I just wish non Bisayans and non Cebuanos stay out of this thread if you just want to offend our sensibilities..

We Bisayans are having a great time discussing our various tongues but some people would just want to spoil it.

I would also like to appeal to some Bisayans not to use Tagalog terms in order not to provoke other people here.

My mom used to be called by my Waray father "kid". Now he calls her "Nanay!" I'm surprised since we don't call my mother "nanay" but "mommie" or "mama". My father can even speak deeper Tagalog than us.

It's not being serious but what you said wasn't funny. Like for example, some Cebuanos refer to their young sons Titing, a derivative of Titi, a title for an older male person, is there something funny with that?

To you, a Tagal, it would sound like a small **** but to us, it is an endearment. Haven't you heard of the diversity of Philippine languages?

I have an uncle named Titing.

May I ask, I read here some people call Tagalogs -- Tagawog or Tagawg. Or say tinagawog. Is this customary?

Oh here it is:

I suggest since this thread is about Cebuano, we also use it here so that we can get our message clear. Ug para magkasinabtanay ta.

Anyway, Im based in Cebu but a few times I go to Manila. Whenever I am in the imperial capital, I would always endeavor to speak English with educated Tagawgs, not to impress them but because I find it easier to speak English than Tagalog. Because of this, some miseducated Tagalog called me "pasosyal." They just hate it. Di man ko pasosyal pero maglisud gyud ko'g Tinagawg. Hehehe...

Ako ra kaha'y ing-ani, or do other educated Cebuanos do the same? Unsa'y inyong ikasulti bahin ini?

It's not something offensive. That is how our forefathers called the Tagalogs or Tinagawg for the language.

It's not like referring to Cebuanos as Bisaya. For some, the latter means an ignorant probinsyano, particularly a househelp, which not all Bisayans are.

There should be a distinction. Cebuanos are Bisayans but not all Bisayans are Cebuanos. The Visayas has different linguistic groups like Cebuano, Ilonggo, Waray, etc, etc..

Miss Lili, did I answer your question?
