Mas madalas ginagamit ang "ikinagagalak kitang makilala" sapagkat mas pormal pa ang ikinalulugod.
Dear FilipinoPod101 Team,
Ano ang mas karaniwan?
1. Ikinalulugod kitang makilala o
2. Ikinagagalak kitang makilala
That's a great suggestion! Locally, you can say "paumanhin po" to say excuse me or sorry depending on the situation.

Filipino is influenced by various cultures and not only English and Spanish but greatly also, Malay. Borrowed words on the other hand almost always have their own uniquely Filipino way of being spelled e.g. dyet for jet and the like.
I would like to read/hear Tagalog phrases that do not use words borrowed from Spanish or English,
especially Tagalog terms that exist or are made-up for pre-Spanish communication, as would be used in a movie about the Tagalog tribes.
Though it might not qualify as key-phrases, I wish Filipino would use more Tagalog words for modern things insofar as that is possible.
