What is the meaning of Conyo in English?

The word “conyo” is a Spanish word which refers to the female genitalia. It’s a common Spanish idiom that is often thought of as rude. Locals usually use it to emphasize how they feel.

But in the Philippines, the word “conyo” means something completely different. People often use the word “conyo” to describe a language where people speak Taglish, which is a mix of English and Filipino, in a strange way.

Additionally, it is spoken by rich Filipino kids who grew up speaking English as their first language because their nannies, relatives, friends, and the media taught them only a little bit of Filipino Tagalog.

Example of Common Conyo Phrases

Some people in the area call people who talk this way “conyo kids,” even if they aren’t from the upper class, because of these kinds of observations. On the other hand, rich kids are called “conyo kids” right away because of their social status.

Either way, some people don’t like how the language or culture of Conyo is used because it makes it sound like the native language needs to be mixed with English and that only educated people speak it.

Here are some common conyo phrase in Filipino

Don’t go there because it’s so (delikado) dangerous.
You’re so tagal (long), we’ve been waiting here for a long time.
Why so init(hot) here.
You’re so mabaho (stinky) or (smelly).
Can you please kuha(get) my bag.
common example phrases of conyo

This kind of language is also called “Engalog,” which means that Tagalog words or phrases are used in sentences that are mostly in English. Taglish, on the other hand, is when English words or phrases are used in a sentence that is mostly in Tagalog.

What is the meaning of Conyo in Tagalog?

Ang salitang conyo ay tumutukoy sa pagsasalita ng wikang Filipino at Ingles na pigsasama-sama o pinagaghahalo halo sa pagbubuo ng isang pahayag.

Dagdag pa rito, ang conyo ay nagsimula noong ika-19 na siglo at hangangs a kasalukuyan ay patuloy paring ginagamit ng mga Filipino.

“Ang hindi magmahal sa sariling wika ay higit pa sa hayop at malansang isda.” – Dr. Jose Rizal

Ngunit sa makabagong henerasyon ito ay pinag halong Ingles at Tagalog o Taglish. Ang mga taong madalas gamitin ang conyo bilang pananalita ay nahihirapan gamiting ang Wikang Filipino na walang halong Inggles.

Mula dito, ang lagi nating iniisip na ang mga taong gumagamit ng conyo ay galing sa mayaman o mataas na antas ng pamumuhay. 

Halimbawa ng Conyo sa mga Parirala

Tara na (let’s eat) kain tayo.
Sabi ng mama ko (pretty) magandaraw ako.
Ang (naughty) pilyo mo.
Hindi ko siya (like) gusto.
Aalis na baka ma late(huli or maiwan) pa kayo.
