used lexicons are the recorded with higher frequency such as the words “primero” with 75%, “Segundo” with 75%. “tercero” with 75%, “cuatro” with 75% and “quinto” with 75% that are 1 st , 2 nd , 3 rd , 4 th and 5 th in English lexicons. Given the lexical similarities across the Chabacano varieties one would expect similar numbers in Spanish, Chabacano ordinal numbers seems to be the most hispanized variety of the surviving Chabacano varieties (Frake 1967). 1.6.2 Descriptive Adjectives LEXICON MEAN Frequency (12 participants from different barangays) Percentage (%) 1.

It is shown that the recorded lexicons are having similarities in Spanish words especially in varieties of adjectives. Camins (1999) refered to that Chabacano all began from our need to speak with Spanish Colonizers. He further examined that Chabacano in Cavite and that in Zamboanga are lexically and phonologically closer to the Spanish language. The blend of neighborhood and Spanish lexical things involves the language corpus of the two Chabacano assortments. In any case, notwithstanding the land and time partition of both Chabacano dialects, these assortments share regular highlights.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
