The word ‘Say’ has received a negative reputation over the years as a pejorative term. It is also often used to denigrate people. In recent years, the word has been used to describe Filipino immigrants in the United States and in some Filipino-language television programs.

Another usage of the word is in the popular television show Pinoy Big Brother, the Philippines’ version of American Idol. In this case, ‘Say’ is used to refer to either a man or a woman.
Former President Ferdinand Marcos Sr. died in 1989. His widow, Imelda, and son, Bongbong, became estate administrators. The estate owed the government 23 billion pesos, or $445 million.

The taxes and penalties would have ballooned to $3.9 billion if not for the Marcoses’ failure to pay up.
