That awkward moment when you find out that even the word Tatay, for father, and Nanay, for mother, aren’t native words, but loan words from the Nahuatl language (Aztec Mexican), which is Tatl and Nantl.
eh? di nga? paano naman kung ama at ina? hmm…
Oo, totoo ito. Ngunit ama at ina ay tama. Ang mga katutubong salitang Tagalog. :)
(English: Yes, it’s true. But ama (father) and ina (mother) are correct. They are native Tagalog words.)
