    May nakapag-imbestiga na baga kung bakit karamihan sa lugar sa Aurora ay nagsisimula sa Di?

    oscar: most places in aurora and the adjoining towns in isabela were named by the Dumagat’s. “Di” is a prefix they attach to words to mean “where there is” or “there is plenty of”. Example is Dilasag. “lasag” is a Dumagat term for meat. So “dilasag” supposedly meant “where there is plenty of meat”. The problem is most of the words where the prefix “di” is attached to are not clear to us Tagalogs. So the meaning is lost in the names. Maybe someone should try to look for Dumagats who still use their native dialect and try to unravel the mysteries of our Di-places. I would like to know what Dimadimalangat or Dicasalarin means.
