective to make it in the superlative degree.
