Kamusta ... Is it a must to pay
That's a great question. Talaga is used for both and yes its meaning depends on the intonation of its delivery that's why practice is key! Salamat.
Can you please clarify the following:
Really? - when used to express excitement
Really? - when used to express doubt
Do you use the same word “Talaga” except the tone and expression are different?
You're right. Thanks for helping each other out! Salamat sa iyong komento Marie!

Galing o magaling?
Is galing short for magaling? How can you tell the difference phonetically between GAling and gaLING from the writing?
Hello Craig! It is short for magaling when you mean "awesome!"
When you mean "coming from or came from" and use the short "galing" it would come from the original longer word "nanggaling".
So two words spelled the same when shortened, but mean differently. Context will always determine the difference.
Hope that helps!
We're glad you're enjoying learning with us! Thank you for helping us as well with your feedback 😊 Salamat!
Great questions! The difference between GAling and gaLING when written can only be determined through the context it's written in.
Copy and paste works. Thank you. I paste into MS Note so it can always be available, on or offline
