Someone wants to know the meaning of the Tagalog or Filipino word dagisunan. The closest thing we found is the word dagison (pronounced da-GI-son)…
Dagison is a noun that, in Filipino, means “ipod” (when people riding a jeepney move and compress themselves so that more people can find space to sit in the already cramped quarters of a jeepney).
People searching for the meaning of (o ang kahulugan ng) dagisunan probably found it in Luha Ng Buwaya (by Amado V. Hernandez):
Ang Sampilong ay isang bayang lihis sa lansangang pambansa sa isang lalawigan sa Luson. Walang himpilan ng tren at makaipat maghapon kung daanan o tigilan ng bus. Mangisa-ngisang dyipni at kalesa ang dagisunan ng mga nagyayaot dito.
Whew! We couldn’t find the meaning of nagyayaot, but our guess is that it means “to go to in great numbers.”
Nagyayaot = Pumupunta?
Nagyayaot = Naglalakbay patungo sa isang lugar?
Nagyayaot = Nagdadagsaan? Dumadayo?
UPDATE: “Nagyayaot = nagbibyahe nang pabalik-balik”
(To regularly travel to.)
Do you know what nagyayaot means? Please let us know via the comment area below. Thanks!
Dagison also means “to gather” such as when you gather clothes from a clothesline, or when you put together money or coins. Imagine yourself compressing all those clothes into the space formed by your arms.
Based on this, “dagisunan” in the above passage could refer to “a gathering” or to a place where people squeeze themselves in as tightly as possible so that others may fit in a kalesa or jeepney.
Afterall, there are very few jeepneys going to that place.
Sa Tagalog / Filipino: Maaaring ang dagisunan ay tumutukoy sa mga taong nagsisiksikan sa isang lugar, o kaya’y sa mga taong nag-iipod sa loob ng isang dyip o kalesa, sapagkat madalang nga ang mga dyip duon.
Anyway, I hope this helps you… 🙂
