This was added (cryptically) in the middle of the Tagalog entry. Does it warrant a page (or pages) of its own? --EncycloPetey 18:41, 9 November 2006 (UTC)

Also tatay.

Tagalog slang erpat; a derivative of the Latin origin pater.

Yes, tatay is a synonym for ama, and erpat is Pinoy slang for the same thing. As erpat comes from pater, so ermat is slang for mater. —Stephen 19:08, 9 November 2006 (UTC)
