Meaning of o

o

Hiligaynon

The Visayans have a vowel that sounds sometimes like the Spanish "o", sometimes like the Spanish "u", but in most cases it is not satisfactorily represented by either "o" or "u". Consequently in many words the two vowels are interchangeable-"sunúd, sunód, sonód, sonúd".

In this Dictionary if a word is not found under "o", it may be found under "u", and vice versa.

When "o" or "u" is printed in italics it must be pronounced with an abrupt sound that can be learned only by hearing, e.g. labô-to slash, smite.



ó

Hiligaynon

(Sp. ó) Or. Táo inâ dirâ ó sápat? (Táo inâ dirâ ukón sápat)? Is that over there a man or a beast? (see kon, okón, ukón).
