Noun[edit]

Bisaya

  2. the Cebuano language (see usage notes)

Usage notes[edit]

Most speakers of the language, while speaking in Cebuano, would usually call the language as Bisaya or Binisaya. Some speakers refuse to call the language Cebuano since the language is also used in other parts of the Visayas and Mindanao. In Cebu, and in media, the language is called Sinugbuanon. Cebuano, as a name of the language, is almost only used in English.
