Repetition spices up how we write and speak. In Filipino, we repeat words or portions of words to mimic sound, emphasize, intensify, disburse, fasten ideas together, and celebrate plurality. Our plurality! Parents and children who open award-winning Auri Asuncion Yambao’s new book are in for a wild, circuitous ride—palibot-libot style—through the Filipino language.
Featuring over 140 Filipino words inside!
