 Butterfly, an odd word? (page 2) | Antimoon Forum
But in the pre-hispanic languages of the Philippines, consonants were inherently followed by a vowel sound, so a word like "parpar" would've either been pronounced as "para-para" (the 'a' pronounced like the 'u' in "up") or "paru-paru" (pre-hispanic Filipinos did not differentiate between 'o' and 'u').
In Maranao, the language of heavily Islamic Mindanao Island of the Philippines, the word for butterfly is "paroparo." Could our words for butterfly be related to the Hebrew "parpar," originating from the Afro-Asiatic language family?
This is possible considering that pre-hispanic Philippines was made up of several dozen sultanates and the people throughout the islands wrote in a script that the Spaniards called "caracteres moriscos" due to the fact the it came from the Tagalog Muslims of Manila.
