Mga Karaniwang Salita sa Filipino (Part 1)

If you have a preschooler or teach preschoolers, you may have heard of the term “sight words.” Sight words refer to the set of words most frequently used and repeated. Sight words are important in teaching children to read. Children have to learn to quickly recognize and read them on sight. The list of sight words in English can easily be found and downloaded from the Internet.

I wanted to make a similar list of Filipino sight words. I started with the commonly used short words (1 to 3-letter Filipino words) and included their variants. I also listed the common Filipino pronouns (panghalip) and their variants. Then the common Filipino adverbs (pang-abay) and conjunctions (pangatnig) came next.

I also made a list of common Filipino adjectives (pang-uri) and verbs (pandiwa). For many of the adjectives, I matched the opposites. For the list of verbs, the root word is in bold and the most common form of the verb follows the root word. Click on the link below to open the pdf file.

The lists I created include most of the Dolch sight words. They are not based on any survey or study I made, but they are based on my personal experience with Filipino literature for children. You may use them to check your student’s (or child’s) vocabulary or familiarity with common Filipino words.

I will post a list of common Filipino nouns soon.
