I was working on a new series for beginning readers of Filipino when I got the idea of making a list of common Filipino words. I did a quick internet search and found some sites which showed several lists of Filipino sight words as well as common Filipino words. The result of my search is the 4-page PDF file below with a list of more than 800 common Filipino words, including Filipino sight words, which I’ve compiled.
The words are arranged according to the number of letters in the word. For each group, the words are arranged alphabetically (according to the Filipino alphabet). The words are not arranged according to the parts of speech. Words with two or more syllables are syllabicated and the syllabicated words are in parentheses. See the image of the first page below.
Teachers and parents can use this list as a basis for making vocabulary word lists (in Filipino) for students up to Grades 3 or 4.
