    Word for word translation:

    May - maari (also puwede/pwede but this word is borrowed from Spanish)

    I - used here as "ko"

    speak - (root word "usap") makausap

    to - used here as "si"

    Mary Ann - Mary Ann

    please - pakiusap

    "Po" is added/used as a sign of respect

    This is the deep Tagalog translation"

    Pakiusap po, maari po bang makausap ko si Mary Ann?

    Please note that in translating English sentence to Tagalog/Filipino, the order of words is sometimes re-arranged, as in the above.

    Maybe it is when you consider that we have a tendency to partner the English phrases we use with its exact English spelling, accordingly when you consider that it as Taglish as a substitute of Tagalog. Also, Spanish loanwords have been reward in our language for a long time that it finally tailored itself into the language.
