  4. Hello Chai.

    Walang “malasan ko ikaw” baka ang tinutukoy niyo ay “Kalasahan ta kaw” which means: “Mahal kita”.

    Katan = lahat
    Maingat (mingat) = may alam
    ikaw = ikaw
    kaingatan = alam
    katan kaingatan = lahat alam

  9. Hindi po kami gumagamit ng “Good morning” sa Bahasa Sug as a form of greeting. Mostly ginagamit namin ay “Assalamu Alaykum” (Peace be with you) na Arabic. pero kung ita-translate natin literally, Good morning ay “Marayaw Mahinaat”

    Interestingly similar nga talaga sa Butuanon at Surigaonon ang Bahasa Sug ^_^

  13. Assalamu'alaykum!

    i hope u can enlighten me on this matter…my dad is tausug, my mom is caray-a and i grew up in manila thats y i dnt speak tausug and i have this “trying-hard accent”. what should my ethnicity be then? we're now living in zc and most people assume im tausug bcos i wear hijab (& therefore speak fluently), however im confused if i should consider myself one (especially when im asked to introduce myself/fill out forms) bcos i dnt speak that much :(. it's somehow frustrating.

    PS
    u already know this, but ur blog is really helpful! im so glad i found ur blog. hopefully, i wiil be able to speak fluently in the near future and help other ppl as well. Magsukul tuud! may Allah subhana hu wa taala reward u and ur foundation more 🙂
