it made me confused now... heheh... ice cream - SORBETES, right? anu yun, filipino or tagalog?
okay, ganito yan... when we say tagalog, it only includes words which are native to the tagalog speaking peoples (CALABARZON and MIMAROPA regions) When we say Filipino, it includes all the words that have been assimilated into the Filipino language from other languages and dialects. nevertheless, filipino is still Tagalog-based.
Yung word na Sorbetes is not a tagalog word but a Spanish Preferencia. And if it's Spanish Preferencia, then it is Filipino. it's pretty obvious it didnt come from us kasi the word for the one who peddles ice cream is called a "sorbetero". notice that the ending "ero" is common among spanish nouns, and u never find such ending in other tagalog words.
another thing, the sorbetes is not really what it's called sorbetes.. it comes from the Spanish word "Helado" which then originated in Italian "Gelato".. kaya nga when you go to Glorietta or Greenbelt, may makikita ka dung Ice Cream stall na ang pangalan ay "gelato". yun yun.
now, iba naman ang sorbetes sa Sorbet. Sorbet is a type of beverage that is really made of ice and syrup, pwedeng fruit syrup or white wine etc..it is otherwise known as "sherbet" and it is not a spanish word but arabic "Sharbat"
goin back, after 2001 nagkaron ng deliberation yung SWP otherwise known as the "Suriang Wikang Pambansa" - this is the official agency that deals with the filipino language.
sabi ng SWP na ang mga assimilated words, pwede nang isalin sa Filipino by just changing the spelling without changing the pronunciation.. which means, kung ano ang basa, sya din ang sulat.
so yung ice cream, instead na tatawaging Sorbetes or Helado, "Ays Krim" nalang. ang sagwa noh? sira ulo yung nagpa uso nyan but yeah, that's how distorted our once proud and noble language is.
