  5. what is pl blend in tagalog word

    1. The pl blend is a consonant blend made up of two consonants that make a distinct sound. The sound of both consonants is heard in the blend. Examples of Filipino words with the pl blend are plano, plantsa, plato, and planeta. There are more examples in the PDF file above. Click the link “Kambal Katinig.”

  6. Hi do you have kambal katinig with /dw/ sw/ gw/kw?

    1. Hi, Claire! The only words I can find that start with the kambal katinig dw, gw, kw, or sw are borrowed words from other languages such as dwarf, kwanza, kwaki, swastika, swatsoy. The word swayon is from the Iloko dialect. Other words in the Disyonaryong Filipino are derived from the English language, such as swindler and switch.

      Filipino words usually have the letter u in between the consonants, such as duw (du-wag, du-wal, du-wen-de), guw (e.g., gu-war-di-ya, gu-wan-tes, gu-wa-po), kuw (e.g., ku-wen-to, ku-win-tas, ku-war-ta), suw (e.g., su-wer-te, su-wel-do, su-we-ro). With the letter u in between, these are not examples of kambal katinig. Besides, the two consonants are in separate syllables. Kambal katinig are found in the same syllable.

      Come to think of it, some people do consider spelling words such as kuwento, suweldo, and puwersa as kwento, sweldo, and pwersa. They say that as a rule, “kung ano ang bigkas, siyang baybay, siyang sulat.” Although, when writing, more people insert the letter U between the consonants.

      If you find examples of the kambal katinig you mentioned, please leave a comment so that other teachers or parents are informed. Maybe there are Filipino words that have those kambal katinig but not necessarily begin with them. Thank you for your question.
