Shapes [Mga Hugis] with Chart and Pictures: English To Tagalog Translation

Do you know the Tagalog translations of cone, sphere, parallelogram, trapezoids? Those are basic shapes in which you might not know their Tagalog terms. 

Shape usually refers to the geometric properties of an object. Shape is translated in tagalog as "hugis" (pronounced as hoo-gis). I made a "Shapes Chart" below with Tagalog translation under the English term. This could be very useful for teachers or parents who want to teach their kids about shapes. This could also be very useful for foreigners or non-Filipino speakers who want to learn the Tagalog (Filipino) language about shapes.
In singular form:
  • shape --- hugis
In plural form:
  • shapes --- mga hugis
Note: the term "mga" is pronounced as "ma-nga".
