  1. in Ybanag, lagaw means arrogant, boastful

  2. Put “n” in between the letters of “lagaw” and it would be different. BTW, in Leynete and Samarnon, it’s “lakat.”

  3. In Cagayan de Oro City, it’s “lakaw”. I think CDO is predominantly Cebuano-speaking city. ­čÖé

    • Hi. The Hiligaynon word “Lagaw” which means “Travel” in English = “Suroy” in Cebuano not “Lakaw” which means “Walk”. The Cebuano word “lakaw” is “lakat” in Hiligaynon.

      hiligaynon: “diin ka malagaw?”
      cebuano: “asa ka suroy?”
