Talasalitaang Pilipino: Filipino Vocabulary

Susulat ako dito ng mga salitang o katagang katangi-tanging Pilipino at ang kanilang kahulugan sa ingles. Ikakatuwa ko rin kung kayo ay sumali dito. Pakatandaan lamang: mga katangi-tanging salitang Pilipino, ngunit bihira nating maririnig sa pang-araw-araw nating pakikipag-usap. O baka'y hindi pa naririnig ng karamihang Pilipino. Kahit sino maaaring sumali. Maari kayong sumulat ng sunod-sunod. Uumpisahan ko:

I will post particular Filipino words or phrases here and their English translation. I will be happy if you join me. Just remember: words or phrases that are particulary Filipino but rarely used in our daily conversations. Or maybe even not heard by many Filipinos. Anyone can participate. You can post as many times without waiting for the next person to post. I'll start:

dalubsakahan - agriculture

likas na sangkap - natural materials

sangkap na likhantao - artificial materials

lawigin - clear up the forest lands

palahalmanan - horticulture

aligtanim - plant variety

tawid-sabinhi - cross-breeding

Alam ko, alam ko...grabe! May mga salita palang ganito

I know, I know...wow! So we really have these words, huh!
