Rinconada for ghost - molto;
- soul is kalag.

I believe Bikol-Waray for 'soul' and 'ghost' are the same: 'kalag'. 'Asbu', a slang, refers to 'as(u)wang'. 'Multo' is probably adopted from komiks, and the equivalent of 'multuhin' (haunt) is 'kalagon'. I've nevered heard of 'akrat' for 'urinate'. 'Ihi' is common, and 'tir'is' is slang, in the same way that 'kain' is to 'lamon', and 'inom' is to 'laklak'.
