Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
Matt: Hello Listener! Welcome back to FilipinoPod101.com. This is Lower Beginner, season 1, lesson 23, Talking About Pain in Filipino. I’m Matt.
Ice: Hello. And I’m Ice.
Matt: In this lesson, you’ll learn how to talk about the parts of the body, and how to ask if someone is okay or is hurt.
Ice: Saying where you are experiencing pain is important, especially in emergency situations.
Matt: Yes, that’s right. So now let’s see how to say where you're hurt in daily conversation.
Ice: The conversation takes place at a hospital, between a doctor and a patient.
Matt: The doctor will be using casual Filipino, but the patient will be using the polite form. All right! Let’s listen to the conversation.
DIALOGUE
Doktor: Saang parte ng katawan ang masakit?
Pasyente: Sa ulo po.
Doktor: Saang parte ng ulo ang masakit?
Pasyente: Sa mata po.
Doktor: Sige, inumin mo itong gamot.
English Host: Let’s hear the conversation one time slowly.
Doktor: Saang parte ng katawan ang masakit?
Pasyente: Sa ulo po.
Doktor: Saang parte ng ulo ang masakit?
Pasyente: Sa mata po.
Doktor: Sige, inumin mo itong gamot.
English Host: Now let’s hear it with the English translation.
Doktor: Saang parte ng katawan ang masakit?
Matt: Which part of your body hurts?
Pasyente: Sa ulo po.
Matt: My head.
Doktor: Saang parte ng ulo ang masakit?
Matt: Which part of your head hurts?
Pasyente: Sa mata po.
Matt: My eyes.
Doktor: Sige, inumin mo itong gamot.
Matt: All right, drink this medicine.
POST CONVERSATION BANTER
Ice: When Filipinos are sick they normally consult with doctors in hospitals like people in most countries.
Matt: But I've also heard that there is a special doctor who cures people by means of herbs, oracles, and prayers.
Ice: Yes that’s right. We call this doctor the “albularyo”. The “albularyo” is not licensed or proven to cure people, yet people still believe in them.
Matt: How do they cure or diagnose people?
Ice: Albularyo believe that bad spirits and the imbalance of the body with nature cause illness and sickness. They diagnose people by melting wax from a candle and then pouring it into a pot filled with water.
Matt: So if some kind of shape comes out, the person interprets it as the thing that’s causing the illness?
Ice: Yep.
Matt: That’s interesting!

KEY VOCAB AND PHRASES
Matt: Let’s take a closer look at the usage of some of the words and phrases from this lesson.
Ice: The first word is the noun “gamot”.
Matt: This refers to a substance or something. This means “medicine", "cure", or "treatment”. So we can use it to form the sentence “Give me medicine”, right?
Ice: Yes, and that would be “Bigyan mo ako ng gamot”, where “bigyan mo ako” means “give me” and “gamot” means “medicine”.
Matt: Great! Now how about the next word?
Ice: The second key vocabulary is “masakit”.
Matt: This is an adjective that describes something that's affected with pain, shock, distress, or trouble. In other words, it means “hurt or painful”.
Ice: Here it is in a sentence - “Masakit ang likod ko.”
Matt: Which means “My back hurts.”
Ice: And lastly, we have “mata”.
Matt: Which means “eye” and “eyes”. We can use it to express the sentence “My eyes are getting blurred”.
Ice: That is “Malabo na ang mga mata ko”, where “malabo na” means “getting blurred”, and “ang mga mata ko” refers to “my eyes”.
Matt: Great! Now onto the grammar.
GRAMMAR POINT
Matt: In this lesson, you’ll learn how to talk about the parts of the body, and how to ask if someone is all right.
Ice: The first phrase that you use to ask if someone is alright or feeling well is “Ayos ka lang ba?”.
Matt: Which means “Are you okay?”.
Ice: Now if you want to ask where a person is feeling pain, you use the phrase “Saan masakit?”.
Matt: Which means “Where does it hurt?”.
Ice: You can also use the longer version, which is “Saang parte ng katawan masakit?”.
Matt: Or “Which part of your body hurts?”.
Ice: Now of course, you have to learn to say where you are feeling pain.
Matt: Yes, so if you were asked the question "Where does it hurt?"...
Ice: Which is “Saang parte masakit?” or “Saang parte ng katawan masakit?”
Matt: ...how do you respond?
Ice: For that, we first say “sa” and then say the body part we want to talk about.
Matt: Therefore, if your foot hurts, you simply answer...
Ice: “sa paa”, “paa” is the word meaning “foot”. You could also choose to add "masakit" to the end of the sentence.
Matt: So you can also say...
Ice: “sa paa masakit”
Matt: It means “My feet hurt”. Now let’s talk about some body parts and their equivalent words in Filipino.
Ice: Okay, but we’ll just go through a few words now. For the complete list of commonly used terms for the body, check the lesson notes.
Matt: All right, let’s start with the word for "head".
Ice: That would be ulo (slow) ulo.
Matt: How about “eye”?
Ice: mata (slow) mata
Matt: What’s Filipino word for "nose"?
Ice: ilong (slow) ilong
Matt: What about "mouth"?
Ice: bibig (slow) bibig
Matt: How do you say "hand"?
Ice: kamay (slow) kamay
Matt: What about "knee"?
Ice: tuhod (slow) tuhod
Matt: Lastly, "foot" is...
Ice: paa (slow) paa

Outro

Matt: Well, that’s all we have for this lesson.
Ice: Yes, but before we see you next time, be sure to do some practice.
Matt: ...because practice makes perfect! Thanks for listening everyone, bye!
Ice: Paalam!
