Hi I’m back hehe^^… Again I need your help about tausug words hehe, what does “amunasa” and “hundung” mean?
Also what is “hijab” and “tirung”?
Thanks a lot^^
Hello again 🙂
Have you checked my posts on www.tausug101.blogspot.com? I have been updating the blog by posting new words every fridays, hope you have checked them 🙂
Anyway, “amuna sa” is a common term that may roughly mean “yeah, that’s it!”, it is used to express affirmation or confirmation or agreement with the speaker.
Example Rashid said: “Mapasu’ isab in bilik ini!” (This room seem hot!)
And you can reply: “Amuna sa” (yeah, you are right/that’s it)
“Hundung” means “stop”. Itbcan both be used as verb or a command, as in “hundung kaw!” (You stop!)
“Hijab” is an Arabic term (you already know that Arabic sometimes get mixed with our langguage), it means “a covering”. Basically it’s the VEIL that you see Muslim women wear in accordance to the command of God in the Quran to cover their parts, except the face and hands. Try searching in google.image and type in HIJAB.
“Tirung” or “Turung” is the Tausug word for Hijab.
