Time for another Filipino word, and since today is April Fools’ Day, let’s talk about gago. 🙂
Gago is the Filipino word for fool. Actually, there are many variations of it, such as tanga, ungas, ulaga, maas, engot but I’m focusing on gago because it has a high search volume. Hehe.
Well, gago is actually a male fool, and for female, we used the word gaga. So, when you’re a male and someone told you “Gaga ka!”, he might mean that you’re a fool and gay at the same time. 🙂
Like payo, gago comes in different flavors with a little different meaning when prefixes, infixes and suffixes are used. Here are some of it and their translations.
- ginago. fooled.
- ginagago. being fooled.
- naggaguhan. fooled each other.
Some sample sentences.
- Ginago nya ako. He fooled me.
- Ginagago sya ng asawa nya. He is being fooled by his wife.
- Ang dalawang gago ay naggaguhan. The two fools fooled each other.
That’s all for today. Happy Gago Day! 🙂
