Aligning "likes"
Pareho...we have an adjective denoting high similarity to really identical
Parang...we have an adverb as like...that I most often hear as "like you"
Tulad...we have a noun again noting highly similar but with suggestion of imitation...and again hear "tulad mo" as "like you"
And maybe even ganito/ganyan/ganoon could be used to express a "like that" comparison.
Any others? I try to learn overlapping / related concepts together.
Any insights would be appreciated. Salamat

Yes, "pareho" is used to mean "the same" or "almost the same".
"Parang" means "similar to" or "somewhat like".
"Katulad/Tulad" is used when comparing similarities and often used in metaphors.
"Ganito/ganyan/ganoon" are demonstrative words. "Ganito/ganyan/ganoon dapat ang gagawin mo" = What you should do is like this/that/that.

because lesson 11, making comparisons, is chocked full of such concepts.
