from the Spanish seguro

*Note that the Spanish word seguro means ‘sure’ but in Tagalog it means ‘maybe’ or ‘perhaps’.

Siguro tinamad siya.
Maybe he/she got lazy.

Siguro ayaw niya ng karne.
Maybe she/he doesn’t like meat.

Siguro umulan.
It probably rained.

Siguro nagalit ang tatay mo.
Your father must have gotten angry.

A native Tagalog word for ‘maybe’ is baka.

The Filipino word for ‘sure’ is sigurado.
