Máyap a ‘yóras pû kekóngan!

Áku pû i Anak ning Aláya at ngéning aldó úmpisân tá’ ya ing pámanigáral king Pámangulit o pámaniúlat king kékata’ng matuâng Kulitan. Magúmpisâ támu karing pékamumúnang dáke ning Pámangulit: ding siuálâ o vowels king amánung Ingglis.

Ding siuála íla pin ding katumbalas na ning vowels o patinig king Filipino. Déting siuálâ ílang pékamumúnang dílîng pánigaralan king pámaniúlat Kulitan. Détinang siuálâ íla pin ding

Nung pákásanapan tamu, déting siuálâ é la makasalésè anti ning ákasanayan támung

Úlîng ding a, i, at u ílang basic vowels ning Kulitan, samantálâ ding e at o ménibat nó man king pámisanmétung-siuálâ ding ai (a pénibatan ning e) at au (a pénibatan ning o).  

At kéni ké pa pû pupúsan ing pámanigáral king Pámangulit. Anggâ king tútukîng pámitalamitan. Máyap a ‘yóras! Dakal pûng salámat kékayu!!!

Good day to all of you!

I am Anak ning Aláya and today we will start to study Pámangulit or writing in our old Kulitan. Let us begin with the first part of Kulitan writing: the siuálâ or “vowels”.

The siuálâs are the equivalent of vowels or patinig in Filipino. These siuálâs are the first glyphs to be encountered in studying Kulitan writing. These vowels are

a, i, u, e and o.

As you can see, these vowels are arranged in the order that we Filipinos are used to:

a, e, i, o and u.

It is because a, i and u are the basic vowels of Kulitan, while e and o came from the monophthongization of ai (where e came from) and au (where o came from).

And here I end the study of Pámangulit. Until next time! Good day! Thank you!
