The three worksheets posted below practice the student’s skill in identifying the degree of comparison of a Filipino adjective (kaantasan ng pang-uri). The three degrees of comparison of Filipino adjectives are lantay (positive degree), pahambing (comparative degree), and pasukdol (superlative degree).
The two 15-item worksheets below ask the student to tell whether the underlined verb in the sentence is a transitive verb (pandiwang palipat) or intransitive verb (pandiwang katawanin).
Transitive verbs have direct objects (tuwirang layon) that receive the action. The action (expressed by the verb) is being done to the object. The meaning of the verb is incomplete without the direct object. The direct object usually comes after the verb.
Si Tatay ay umiinom ng mainit na kape.
In the above sentence, the direct object of the verb umiinom (drinking) is the noun kape (coffee). Note that adjectives can come before the noun. The noun (kape) answers the question “Umiinom ng ano?”
Intransitive verbs do not have direct objects. In Filipino sentences, prepositional phrases or adverbs (pang-abay) are sometimes written after or before the intransitive verb. If the phrase tells when, how, or where the action takes place, then the verb is intransitive (pandiwang katawanin).
Si Tatay ay maingat na umiinom.
In this sentence, the verb umiinom has no direct object. Therefore, the verb is an intransitive verb (pandiwang katawanin). The word maingat tells how the action is done.
Siya ay umiinom tuwing umaga.
Siya ay umiinom sa balkonahe.
In the two sentences above, the verb umiinom has no direct object. Therefore, it is an intransitive verb. The phrase tuwing umaga tells when the action is done, and the phrase sa balkonahe tells where the action is done. The drinking action is not being done to the umaga or balkonahe.

The worksheets posted here help practice the student’s skills in identifying the grammatical tense of Filipino verbs (panauhan o aspekto ng pandiwa), classifying verbs according to their grammatical tenses, and conjugating Filipino verbs (pagbabanghay ng pandiwa).
Students in the early grades are introduced to the three grammatical tenses of Filipino verbs:
- panahunang pangnagdaan/aspektong naganap/aspektong perpektibo (past tense)
- panahunang pangkasalukuyan/aspektong nagaganap/aspektong imperpektibo (present tense)
- panahunang panghinaharanap/aspektong gaganapin pa lamang/aspektong kontemplatibo (future tense)
In sixth grade, students are introduced to another grammatical tense which is the panahunang katatapos or aspektong katatapos. Verbs in this grammatical tense imply that the action was just done or completed. The prefix (unlapi) ka- is added to the root word and the first syllable (or first two letters) of the root word is repeated. Examples of verbs in this grammatical tense are listed below.
- kasasalita (just spoke)
- kagagaling (just came from)
- kaiinom (just drank)
- kaaalis (just left)
- kasasakay (just rode)
A verb has the aspektong neutral when it is formed by combining the root word with an affix (panlapi). If the verb is expressed as a command (pautos), then it has the aspektong neutral. Examples are itago, matulog, kunin, ilagay, magbayad, hugasan, umpisahan, gayahin, etc.
Infinitive verbs (mga pandiwang pawatas) have no reference to a particular grammatical tense, person, or subject. Filipino infinitive verbs look like verbs having the aspektong neutral. They are not conjugated to communicate a tense and they usually look like verbs that express a command.
English infinitive verbs are usually formed by adding the word “to” before the verb (e.g., to see, to believe, to swim, etc.).
The sentences below show some examples of Filipino infinitive verbs. Note that the infinitive verb (in bold) does not suggest or communicate a tense (past, present, or future). Some infinitive verbs may suggest a tense that is kahit kailan or palagi.
- Bawal magtapon ng basura sa mga ilog.
- Malimit dumaan dito ang trak ng basurero.
- Sila ay desididong tapusin ang karera.
- Hindi ko sinasadyang saktan ka.
- Inutusan ako na ibigay sa iyo ang liham.

I would like to send my sincerest apologies to all the followers and users of this blog for not being able to post new worksheets since Typhoon Glenda hit. We experienced a long power outage, a computer breakdown, and trouble with our internet service provider. Since we’ve recently acquired the service of a new ISP, the posting of new worksheets will resume soon.
Thank you very much for all your comments. I am sorry I was not able to reply to all of them, but know that I appreciate them.
The two 20-item pdf worksheets below ask the student to identify the grammatical person (panauhan: una, ikalawa, o ikatlo) and grammatical number (kailanan: isahan, dalawahan, o maramihan) of the underlined personal pronoun in each sentence. The third page of each file is the answer key.
The 20-item pdf worksheet below asks the student to tell whether the underlined word in the sentence is a possessive pronoun (panghalip na paari) o a modifier (panuring). The second page of the file is the answer key.
Modifiers that show ownership of something are called possessive adjectives. The panuring (modifier or possessive adjective) come before or after the noun it modifies. Possessive adjectives are adjectives, not pronouns.
Ang kanyang sapatos ay bago. (panuring kanya modifies sapatos)
Ang sapatos niya ay bago. (panuring niya modifies sapatos)
Ang sapatos na bago ay kanya. (panghalip na paari)
Kanya ang sapatos na bago. (panghalip na paari)
Below is a list of panghalip na paari (possessive pronouns).
- akin (mine)
- iyo (yours)
- kanya (his/hers)
- kanita (mine and yours)
- atin (ours)
- amin (ours)
- inyo (yours)
- kanila (theirs)
Below is a list of panuring (modifier/possessive adjective). The blank signifies where the noun is placed.
- aking _____ (my _____ )
- iyong _____ (your _____ )
- kanyang _____ (his/her _____ )
- ating _____ (our _____ )
- aming _____ (our _____ )
- inyong _____ (your _____ )
- kanilang _____ (their _____ )
- _____ ko (my _____ )
- _____ mo (your _____ )
- _____ niya (his/her _____ )
- _____ natin (our _____ )
- _____ namin (our _____ )
- _____ ninyo (your _____ )
- _____ nila (their _____ )

There are two main types of nouns, proper nouns (pangngalang pantangi) and common nouns (pangngalang pambalana). Common nouns may be classified further as concrete nouns (pangngalang tahas o kongkreto), abstract nouns (pangngalang basal o di-kongkreto), or collective nouns (pangngalang palansak o lansakan).
Mga Pangngalang Palansak : This is a list of Filipino collective nouns.
Uri ng Pangngalan: This 15-item worksheet asks the student to classify the underlined noun in the sentence as pantangi (proper) or pambalana (common). If the noun is a common noun, the student is asked to classify it as tahas, basal, or lansakan. The second page is the answer key.
