Interestingly, my parents' regional languages of the Philippines have similar words for eat: 'mangan' Ilocano and Cebuano, but it's 'kain' in the lingua franca Tagalog :o

More interestingly, "manger" is "eat" in many Latin languages!

No, it's epal, but I often heard they pronounce it "epel" for that (Might be an informal form)
