  • Oh my goodness!!! I love your dialect, Spanish must've been a piece of cake for you!! My Lola's Chovacana and I also have a friend who could speak that...I wish I could too!!

    Well anyway....uhhh.....hasta luego (?) :laugh:

  • Bueno pa tu sabe tu conversa y hondo chavacano.

    Claro gad de ADEZ tu... porcasa na nick di ustedes.
  • ArcherBlaze- Que tal tu? De ADZU tambien tu :D? tu locacion a hora na Zamboanga ba? O hala bueno el situacion alli! Sabe tu bien alegre yo porque tiene ya tam bien yo un companero aqui na PEX que sabe conversa chavacano....Weeeeeee.......Sige ya si tiene pa tu alli uban que sabe tam bien conversa chavacano...cumbida ya canila aqui na PEX para man junto-junto quita y anuncia kay el di atun lenguahe bien "VIVO PA".

    Triglyceride- Muchas gracias amigo!!! Not true at all my friend...it's not that simple 'cause unlike spanish, chavacano is not that rigid in grammatical structure and doesn't care much about noun and verb agreement in numbers. In terms of Verb, chavacano has no conjugated verbs. The nouns as well as pronouns are not that particular with gender-the feminine and masculine form like "Las hermanas y Los hermanos". In chavacano we can say it "el hermana y el hermano". Therefore, we do struggle in these areas in studying Spanish. What comes handy are the Chavacano words 'cause about 75 to 85% of them are of spanish origin. In Zamboanga, chavacano exists in many forms. One would be very much close to castellano...the one spoken by Mayor Ma. Clara Lobregat due to a direct root or lineage of spanish ancestry. It is much polite due to the usage "tu" to address the second person. Like "Quosa 'tu' nombre"-what is your name. The second form is melted with Visayan words and accent and spoken by Visayans who migrated in. It is characterize by impoliteness due to the usage of "VOS" instead of "TU". The pronunciations are...you know what I mean (e.g. I to e).....Thirdly are what we call " de Alla-alla" in tagalog: taga doon. They talk with singing intonation and they don't usually pronounce the letter 'S'. Like posporo, they pronounce it as 'POH-pro. The structure is much similar to that of the first form. Last form would be the flat; its mixture is indescribable and I think this is what the new gen is very identifiable with. No intonation and influenced by English, Filipino, visaya, chinese, tausug, waray and more. God, I just really don’t where it’s heading to! Thanks guys for the post. Bye for now

  • muchas gracias amigos...i just like to hear chavacano...coz i have a friend who could speak this lovely dialect of yours...i'm a kapampangan but may i still participate here?...kahit nagbabasa lang...gusto ko pong matuto...

    I'll add a slash(/) as a guide for you on how to read and understand the Chavacano Language better. :)

    Hola!!! / Como esta?
    -> (hello... how are you?)

    note: hola or hello may be used as a greeting. The word Como esta means "how are you". You may also say Quetal(ke-tal), it literary means "how are you" or "how are you doing"

    Semehante / el lenguahe Chavacano / y lenguahe Mexicano
    -> (The Chavacano language is similar to Mexican)

    note: Semehante means "similar/the same/equal" The word "el" is "The" in chavacano... let's say you wanna say THE BOY... you would say it in chavacano as "el hombre" Another thing, the y(iy)... it is like "and" in english.. example... you wanna say "the boy and the girl"... you may say it as "el hombre y mujer"

    Mas Semehante / el lenguahe Chavacano / na lenguahe Mexicano / contra con el lenguahe Spa?ol.
    -> (The Chavancano language is more similar to mexican compared to Spanish)

    note: If you'd noticed that the word "mas" is added with semehante... which means "more similar" while the word "contra con" is fairly used to compare something. Example... "Mark is better than Tom" you'd say it as "Mas bueno si Mark contra con Tom"

    Yo / alegre sabe / cay / interesado tu sabe / pa qui modo conversa / un lenguahe unico.
    -> (I'm glad to know that you've been interested about to learn how to speak a unique language)

    note: "Yo" means me. "alegre sabe" means "happy to know". "cay" literary means "because". "interesado tu sabe" means "you are interested to know/learn". "pa qui modo" plainly means "how"...

    take note that "yo/con migo" is the first person.. while "tu/con tigo" is the second person and "sila/canila" is referred to as the third person. "canatun" means "us"

    note: "dale" means "give"
    I will give you a gift
    - dale yo / con tigo / un regalo

    I will give them a gift
    - dale yo / canila / un regalo

    You will give me a gift
    - dale tu / con migo / un regalo

    They will give me a gift
    - dale sila / con migo / un regalo

    They will give you a gift
    - dale sila / con tigo / un regalo

    They will give us a gift
    - dale sila / canatun / un regalo

    I hope that you will be more familiar about the Chavacano language...

    Hasta aqui anay... (til here...)
