Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Capiznon is an Austronesian language spoken in Western Visayas in the Philippines. Capiznon is concentrated in the province of Capiz in the northeast of Panay Island. It is a member of the Visayan language family and the people are part of the wider Visayan ethnolinguistic group, who constitute the largest Filipino ethnolinguistic group. It is often confused with Hiligaynon, but it has its own unique vocabulary and accent. The Capiznon vocabulary also includes Akeanon and Waray words. The Capiznon can also be claimed as the fastest language in the region. Rural farmers speak a certain variety that is now disappearing as the younger Capiznons adopt a more Hiligaynon-like language with a slower pace and softer and longer vowels.show more
