What is Compunction in Tagalog?

COMPUNCTION IN TAGALOG – There are several English words that do not have a direct translation in Filipino, that’s why we need context to fully translate them.


In this article, we are going to learn about the Tagalog translation of this word based on context.

Compunction means a feeling of deep regret, usually for some misdeed. In other words, it means a feeling of guilt or moral scruple that prevents or follows the doing of something bad.

In Tagalog, it can be translated as “PAGSISISI.”

Here are some example sentences using this word:

  • Helen divorced her husband because he never seemed to feel any compunction about lying to her.
  • Even though Roger was on a strict diet, he felt little compunction after eating three donuts.

In Tagalog, the aforementioned sentences could be translated as:

  • Tila walang pagsisisi si Mark habang sinasagot ang mga alegasyon tungkol sa kanya.
  • Ninakaw niya ang pera nang walang kaunting pagsisisi.
  • Ang serial killer ay hindi nagpakita ng pagsisisi nang ipahayag ang hatol sa kanya.
