Findings 4: There are words in Filipino with slight stress in the second to the last syllable while the same words in Cuyonon are not stressed.

a:gaw ‘agaw take by force
balu’tan balutan package
ba:ta’ bata’ child

Another word I know aside from balutan is the word potosan from the root word potos which also means package. Most of the natives, as far as i know use potos instead of balot.
