There have been contemplates directed about Zamboanga Chabacano. Malbago (2000) who contemplated the language profile of Zamboanga City uncovered that Chabacano is as yet the prevailing language of the city. Edding (2003) in her examination on Chabacano discovered that local and non-local Chabacano speakers' reactions have critical contrasts in some vocabulary regarding the financial status, sex, ethnicity and instructive capability of the respondents. Cruz (2005) in her investigation on the grammar of Zamboanga Chabacano uncovered, among others, that Zamboanga Chabacano follows Verb-Subject-Object (VSO) Pattern. Olaer's (2005) concentrate on the non-Spanish idiolect creation of Zamboanga Chabacano demonstrated that the 30% of the Zamboanga Chabacano lexis originates from the three dialects: Tagalog, Cebuano and Hiligaynon. In like manner, Cabangon's (2006) theory on the rustic and urban Zamboanga Chabacano uncovered the importation of words from Bisaya, Tagalog and English. It ought to be noticed that none of the previously mentioned examinations contrasted or differentiated Zamboanga Chabacano and another sort like the Cavite Chabacano. Beside that, no investigation has been led on the phonological changes

on the classifications of vowel move, digestion/dissimilation and epenthesis/aphesis. Thus, to have one is important to give information expected to the advancement of an English, Spanish, Cavite and Zamboanga Chavacano Dictionary. Lexical Varieties Riego de Dios (1989) conducted the only quantitative study was carried on the Cotabato variety of Chabacano, a southern variety historically related to ZM. Based on an analysis of 6,542 entries, 82.49% of the words had an identifiable Spanish origin, 4.7% of Tagalog and about 2.5% of the words had English origin; the remaining words are divided between 4.9% from “local sources” (unspecified), 2.12% from Cebuano, 1.3% from foreign languages other than Spanish and English, and 1.27% from Hiligaynon (ibid. 188). Given the lexical similarities across the Chabacano varieties one would expect similar numbers in CC. At the same time CC seems to be the most hispanized variety of the surviving Chabacano varieties. Frake (1967) observes that in the ZM variety there is a split between related pairs of adjectives where positive attributes e.g. limpyo ‘clean’ have a Spanish form, and a the corresponding negative adjective has a Tagalog form e.g. marusing ‘dirty.’ However, this split is not observed in the Cavite variety where most pairs have Spanish forms for both members. Aside from differences among individual lexemes that show a preponderance of Spanish terms in Cavite (Molony 1974: 20), there are some paradigmatic differences that place Cavite as having the most hispanized lexicon. Some features of this lexicon are the paradigm of ordinal numbers e.g. ika- dos ‘second’ (ZM) Segundo ‘second’ (CC), and the absence in the Cavite dialect of the Filipino distinction between inclusive and exclusive 1st person plural pronouns (Steinkruger 2008: 217).

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
