So many ways to LOSE...only one way to WIN UMIYAK ako
What do we make of highly related roots...with vast differences in AFFIXES... For example... TALO...Lost/Defeated...we have Tinalo, Nagtalo, Tumalo, Natalo....more ? Then for NALO WINNNNNN WIN WIN NALO TAYO! ...we have NANALO....hmmmmm...no more? Why so many ways to LOSE and only one way to WIN? And if I must have one way...give me TINALO...or MAGNALO at least. Any insights? Advance Salamt for taking me TAAS.
@BoraMac I think this is common with native Tagalog words. One root is stretched to the limit.
Bili can also mean "sell" as in the words "magbili, ipagbili, maipagbili".
There are some words that seem to mean win, that are not however based on the talo root.
One possible explanation for the manalo, panalo type construction lies in how early Tagalog had a type of assimilated conjugation. These assimilated forms exist in remnants, such as labas-masok "labas-masokTAGALOG labas-masok n., adj. frequently going in and out of a place"
@BoraMac I got it from cornell.academia.edu /ChristopherSundita this guys old personal blog. He got it from two old Spanish language grammars on Tagalog, "Francisco Blancas de San José's 1610 Arte y Reglas de la lengua tagala and Fr. Sebastián de Totanes's 1745 Arte de la lengua tagala"
Assimilated form is when part of the word is merged into another.

@jkos I'll sing it for you ha ha ha ha ha ha, the tune came from a beautiful Kundiman song -karinosa sung by Asia's Queen of Song PIlita Corrales www.youtube.com/watc h?v=YfqcPksn0VM ; sounds nationalistic though
