Saan is more directional, while Nasaan more locative

Saan is used for things not right now. Saan ka (where are you going)? Saan galing (where [are you] coming from)? Nasaan ka (where are you right now). Since Philippine languages don't have a copula "to be", many of their words where can take multiple aspects. Standard Cebuano marks where for all 3 "tenses". Diin, Hain, Asa. Standard Tagalog only marks for "present" and "non present".

Maraming salamat po Sir. Now, it's clear to me. The remark about Cebuano is also nice to know and much appreciated extra information
