i

Hiligaynon

The letter "i" is pronounced in Visayan as in Spanish, except when it has an abrupt sound as in the words:-dalî, dalîdálì, tahî, hibî, etc. To avoid an hiatus "i" slurs into a following vowel as if a "y" had been inserted, and in fact "y" is often inserted in modern spelling, e.g. hiás, hiyás, tián, tiyán; íos, íyos, etc. However a distinct hiatus occurs when an abrupt "i" is followed by a vowel, e.g. daliá, dali-á, not dalyá; tahión, tahi-ón, not tahiyón; ginharían, ginharí-an, not ginharíyan, etc. (From dalî, tahî, hárì, etc.).
