Kailan Dapat Gamitin Ang "po" At "koyah"


Recommended Posts

"po" should be used everytime you want to be courteous in a tagalog conversation.

 

"koyah" - i have no idea how this is used. siguro pag gusto mo ipaamoy yung hininga mo sa kausap mo. parang "hi koyahhhhhh.." sa mukha ng kausap mo.

natawa ko d2. hindi naman sguro para lng ipaamoy ung breath mo. :lol:

 

its a sign of respect lng para sa mga tagalog peeps..at sa iba p.

yet sa mga visayan..hindi uso ang po at opo.

i find it annoying when someone uses "po" to me on texts and emails...prang condescending ang dating

 

but i teach my kids to say po, opo, kuya and ate, manang, manong (wali or ading) and of course mag mano as a sign of respect...

and of course any filipino they encounter with are all "titas" and "titos"

kahit man lang yung kultura nating yun gusto kong maibahagi sa kanila.

i used po and koyah sa ibang tao, or outside the house, depende rin sa kausap mo, usually sa mga elders nalang talaga, sometimes kc pag nararamdaman ko na naiirita un kausap ko when i use po at koyah i stop... some people kc want them to be treated as magka age level lang kayo, alam mo na, ageless na kc ang mga tao ngayon... hindi mo na ma distinguish ang age, maliban nalang sa mga aged na talaga (pasintabi po) -_-
