|English to Tagalog translations [PRO]|
|English term or phrase: several automotive terms|
|These are common parts of automobile (in English). I would like to get their closest equivalents in Tagalog. Sorry, they are quite many, but many thanks for your help.|
accelerator pedal/brake/clutch/headlight/taillight/windshield wiper/gear shifter/steering wheel/horn
|Tagalog translation:auto stuff|
I'll be glad to give you the Tagalog translations for these auto terms:
accelerator pedal = "silinyador"
brake = "preno"
clutch = "klats" or "clutch"
headlight = "headlight"
tail-light = "tail-light"
windshield wiper = "wiper"
gear shifter = "kambyo" (if you are pertaining to the transmission stick shifter)
steering wheel = "manibela"
horn = "busina"
It's interesting that Filipinos have quite a good colorful history with automobiles and the man-on-the-street carries in his head what I consider to be "above-average" aptitude (at least--curiosity; at most--passion) for those things on wheels...that's why Tagalog has been able to give its own words to these technological concepts that are of course introduced from abroad...
I myself am an avid car afficionado...it just that I don't have the money to hoard up on fancy car stuff :)
