Linguistics Professor at the Mindanao State University-Iligan Institute of Technology (MSU-IIT), Dr. Luvizminda Cagas de la Cruz, says “pinakurat” is an affixation of the Sebuano (correct spelling instead of “Cebuano” according to language scholars) root word “kurat.” “Kurat,” according to De la Cruz, means surprise. Thus, “pinakurat” means in a sudden or surprising manner as to shock the person.
