Here’s an excerpt from the author’s foreword or preamble of his Capampangan language discovery: “I cannot mention all the findings I discovered, they are too many. They are well-explained and manifested in the book.

Personally, I think the Capampangan language will survive for centuries more. With all the foreigners that came and passed into our country, the Philippines, we have adopted new words from them; we culturalized these words into our language, but these new words only increase our vocabulary but never did affect the basic structure of the language. Capampangan is still Capampangan, as a language. Maybe a few new words were added to increase our vocabulary, I personally believe Capampangan will still be around long after we passed through this beautiful country, I do recognize some Capampangan today who are presently concerned that we might lose the language in the near future. Therefore, let us help and find ways to make the younger generation to be more interested in the language.”
