Akeanon

Akeanon (or "Aklanon" proper) is a Visayan language spoken by about 400,000 people living in Aklan in the Philippines. Ethnologue has classified the language to be 65-68% mutually intelligible and lexically similar to Hiligaynon. It is unique among Philippine languages since it possesses the digraph ea ("l" pronounced with rolling "r" sound). According to legend, the digraph originated from the first ruler of Aklan, Datu Bangkaya, who had a short tongue and therefore could not pronounce the "l" sound.

Ibayjanon

language
name=Ibayjanon
nativename=Ibayjanon
familycolor=Austronesian
states=Philippines
region=Ibajay, Aklan
speakers= 39, 643
script=Latin (Filipino variant);
"Historically written in Baybayin"
iso2=phi|iso3=mlz

Ibayjanon is a Visayan language spoken by 39,643 people in thirty-six villages of the mainland of the town of Ibajay, Aklan. It is 93% lexically similar to Akeanon, hence, the ambiguity of its classification as a closely-related sister language, or a dialect, of Aklanon.
Other than its difference from the accent of Akeanon proper, terminology in Ibayjanon also differ from the standard Aklanon. Ibayjanon has shortened versions of Aklanon words, as Ibayjanon speakers are very fond of shortening Aklanon words.
Some variant terms are also used only in Ibayjanon. Like pakas, which means baeoe in Akeanon, kabod which means hamtak in Akeanon. Makara in Ibayjanon and makaraya in Aklanon.

Philippine National Proverb:

"Ang Hindi marunong lumingon sa pinanggalingan ay Hindi makakarating sa paroroonan."(Filipino)

"Ro uwa' gatan-aw sa anang ginhalinan hay indi makaabut sa anang ginapaeangpan" (Akeanon)

"Ro uwa ga balikid sa anang hinalinan hay indi makaabut sa anang paeaadtunan" (Ibayjanon)

"He who does not look back from where he came from, will never reach his destination." (English)
