Can someone help identify this word from a video?
I stumbled across this video on youtube called "Herman - Tirador ng Munti" rGEPPX3-DlM
starting at around 21:37 he says "... nasungkit ng dulo ng patalim nila sa akin(g) tagiliran, dito sa may (i)lalim ng ???"
Ilang beses kong inulit-ulit di ko pa rin makuha. Paligpi?? Paligpit?? O ibang salita? Gusto ko lang malaman kung ano yung sinabi nya sa dulo.
I'm looking to know the word he says at the end.

Palikpik is fin in English. I think what he's trying to say is he was hit under the scapula.

Nung tinuro nya sa ilalim ng balikat nya nahulaan ko na. Palikpik pala, maraming salamat!

You mean "nahulaan (you were able to guess (or discern) by then) ko na". The word you used - is non-existent.
Palikpik is literally "fin", as said above, but in this context, he was referring to his side (as humans don't have fins).

@Ignatius Yeah, normally I'm on the pc. On mobile it tends to scramble Tagalog via autocorrect or sometimes I get a typo haha thank you. I changed it. I'm looking for videos like this as I'm at the stage of adding obscure and expanded vocab, idioms and listening to words used in a metaphorical way.
For some reason I had a lapse and couldn't pick up the word even after repeating it several times. Then when I saw the reply with PALIKPIK I was like "of course, how did I not hear that!" lol
I haven't heard that word since I was a kid and it all made sense in context

@borr I will get technical here. When Filipinos refer to palikpik as it relates to the human body, we refer to the big muscle seen on the side of the torso, and wraps around to the back, specifically, the latissimus dorsi. The dorsal fin of the shark (pating) is the most well known palikpik (fin). I am just guessing that perhaps, the dorsi (side, and into the back) part is how palikpik and fin got to be associated. Just my supposition.
