  Waray-waray defended
Somehow, in recent decades, half of the two same-word label got lost or was dropped, and the word "Waray" (with stress on the second syllable) was appropriated to substitute for the original label.
In her heyday, Imelda in fact attempted to substitute her artificial label with "may ada-ada." However, contrary to her wish, the "Waray-waray" tag stuck; "may ada-ada" was rejected as substitute label, and its meaning evolved to include persons who suffer from occasional loss of sanity.
So for now, "Waray-waray" or its shortened version "Waray" is largely perceived as an embarrassing label among the schooled segment of the Leyte-Samar population.

 About Culture and Arts   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The workshop, partly funded by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts, was intended to revive Waray literature and to motivate locals to write again in Waray, and to expose them to the craft of creative writing.
They were also highly attuned, attentive and flexible to the needs of the participants, smoothly switching from English to Waray in their discussions, and emphasizing important points of discussion, all contributing to an atmosphere, which encouraged everyone’s participation.
The participants, even with an uneven age range (the oldest was 72 and the youngest was 17), enthusiastically participated during the entire workshop, posing questions to the panelists, and were, themselves, open to the criticisms of their works.

 Information About Waray
Standard Waray is roughly based on the dialect of the language as spoken in the island of Leyte but this is merely because many Waray authors who got their works published hailed from Leyte and because the regional center of Eastern Visayas is in Tacloban City, in Leyte.
Eastern Samar dialects of the Waray language though are distinct in their use of a schwa vowel while Northern Samar varieties use "s" in certain grammar words like pronouns and case markers where most Waray dialects uses "h".
The word "waray", in fact, is better than "Filipino" and "Philippines" both of which are derived from King Philip II of Spain who was a tyrant, colonizing king.

We consider that we still have work to do until every region and every town that has significant numbers of Waray speaking people has been saturated with the gospel of Christ.
