After spending some time in the province of Sorsogon, one of 6 in the Bicol Region in the Philippines, I’ve grown a fondness for the language. Particularly because of its complexity; the Bikolano dialect is broken down to 4 sub-dialects (Northern, Southern, Northern Catanduanes, Inagta-Rinconada). To digress, the Province of Sorsogon is home to 4 languages, distinguished either by one of the Bikol region languages (divided further into 2 subgroups) or Central Visayan.
(Edited, 22 Oct): What makes Sorsoganon language particularly complex is a matter of geography. Sorsogon, on the southermost tip of Luzon, is where the cultures of Bicol and Visayas intersect. The tongue is, indeed, Bikolano, but possesses the most Visayan words in all of the provinces outside the Visayan region next to Masbate.
And because Bikolanos (and Sorsoganons) proudly eat, think, talk, breathe food on clockwork, it is only apt that their riddles would be mostly about food.
