Let's share new words or terms we learned today
« on: June 18, 2008, 08:37:14 AM »
Dugay kuno ta mutiguwang kung active atong utok. Let's learn a new word everyday and share it.

I'm taking a break from a pile of Japanese medical forms I was asked to translate. Everything went on smoothly until I stumbled upon a page with the title heading Hiyari Hatto Report.

At first I thought this was the name of the person who filed the report, or the subject of the report itself, and even ventured to transpose the Japanese text to familiar-sounding  Hillary Hut. But the text simply didn't add up. So I googled the word in both Japanese and English.

It turns out this is a technical term for "near-miss", "close-call accident", "small incident", "high-risk situation." Kana bang gamay na lang nga sayop sa panghitabo pwede na naay dakong disaster and even fatality that could have occurred at work, while driving, or in the conduct of daily routine. Naa bitaw ta'y ma-encounter ani nga sitwasyon adlaw-adlaw.

The term is derived from the Japanese words hiyari (chilling) and hatto (alarming) and has been adopted into the English language verbatim. Subsequently, I found this word used by American companies in their industrial reports, by the World Health Organization in hospital malpratice studies, etc.

Kamo na pud, bisag Bisaya, Tagalog o sinultian ninyo dihas injong lugar... Ang way ikasumpay slow-learner  ;)...

Ngek!  Slow learner ko kay wa pa koy ikasumpay!   ;D

Well, can I just use the word Hiyari Hatto to see if I really understand your explanation, Bene san?

I went to have lunch with a friend today.  While she was driving, her phone was ringing and she just grabbed the phone to answer and we were at the intersection where there was construction going on in the road.  I told her to watch out as we almost hit the side of the guard railing.  It was really a hiyari hatto!  :D

Graz,

Mangutana sa ko Ma'am. Kana bang word nga "hasol" sa Binisaya gikan na sa word nga "hassle" sa English? Kung matubag nimo, I'll find the answer to the question that long perplexed me.

sa man ni Sir, I thought ikaw among professor ani! hahahaha

I think so, Bene san!  Hasol is hassle.  That is got to be the same.

Oh, my favorite word is boondocks for bundok as in taga buk-id. That's really ours!  I didn't know this until I told my husband jokingly that he is from bundok.  To my surprise, he understood!  No wonder he understood because that's now English! :D

Wikipedia: 

The boondocks is a remote, usually brushy rural area[1]; or a term for a remote city or town that is considered unsophisticated[2].

The expression was introduced to English by American military personnel serving in the Philippines during the early years of the 20th century. It derives from the Tagalog word "bundok", meaning "mountain".

Daghan salamat, Ma'am.

Akong Binisaya man gud, CDO naku nakat-unan. I stayed in Jagna, Bohol until I was 6, so my Binol-anon is really rusty. Naa kay mga Visayan words usahay nga dili naku familiar. I'll just ask you as the occasion arises, kay pareho man ka familiar sa Binisaya sa Bohol ug CDO.

Kani hinuon "boondocks" taud-taod na naku ni nahibaw-an. Pero sila may naghuwam ani nato, di ba? Sa "hasul" kita may nanghuwam nila.

Bene san, "kapayason" in CDO is not the same as the "kapayason" in Bohol kay ang sa CDO kay hambog man while sa Bohol kay hilakon.  I think mas closer ang meaning na hilakon kay di ba kon samaran ang kapayas, dali dayon mo gawas iyang juice.

Yes, yes, I remember the confusion I elicited from my Boholano cousins before when I used this word "kapayason."

Gagamit ba ug "nindot" and taga-CDO? Di ba "tsada" o di kaha "gwapo"?

Asang dapita sa Bohol gagamit ug "naitok" para sa "nasuko"? Murag na-confuse ko ani first time naku nadungog sa akong cousin nga taga-Sierra Bullones.

Chada or pachada man ang gamit didto sa CDO. 

Sa amo sa Manga kay kasagaran "naitok" pero gagamit pod ug "nasuko".   "Maitok ba diay ka ay!" - "ay", being the favorite ending word sa amoa with matching singsong tone almost like that of the Ilonggos.

Ang kana jud taga Cebu kay di jud ko ganahan ingnon ko'g "nag daot" meaning "na niwang"!  Kay sa Bohol, "daot" means nag sakit!

Na-confuse pud ko aning "daot" sa mga Cebuano kay sa CDO we don't use it. The malumanay nga "daot" means not functioning or guba.

Ang gikutasan sa cebu is like nautas,while sa Bohol is gigutom. (mao ba?)

Bangag is buslot in Cebu while in Bohol it means bunal.

Sample; bangagan means  buslutan (Cebu
           bangagan means  bunalan (Bohol)
Ma confuse jod ko ani.
