Paniqui

Tarlac

Paniqui is a first class urban municipality in the province of Tarlac, Philippines. According to the 2010 census, it has a population of 87,730 people.


Geographically, Paniqui is situated between the towns of Gerona in the south and Moncada in the north.


Paniqui is a Hispanized term derived from the Pangasinan word "paniki" which means "bat" and it is obvious that it cam ...

e from Pangasinan Language because of fast pronunciation. The town has a feature of caves that house a population of bats. It is the birthplace of former President Corazon C. Aquino.


Paniqui was originally part of the province of Pangasinan.


The language predominantly spoken by locals is Ilokano, but Tagalog (as with most towns and cities in Luzon) is also used frequently; however, where the older generation will use Ilokano to converse with each other, Tagalog is being used more and more by the younger generation. This is perhaps due to the influence of education, migration (especially to find work), television and mobile communications (especially the use of texting and social networking), which is extending the reach of previously localised peer groups.
