About Cebuano, Bisaya or Binisaya

Cebuano is an Austronesian language spoken in the Philippines by about 20 million people. It is the most widely spoken member of the Visayan languages; a language closely related to Bahasa Melayu, Bahasa Indonesia, and other Filipino languages. It has the largest native language speaking population of the Philippines despite not being taught formally in schools and universities. It is the lingua franca of the Central Visayas and Mindanao. Cebuano is given the ISO 639-2 three letter code ceb, but has no ISO 639-1 two-letter code. (from Wikipedia.org)

Cebuano tends to vary a lot depending on where it is spoken. In everyday vernacular, Bisaya is the term used to refer to Cebuano. Whenever a person or a language is called Bisaya, that would immediately refer to Cebuano despite the fact that there are many languages in the Visayas like Visayan, Binisaya, Waray, Hiligaynon and Bol-anon.

Speakers in Mindanao and Luzon refer to the language simply as Bisaya.
