Extant in Tagalog – English to Tagalog Translation

What is Extant in Tagalog?

EXTANT 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.

Extant means still in existence; not extinct or destroyed or lost.

In Tagalog, it can be translated as “NABUBUHAY PA.”

Here are some example sentences using this word:

  • One of the oldest buildings that can be found in the suburb is still extant.

  • The researcher was surprised to learn that the species he thought was extinct was only extant and living solely in a tiny country.
  • The oldest extant document is dated 1492.

In Tagalog, the aforementioned sentences could be translated as:
