Mga Basal na Salitang Morong

The home language of the people is distinctive in its intonation and the interchanging use of d's and r's which makes it different from the tagalog -speaking towns and provinces.These uniqueness and peculiarities may rightfully be called the trademark of a full blooded Morong folks.
A true Morongueno speaks slowly with a peculiar intonation of prolonged syllables especially near the end of every sentence. This inflection, the low tone and the almost slluring way of speaking the word, it is more pronounced among the barrio people.
