Tagalog WOTD
 
I thought I might start posting the Word Of The Day here on the forums. I had done this before but every WOTD was a separate thread and that was a little overwhelming. Maybe all in a single thread will work though...

Not sure if some are aware, though for the sake of the still confused, the rootword of Matiyak is tiyak, translates to certainly (surely) which I believe would make in an adverb?
 
Example sentence: Tiyak na pupunta siya. She/He will surely go.

@jkos Tag^a means to cut deeply., and it implies to use a very sharp heavy cutting implement to make the item into two pieces. Saying "taga sa leeg" is more correctly translated "a grievous or mortal blow or cut to the neck, implying death is imminent" It's as if saying the chop to the neck is fatal. If one wants to say there is a cut on the neck, it's "may sugat sa leeg" (a non fatal cut on the neck). Literally, there's a neck wound. Taga implies a severe cutting stroke.
 
An idiomatic meaning of taga is to be overcharged (by a seller). Tinaga ka nung tindera = The female vendor overcharged you.
 
Now there is a form of taga- which is pronounced differently, unrelated, and it means "from ". Taga-Bulacan = from Bulacan. Taga-bundok = from the mountains.

Bituingmaykinang tiyak is an adjective. Tiyak kong sisikat ang araw. I am certain that the sun will rise.
 
@hamilee I think in this example it looks like an adverb, where "certain" describes the verb "rising" = "tiyak kong sisikat", right?
