Petmalu! Vico Sotto traces lodi-speak to the French
Who knew that the current trend is actually a global thing? This politiko does.
Pasig Councilor Vico Sotto shared a little trivia to his Facebook followers, and it’s guaranteed to shock you.
The millennial politiko said the returning trend of switching syllables such as “lodi” (idol), “werpa” (power), and “petmalu” (malupet) is not unique to Filipinos. He shares that there’s such a thing among the French which they call the “verlan” or slang.
They do it, too. How cool is that, mga orb?
