    My wife has taught me a few words in our short time here. I have no idea which of them are Tagalog and which Visayan, which are slang and which not, nor which are OK to publish here uncensored. The spellings may be incorrect:

    Tae
    Oten
    Utog
    Lechon
    Bilat
    Bastus
    Tubig
    Liket
    Powit
    Diddi
    Manuk
    Titti
    Tolit
    Etlog

    These seem to get us through most situations, but I'd like to learn some more.

    "Sh8t" is the past tense of "sh!t".
    used in a sentence.

    After reading your Bisaya, my asawang was shocked you are English as the Bisayan standard of "Coke walang ice" is so very high (even though two thirds of it is English) and concluded you are OVER-qualified for the job. Pasay-lo-a. :smile:
