Constrcutive Analysis of True and False Cognates in Filipino and Cuyonon Part 6

Porabil ko ipadayon ang research paper ni Florida Dangan nga ing bel ko sa –10th International Conference on Austronesian Linguistics, dagi ang mga links sa Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part4, Part 5.

Ig dagi ang Findings 6 : Filipino has separate phoneme o and u. While in Cuyonon it is only the phoneme u. There are words spelled o but the o is pronounced as u.

Example:

FILIPINO CUYONON MEANING
abot /’abot/ abot /abut/ reach, attain
ampon /’ampon/ ampon /ampun/ adopted
bangko /bangko’ bangko /bangku’/ bench, bank
kuko /kukoh/ koko /kuku’/ finger, toe nails
