Austronesiska språk har tendensen att ha olika former av artighet - en låg form för folkmässig användning, en artig form och en mycket hög eller ibland regal form.

Fun facts about Ilocano

Locals know this language as Samtoy, from 'sao mi ditoy' or 'our language here'.

Modern Ilokano speakers tend to use their traditional numbers to count from 1 to 9, and Spanish numerals for higher numbers.

The name Ilocano is derived from 'i-' meaning 'from', 'looc' or 'bay' and the Spanish ending '-ano'.
