Default Deep Filipino (Tagalog) Words

There are still some Filipino (Tagalog) words that are deep or too formal for the ears to hear that we still use.

e.g.

day to day use:
anong ibig mong sabihin? What do you mean?

the word ibig also means -love, want, like

iniibig kita - we say it nowadays as mahal kita or i love you
iyan ang aking ibig -now we say it as yan ang gusto ko or that's what i want

what are other deep Filipino (Tagalog) words do you think are still in use?
