i was amazed too when i saw you had created a conlang also based off of
the focus system (i thought i was like the only conlanger who thought of
doing that! =) ).
My relatives are from the Visayas (Aklan and Capiz) . Anyway i think i got
the focus system correct. I added a few more focuses in than i found in my
Tagalog language book. Anyway its still rough (i'm restructuring things).
But you can have a look at it at:

heres a small sample:

I ate yesterday. - Yankait ko kaabo.

Yesterday, the mango was eaten by me - Kaabo, gankait ko ng manga.

I ate at the mall - Jankait ko ng "mall"


some things in Sakatda Ka Kadomo are directly taken from Tagalog. But most
of the words i changed the sounds so they werent too obvious.
