Origins of the Chabacano Siguiditos

The word siguiditos is a curious word. It most probably came from Spanish but it is nowhere present in the Spanish language.We definitely know that it comes from the Spanish seguir.

This word is not incorporated in the dictionary of Camins. It is however found in the 2010 dictionary of Rolando Arquiza Santos. Santos defines the word as 'one after the other' or 'successively'. At times though, this word is also used as an adverb to mean 'continuous' by certain people (namely ME).

Here now are some sample sentences using this word:

Chabacano: Siguiditos ya morri el mio dos perro
English: My two dogs died successively

Chabacano: Siguiditos ya rebenta el mga bomba
English: The bombs exploded one after the other
