Food I - meat and fish

English / Indonesian / Tagalog / Hawaiian

beef / (daging) sapi / karnéng-baka / 'i'o pipi
goat / (daging) kambing / karnéng-kambing / 'i'o kao
pork / (daging) babi / karnéng-baboy / 'i'o pua'a
*daging/karnéng/'i'o = meat (of)

chicken / ayam / manók / 'i'o moa
fish / ikan / isdâ / i'a

Hawaiian pipi is a very bad attempt to say "beef." So says Schütz' in All About Hawaiian (U of Hawai'i P, 1995).

Tagalog baka is doubtless from Spanish vaca, cow.

Tagalog karné is from Spanish carne, meat.
