TRANSLATION 101-2B Kalinga (Tanudan Area)

Municipality  : Tanudan
Province       : Kalinga
Region          : Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR)
Country         : Philippines
Dialect          : Nimangali or Tinaluktok


I have given a list of words and sentences in English to another native of Tanudan, Kalinga for him to translate in their own local dialect. 
There were slight differences between this and the previous one but they said that it is a matter of how it is pronounced and used in a sentence.
He added, since most of their domesticated pigs usually roam freely around their backyard, they call their pigs to attention by shouting "Yuka....Yuka! (Yooka...Yooka!)"

If you find this story/blogpost interesting and/or had helped you in any way (in your researches, works, travels, blogs, adventures, homeworks at school, a personal project and more), I'd like to hear a word or two from wonderful people like you or simply Like "pagnapagna" in Facebook. I'd be very thankful. It gives me inspirations. Cheers!
