Uhm @oztony I'll check with my cebuano officemates how they use it here because "Ate" is tagalog. 

It's not derived from auntie because Auntie is english. Tita is tagalog.

This is cebuano-confirmed. Ate is used the same way here in Cebu.

Off - topic?

Tata calls the suitcase  vender she gets candy from occasionally "uncle"  - first time she said "there's uncle" I thought  -  huh?

When we were kids we always referred to the vendors as "uncle" or " ate"

Hey! Kabayan :D:D:D !!!

In Manila, if the vendor is old, we just call them "manong" or "manang." Pero parang mas malambing yung "uncle" :D Mas sweet. Hehe.

Are you from Cebu? Can we create a thread for more bisaya words? I really wanna learn. I just say the basic things but usually I get found out na hindi taga-dito - I don't know baka sa tone or sa grammar. :(
