Fun facts about Cebuano

During the 19th and early 20th century in the Philippines, there were more speakers of Cebuano than Tagalog, but Tagalog, spoken in the regions around the capital city, was chosen as the official language.

It is important to put the stress in the right place in Cebuano. Dápit means 'place', while dapit means 'to invite'.

English words borrowed into Cebuano are spelled according to native pronunciation: brislit (bracelet), drayiber (driver) and hayiskul (high school) are common ones.
