Question: What are all the known ways to say the cardinal directions? Specifically the Tagalog derived directions and also just the variations of each of the four on their own, so not the directions in between.
Similar to how "Timog" has the added ka- prefix for "Katimugan" (southern/southern area.) I've heard "Kahilagan" from "Hilaga" used before. For "Silangan" the only other variant I've heard for it is of course "Silanganan" from Lupang Hinirang. What about "Kanluran"? To those who know, does it have any other variants or any of the other directions for that matter?
@borr north - hilaga; ka-hilaga-an; (root word-hilaga=north) kahilagaan south- timog; ka-timug-an; (root word-timog=south) katimugan west-kanluran; ka-kanluran-an; (root word-kanlong=hide/refuge) kakanluranan east-silangan; ka-silangan-an; (root word-silang=rise/birth) kasilanganan - No one uses this probably because it has similar sound with negative words like kasinungalingan - lie or kasalanan - sin
