Bikol is a language spoken by people in the Bicol region on southeastern Luzon in the Philippines. It was highly influenced by the Spanish language.

Pronunciation guide[edit]

Vowels[edit]

The Bicol language generally has only 5 main vowels. They are pronounced just like their English counterparts. But there are some tricky pronunciations when reading Bicol texts, like glottal stops.

  • Aa = as in father
  • Ee = as in eggplant
  • Ii = as in ink
  • Oo = as in order
  • Uu = as in oooohh (not 'u' in "under")

The ' is a glottal stop just like saying the word "butter" with a stop in the middle. (Buhh'er)

Consonants[edit]

  • Pronounced like English alphabet*
