Bicol-English-Tagalog Dictionary

Bicol-English-Tagalog Dictionary for Sale!

Naguena ako, nagbibikol-naga, pero may mga tataramon na bikol na minsan dai ko pa bisto o dai ko pa nadangog. (Naguena ako, nagsasalita ng bikol-naga, pero may mga salita na bikol na minsan hindi ko kilala o hindi ko pa narinig). Oops, did I translate it correctly? hahaha.

I'm no expert when it comes to our local dialect, but I am very proud of it. I have a Buhinon blood from my mother side, I can understand my relatives but I can't speak Buhinon fluently. We are in one region, but by just traveling to another city/municipality/province to another, there is already a change in diction, pronunciation and even in words.  Indeed we have a very rich culture and literature. Our dialect is not that complicated but it's interesting and easy to learn.

For those who want to learn our dialect, this Bicol-English-Tagalog Dictionary written by Jerry Escoto Adrados will surely help you a lot. Available at Giringgiting (beside Kopiroti) at The Cereza Compound, Magsaysay Avenue, Naga City for only Php 375.00. This isn't just a simple book or even a dictionary, this is like a window to our Bicolano Culture.

For deliveries within Naga City and nearby municipalities please contact 09079807551 / 09194907575 and look for Jericho.
