So here are the basics of the Filipino Language that I'm making for the Language-Exchange group

Today's topic is pronunciation

To begin I must tell you that the spelling of a Filipino word is the same pronunciation
For Example:

Mataas(high)= ma-ta-as
Hayop(animal)=ha-yop

but on some words,depending on how fast you say it,will mean different things
For Example:

Takot(pronounced quickly) means scared

in a sentence:
Takot ako meaning "I'm scared" in english

and Takot(where it's "ta" is pronounced longer) means scary things

in a sentence:
Maraming takot sa buhay meaning "There are a lot of scary things in life"

and then theres "ng",the word which most people don't know how to pronounce

"ng" is pronounced nang but "nang" is a different word and there pronounced the same
"ng" is used when the next word is a noun and "nang" is used when the next word is a verb

in a sentence: (got them from google cause I'm lazy)
Gumamit ng suklay si Nena dahil hindi maayos ang kanyang buhok meaning "Nena used the comb because her hair is messy"
Si Leo ay lumalakad nang mabilis meaning "Leo is walking fast"

There is also "syon" which is basically the Filipino version of tion or sion but since it has the same pronounciation we'll move on

Fun Fact: there is a Filipino one word tongue twister and it is"nakakapagbabagabag" which means bothersome or worrysome in english

so this is the end of the basics of pronunciation,if you have any questions, comment below!
dunno what category should I put it in
