anáno pa, Quite frequently this means: (and) as is (was) to be expected, naturally, consequently, of course, as a matter of course. Hubúg siá kag madánlug ang dálan, anáno pa nakadúpyas siá kag nahúlug sa pángpang sang subâ. He was drunk and the road slippery; consequently he slipped and fell down the bank of the river.
