Baganga, as part of Davao Oriental, uses the Southern Kamayo dialect. The Southern Kamayo is quite different from the Kamayo Dialect of Bislig, Surigao Del Sur. Southern Kamayo is also spoken in Southern Lingig, Surigao del Sur, in Cateel, Caraga and some parts of Davao Oriental. It is also related to Surigaonon and Butuanon. Dialect variations are caused by mixed dialect communications between the Mandaya, Cebuano and other immigrants now living in the area. A prefix is added in most adjectives. Example: The word gamay in Cebuano (English: small) is gamayay in Baganga. But you can't use the "ay" prefix often, like for instance the word dako (English; big) is spoken as "bagas-AY" or "bagasay" instead of saying "dako-ay". dutayay (English very small)
