Transcript of The Literary works of Region IV

CALABARZON is one of the regions of the Philippines. It is also designated as Region IV-A and its regional capital is Calamba City in Laguna. The region is composed of five provinces, namely: Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, and Quezon. The region's name is an acronym of the names of these provinces.
The area is rich in history. It’s where the Philippines’ independence from Spain was first declared in 1898. It’s the birthplace of national heroes such as Jose Rizal (from Calamba, Laguna), Emilio Aguinaldo (from Kawit, Cavite), Apolinario Mabini (from Tanauan, Batangas) and Miguel Malvar (from Sto.

Is a province in the Philippines located on the southern shores of Manila Bay in the Calabarzon region on Luzon island. Situated just 21 kilometers (13 mi) south of the capital, it is one of the most industrialized and fastest growing provinces because of its close proximity to Metro Manila. With a population of 3,678,301 in 2015, it is the most populated province in the country. For over 300 years, the province has been known as the "Historical Capital of the Philippines" and was the cradle of the Philippine Revolution, the renouncement of Spanish colonial control, which culminated in the Philippine Declaration of Independence on June 12, 1898 in Kawit, Cavite.
The main languages spoken are Tagalog, Chabacano and English. Due to the province's proximity to Metro Manila a large number of people migrated to Cavite from farther provinces, resulting in a significant usage of Bikol, Cebuano and Ilokano.

Batangas, officially known as the Province of Batangas (Filipino: Lalawigan ng Batangas) is a province in the Philippines located in the Calabarzon region in Luzon. Its capital is the city of Batangas and is bordered by the provinces of Cavite and Laguna to the north and Quezon to the east. Across the Verde Island Passages to the south is the island of Mindoro and to the west lies the South China Sea. Poetically, Batangas is often referred to by its ancient name Kumintáng.
The dialect of Tagalog spoken in the province closely resembles the Old Tagalog spoken before the arrival of the Spanish. Hence, the Summer Institute of Linguistics [1] called this province the heartland of the Tagalog language. A strong presence of the Tagalog culture is clearly visible to the present day.

Linguistically, Batangueños are also known for their unique affectation of often placing the particles eh or ga (equivalent to the particle ba in Filipino), usually as a marker of stress on the sentence, at the end of their spoken sentences or speech; for example: "Ay, oo, nga eh!" ("Aye, yes, indeed!"). Some even prolong the particle 'eh' into 'ala eh', though it really has no meaning in itself.

Epikong Tagalog

Ang nuno nating lahat,
Sa ukulog, di nasindak
Sa labanan, di naawat
Pinuhunan ang buhay, hirap
Upang tayong mga anak
Mabuhay ng mapanatag.
Itong ating kabukiran
Sampung bahay at tahanan,
Ibig nilang kuning tunay,
Maagaw sa ating kamay
Tayo baga'y mag asal
Gayong buhay tila patay?
Halina nga at usigin
Ang aliktiya, mga bukirin
At ang mga anak natin.
Tayo naman may patalim,
Dugo't buhay puhunanin.
Aba tayo kung wala na
Ang tirahang maligaya,
Pati anak at asawa
Mananaghoy, magdurusa;
Kaya ngayon, ay tayo na
At ang buhay ay ipara.
