Cultural Insight
John: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Camille: The word salamat is said to have been of Semitic origin. It sounds similar to the Arabic "salam" and the Hebrew "shalom," both meaning "peace." Filipino has been influenced by many languages throughout history, so do not be surprised if you find similar sounding words from other languages, most especially Spanish and English words.
