Waray-Waray or Samarnon is spoken in the provinces of Leyte (north & east), Samar, and Biliran in the Philippines.
Waray-Waray is a distinct language from other Visayan languages and is not related to Cebuano but is considered a close dialect of Hiligaynon (Ilonggo) and Masbatenyo. It is a more harsh sounding language than Cebuano or Tagalog. Approximately 3.1 million people (4.6% of the population) speak Waray-Waray.
See the Visayan Map for languages spoken in the Visaya region of the Philippines.
