Question: Explanation for Maitaguyod?
 
It's stated as meaning to support something but is that literal, like supporting a physical object? Or is the meaning to support someone?

@Kersheys
Usually it’s to support your family, support someone, support a cause, support a program, things like that.

@Kersheys Itaguyod carries a connotation of the abstract, usually pertaining to a value or an institution that stands for the same. It's like the choice between "to erect" and "to establish." You can erect a building, but you establish an institution. For example, "Nais kong itaguyod ang mga karapatan ng mga kababaihan sa ating lipunan."
