Speaking Cebuano 5 (Numbers)

Being colonized by the Spanish, Japanese, Americans, Chinese, and Malays for probably the entire existence of Cebu, its not surprising that our culture is rootly indebted to these countries. For one, our

 numbering system is patterned after the Spanish.  However, even then, since we do have our own language as well called Cebuano, we used both languages for our numbering system. 

 

 

In Cebu, we have two sets of numbering system. One is use for money related activities while the other is use for general counting. Kinda hard to explain why though. (The koreans also have a similar case to this with their Sino-Native and Chinese Numbering)

The left side in the cebuano part is the normal general counting while on the right is the one use for  money transacting.

ex. tag pila ning coke?( how much is this coke)

     singko pisos.(5 pesos)

     Otso pisos (8 pesos)

      

     Pila gusto nmo( how many do you want)

     duha ka buok (two pieces)  

     

     Ika-pila ka na tao sa linya? ( On what number on que line are you?)  

     Ika tulo ko (Third on the line)
