Pulong Bisaya / confused about Visayan tenses!
« on: August 14, 2012, 07:29:45 AM »
Maayong buntag sa tanan,
I am trying to learn Visayan and I have a question about negation of past and future events.
Can somebody help me understand the meaning and time-frame of these sentences?
Wala siya niadto.
Wala siya muadto.
Dili siya niadto.
Dili siya muadto.

I thought that wala negates a past action but I have come across examples where wala negates verbs beginning with mu-.
I'm confused!

General Topic / The life of Brenda Abregana?
« on: August 30, 2010, 09:25:36 AM »
Can anyone in Bohol give me any details about the life of Brenda Abregana who used to be the curator of the Bohol Provincial Museum in the house of Carlos P Garcia?

I'm after any specific details that might help my historical overview. When was she born? When did she die? Did she ever work at the provincial library? If so, when? Did she suffer from any illness? Did she have children?

I am aware that some of her writings can be found with a google search. Please don't send me those - I was the one who put them on the internet!

What I'm looking for are your personal reminisces from her life - or anything you might have heard from those who knew her.

Thank you so much!

Bojolano Jejemons! I am busy writing up a linguistic description of Bohol. Right now I am up to the bit where I describe the various secret or quirky Filipino ways of writing or speaking that are also used in Bohol. Can somebody help me out with Jejemon/Jejenese? I need some examples to use in my article.

Please answer the following question for me in your own words using the Jejemon or Jejenese writing system but include an explanation in English please!:

Bohol Tourism | Bohol Travel & Tour / Puzzle: What is this a photo of?

Can anyone help decipher the text on this banner? It comes from a small barrio of Guindulman.
  • note the symbol of the anchor and cross above a heart
  • a similar flag in the same barrio contains the text 'M.A.S.B.' and 'Pagtoo, Paglaum ug Paghigugma'

Anyone who can successfully work it out will get a free digital pdf of Lonely Planet Visayas.

Philippine Business News / Bohollywood: new movie to be set in Bohol?

Did anyone see this article in the Manila Standard?

Maybe Cesar Montano will make a film about Dagohoy or the Eskaya. I hope so!

Hi there,
For those who don't know me already, I'm an Australian linguistic researcher studying the Eskayan language of Bohol.
This post is to announce that I have started a facebook group called Eskaya Cultural Heritage.
You have to sign up (free) to facebook in order to see it but anyone who is interested in this aspect of Boholano culture is welcome to join.

 There's only a few photos and family trees at the moment but in time I will add more.

Just go to facebook and type 'Eskaya' into the search bar to find it. Then click 'join this group'.

Hi my name is Perez and I am an Australian researcher who lived in Bohol last 2005-2006. 
I am soon going to visit Bohol and the rest of the Visayas in order to update the Visayas section of the Lonely Planet guide. If you or any of your readers have any "must sees" for the Visayas please let me know. You can add suggestions to the comments section of this post here. Look forward to hearing from you!
