Hi. I'm here to cite a certain thing that I discovered. I learned that the name of the Grunts in Covenant language is "unggoy". I'm a Filipino, and in our Tagalog dialect, that literally means, well, monkey. Now, I'm wondering, is this on purpose (which means that Bungie is calling the Grunts "stupid monkeys", and also means that Bungie is familiar with the Filipino language) or is this by mere coincidence?
