Here's some more homework for you. :)

EVERYDAY GREETINGS

Tagalog speakers in the Philippines have many ways of greeting other people. It is common also to hear them say "Hi" or "Hello" as a form of greeting, especially among close friends. There are no Tagalog translations for these English greetings because they are basically borrowed terms, and any English-speaking person will be readily understood by Filipinos in general (Yes, Virginia and Joe, English is widely spoken in the Philippines, a former colony of the US of A for nearly 50 years!). Below are a few Tagalog greetings that are importart to learn if one wants to endear himself/herself to Filipinos.

Sayanara!

It may be Japanese but the band's root would extrapolate to "Vapourise"

Kumusta ka everyone.  Since my Tagalog is seriously lacking, I thought I'd start a thread in here to get some help.  Feel free to contribute either a word or two or short phrases (please include the English translation too) that might be useful for me to know, and I'll do my best to learn them.

Maraming salamat po.    :)

Ok Alon, here are some of not-so-complicated ones (Sige Alon, nandito ang ilan na hindi masyadong mahirap o komplikado)

The Negator HINDI

HINDI is generally used to negate nominal (NOM), adjectival (ADJ), and verbal (VBL) sentences. This is done by placing HINDI before the predicate, the structure being:

Negative (HINDI)    + Predicate    + Subject    +  Complement(s)

Here are some examples illustrating this structure:

NOM    Hindi Amerikano ang bisita.    The visitor is not an American.
NOM    Hindi abogado and lalaki.    The man is not a lawyer.
ADJ    Hindi maganda ang panahon.    The weather is not good.
ADJ    Hindi malayo ang bahay ko sa opisina.    My house is not far from the office.
VBL    Hindi umuwi si Rey kahapon.    Rey did not come home yesterday.
VBL    Hindi nag-aral para sa eksamen si Art.    Art did not study for the exam.

to be continued...

bawal umihi dito (if you see those words mate, don't 'relieve' yourself in that location  :D )

Must be from a good source or somewhere else in PI - not in your region.

You meant "Sayonara" as the opposite of "Ni hao ma" with the compliment of "xie-xie"?

No. I was making an obtuse reference to "Turning Japanese" by The Vapours.

So you meant GOOD BYE to "Turning Japanese?" (which "sayonara" means)
