'Jan', also spelled 'dyan' and properly "diyan", means "there".
 
An example in a sentence would be: Diyan yung opisina | The office is there.

Listen to the product selling channels....and you will here the male sellers say...
 
'yaaaaaaaaaaaaan
 
theeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeere...it is...theeeeeeeeeeeeeeere...you go
 
A number of Radio DJs favor the same style.

@BoraMac That’s different than “jan/diyan”, though,…you’re talking about “ayan”.

'yan = diyan = ayan?...mehh.
 
I hear Ayan mostly from females...said short and cute...said clearly...short...simply...motioning...as in "right there for all to see"
 
I hear jan/iyan mostly from males..said long and draw out as in
''yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan...theeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeere...you got it....you knoooooow it"
Not short and neat.
 
Watch the Filipino Shopping Network. The male sellers use jan frequently in their pitches...as that's the one you need.

Old discussion, I know, but I happened to run across this discussed in the Schachter & Otanes book this afternoon.
 
He calls these words “attention directing deictics”…including hayan/ayan, heto/eto, and hayun/ayun, and are distinct from their ang form equivalents (iyan, ito, iyon). Tagalog Reference Grammar pg 215.

@jkos Never too old discussion in Tagalog...that's usually when I make biggest jumps in understanding.
 
Thanks for the reference...from the ANSWER book.
 
I just group...all the similar concepts...."referential tripplets"...

...rather than separating just for the purpose of one more grammar term.
 
If I had been presented a table like this...I could have learned these concepts in 30 minutes. But because of love of HALIMBAWA teaching and lack of grouping coordinated ideas...took me maybe 5 years to tie these concepts together.
 
Thanks as always for thoughtful TAGALOG conversations
