Hiligaynon (Hee–luh–gai–nun) is one of the most widely spoken language in the Philippines. It is a 'mother tongue language' that was only formally taught in schools 10 years ago. With the language being so widely spoken, it's speakers developed an identity that's distinguishable, especially within the Filipino community. This is what this project represents. Linguahi Ko, Wika Ko is an editorial that visualises the intonation of the Hiligaynon language as the language’s distinct characteristic. The Hiligaynon language of the Philippines has a characteristic for sounding 'sweeter' and with a 'sing song' tone compared to other Philippine languages. This editorial is an exploration of how Hiligaynon intonation is visualised in comparison to Filipino and English.
