Cebuano is an Austronesian language spoken in the Philippines by about 20 million people. It is the most widely spoken member of the Visayan languages.
Cebuano is spoken natively by the inhabitants of Cebu, Bohol, Negros Oriental, western parts of Leyte, some parts of Samar, Biliran islands, southern region of Masbate island, and some parts of Mindanao.
Some dialects of Cebuano give different names to the language. Native people from Bohol may refer to
Cebuano as Bol-anon while Cebuano-speakers in Leyte may call their dialect Kana. Speakers in Mindanao and Metro Manila refer to the language simply as Bisaya.
