Senate Minority Leader Aquilino Pimentel Jr on Thursday expressed concern that the film Sakal, Sakali, Saklolo is conveying a wrong message to Filipinos by denigrating the use of the Visayan language, which is most widely spoken in the Visayas and large parts of Mindanao.

Pimentel, who hails from Mindanao, cited a portion of the film where a grandmother was telling a nanny (yaya) in Pilipino: “Bakit pinapalaki ninyong Bisaya ang apo ko?” (Why are you rearing my grandchild as a Bisaya?)

    Siguro hindi naman nila ibig sabihin na mababa ang mga visaya and superior ang tagalog. nagkataon lang kasi “kaaramihan”(hindi lahat) ng mga yaya or namamasukan kasambahay eh galing sa Visaya.
    Parang kapampangan din kung pure kapampangan accent ka wala kang “H” sa mga words na may H. And nilalagyan naman nila ng H yung mga words na walang H. Sa Kapampangan normal yon. Pero kung nasa manila ka tapos ganoon ka magsalita parang hindi normal at nakakatawang pakingan diba. Same with Visaya accent applies. Ayy suuss naman!!! parang hindi kayo Pinoy kung hindi nyo magets.

    yes. ok lang ‘yun. sa mga tagalog nga kung magsalita walang “f”, they pronounce it as “p”.
