English: push
Cebuano: tulod (v); tukmod (n); duot (n); duso (v);

Bisaya speakers add a prefix “i” pronounced long ee before each action word if the sentence is a request. The person requests the other person to push the door, for example, “push the door”. In Cebuano, “itulod and pwertahan“.


English: Just a little push and this old car will move.
Cebuano: Gamay lang na tulod ug kini’ng sakyanan mo dagan na.
