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)
