Question by fox: In tagalog, what is the literal translation to the phrase “ligawan mo”?
I know it means to court, to woo a girl. However I do not know, if any, there is a literal translation. Like, what am I actually saying to her. If there is no translation, when in certain situations, would i use it for?

The English translation for “ligawan mo” is “court her” or “you court her”. It’s a command actually, telling you to court her.

E.g.

“LIGAWAN MO na siya ngayon! Kung ‘di, ako liligaw sa kanya.”

“You court her now! If you don’t, I’m the one who’ll court her.”
