How Davaoenos speak Tagalog

I have a hard time teaching Filipino (or tagalog) to my son. Although he grew up speaking in English, he is already catching up with tagalog. However, I noticed that every time he tries to speak tagalog, he mixes it up with some bisaya words. I am trying my best to correct his grammar in Filipino but still the same, he speaks Filipino- the Davao way.

Until I read an article in SUNSTAR about the so-called Davao tagalog. It was written by Rene Lizada. I was smiling as I went through his explanation of the Davao tagalog. True enough, my son speaks the same way and sometimes, I also unintentionally talk that way to others. 🙂
