It means "move" as in "move closer"  ;)

Or, "be near."

The root word is "irog" which means move. "Irog-irog" mean move a bit.

"Irog-irog ngari" (as in the Visayan song) means move a bit closer.

Salamat kaayo, Dot and Fr. Roel.

Pariho ra diay ning 'irog irog' sa 'isrog isrog' ?

When i was in Valencia, it was common to hear women in the market place telling their children, "Doy, isrog ba..."

Koddi,

I have never heard of the term 'isdog' before. Pariho ra pood na sa 'isrog'?

Thanks Ray, this is great. Out of these synonyms, ive heard of sibog; the former (irog) was just a recent one--made known to me by Max Surban's Song, "Pasayawa ko day". lol.

There is still so much for me to learn. Thanks!
