"Never forget the roots of your family"

A little serious of our mind:

 Try to imagine, that your grandchildren can´t speak with you in your language......

Learn your family the language of the roots, so your family - children can speak their language from childhood!

Learn your family the culture of the roots, so your family understand and respect the roots e.g. Mano Po!

"Father of the National Language" - Manuel Luis Quezón y Molina

(August 19, 1878 – August 1, 1944) served as president of the Commonwealth of the Philippines from 1935 to 1944. He was the first Filipino to head a government of the Philippines (as opposed to other historical states). Quezón is considered by most Filipinos to have been the second president of the Philippines, after Emilio Aguinaldo (1897–1901).

Quezón was the first Senate president elected to the presidency, the first president elected through a national election, and the first incumbent to secure re-election (for a partial second term, later extended, due to amendments to the 1935 Constitution). He is known as the "Father of the National Language".

A Brief History of the Filipino Language by/pinoydirectory

The rise of Taglish, a new Filipino language based on combining Tagalog and English words, is impacting the Filipino society. Because it is neither English or Tagalog, it makes formal communication difficult. The purpose of this video series is to contribute toward strengthening the teaching of the formal and decent contemporary Tagalog language by presenting it in the context of respected Filipino custom and tradition.

Moves to save dying languages

Philippines moves to save dying languages. The Philippines has started a new programme to try to save its dying languages. The archipelago is home to more than 170 dialects, but some of them have only a few speakers left and there's concern many of the indigenous languages could be lost forever. Al Jazeera's Jamela Alindogan reports on what's being done to keep them alive.

Remark 2 sub-albums in the main-album

Ermitaño Ermitaño

was a unique and now extinct creole spoken by a specific group of people living in the Ermita district of Manila. The language was derived from the combination of Tagalog and Spanish which mirrors the development of the Chavacano language, itself a combination of Visayan languages and Spanish.

These languages are, however, mutually unintelligible, meaning a Chavacano meeting an Ermitaño with each speaking their native tongue will not understand each other.

In the late '80s and early '90s there were only two living native speakers of Ermitaño left in Manila: a grandmother and her teenage grandson. Linguistics students from the University of the Philippines have had the chance to interview and make notes of the dying language.

Fans are called "paypay", "pamaypay", "abaniko (abanico)" in the Philippines.

The abaniko, together with the baro't saya, was once a part of a lady's attire. Read about the various ways of using and holding the abaniko may convey different meanings.

--------

Si la mujer escondía los ojos detrás del abanico, estaba diciendo a su interlocutor que lo quería.

If the woman hid her eyes behind the fan, she was saying to her would-be suitor that she loved him.

Si colocaba el abanico sobre la mejilla izquierda, la respuesta era: No; y si lo posaba sobre la derecha, la respuesta era: Sí.

If she placed the fan on her left cheek, the answer was: No; and if she placed it on the right cheek the answer was: Yes.

Si la mujer se abanicaba con rapidez, significaba que estaba comprometida; y si lo hacía lentamente, le transmitía que estaba casada.

If the woman fanned herself quickly it meant that she was engaged; and if she fanned herself languidly, she indicated that she was married.

Baybayin aka Alibata is a pre-Filipino writing system from the islands called the "Philippines". Baybayin comes from the word "baybay", which literally means "spell". Alibata was a term mistakenly coined by Paul Versoza in the early 1900's when he wrongly thought the script was rooted in Arabic.

Remark 2 videos in the album

The Kristiyano-Islam Peace Library, or KRIS

The only way to save Chavacano, Zamboanga City's pidgin Spanish language, is to teach and encourage young Zambuenos to speak it up with pride. Much as we admire the rise of many Chavacano-speaking page/groups in FB, we are alarmed seeing few young people joining in. As it is, Chavacano is in danger of dying with the older generation. At the Kristiyano-Islam (Kris) Peace Library, we encourage all Kris scholars and library users to speak pure Chavacano.

The Kristiyano-Islam Peace Library, or KRIS is an award-winning, non-profit, non-government organization based in Manila devoted to making education more accessible to Filipino youth living in poor and conflicted communities. Through its libraries, scholarship programs, and learning projects, it has been giving aid to hundreds of students from Zamboanga City, Zamboanga Sibugay, Davao City, Rizal, and Metro Manila since 2001.

The rise of Taglish, a new Filipino language based on combining Tagalog and English words, is impacting the Filipino society. Because it is neither English or Tagalog, it makes formal communication difficult. The purpose of this video series is to contribute toward strengthening the teaching of the formal and decent contemporary Tagalog language by presenting it in the context of respected Filipino custom and tradition.
