Mga Hanapbuhay (New version)

Last year I made a booklet showing different occupations in Filipino. Each occupation had a short description. I have reworked that booklet and created three PDF files with one occupation per page. I also changed some text and added clip art of tools or things used by each person in his or her job.

The files provide reading practice for young students. These may also be used to introduce the lesson on community helpers (mga katulong sa pamayanan) or occupations. The tools shown may also act as springboards for discussions about each occupation.

The files include the following occupations:

  1. magsasaka (farmer)
  2. mangingisda (fisherman)
  3. guro (teacher)
  4. kawani (employee; assistant)
  5. pulis (police officer)
  6. bombero (firefighter)
  7. doktor (doctor)
  8. nars (nurse)
  9. tsuper (driver)
  10. karpintero (carpenter)
  11. manggagawa sa pabrika (factory worker)
  12. tindera (seller)
  13. beterinaryo (veterinarian)
  14. dentista (dentist)
  15. basurero (garbage collector)
  16. dyanitor (janitor)
  17. kartero (mail carrier/postal carrier)
  18. trabahador (worker/laborer)
  19. modista (seamstress/dressmaker)
  20. tagapagluto (cook)
  21. manunulat (writer)
  22. marinero (mariner/sailor)

Below is a screenshot of the first two occupations.

Kasarian ng mga Pangngalan

A couple of years ago I posted a list of common nouns and categorized them according to gender. Upon reviewing that list, I realized that some entries were incorrect for reasons which I will explain in this post. I have revised that list, added more entries, and categorized quite a lot of them. The link to the revised list (a PDF file) is provided below.

A Filipino noun (pangngalan) may be categorized according the natural gender (male or female/lalaki o babae), the uncertainty of gender (male or female), or the lack of gender (nouns for nonliving things or concepts) of the person, animal, object, or idea the noun is pertaining to.

A Filipino noun may be classified as having one of the four genders: masculine gender (panlalaki), feminine gender (pambabae), common gender (pambalaki o di-tiyak), or neuter gender (walang kasarian).

Nouns with masculine gender are used for male persons and animals such as the nouns father/ama and rooster/tandang. Nouns with feminine gender are used for female persons and animals such as the nouns mother/ina and hen/inahin. Nouns with common gender are used for either male or female persons and animals such as the nouns parent/magulang and chicken/manok.

Nouns with masculine, feminine, and common genders are used for people and animals. The nouns with neuter gender are used for nonliving things, living things that are not classified as either male or female (such as trees and plants), and abstract nouns. The Filipino nouns puno, kahoy, bulaklak, and kalikasan are examples of nouns with neuter gender.

Some nouns with masculine gender are paired with their corresponding nouns with feminine gender. A tabular list of such Filipino noun pairs is provided in the PDF file below entitled “Kasarian ng mga Pangngalan sa Filipino.” Several of these Filipino noun pairs originated from the Spanish language.

Note that the noun pairs in this table are gender-specific. This means that Filipino nouns under the column heading “Pangngalang panlalaki” may only be used to refer to male persons (or animals) and those under the column heading “Pangngalang pambabae” may only be used to refer to female persons (or animals).

Filipino nouns such as doktor, senador, alkalde, and arsobispo have common gender; they may be used to refer to either men or women who hold these positions. (There are women in other parts of the world who hold religious occupations such as ministers, bishops, and priests.) So I have classified such nouns under the category pangngalang pambalaki or nouns with common gender.

In my previous list I incorrectly categorized the Filipino nouns arsobispo, obispo, pari and other religious occupations under nouns with masculine gender. Filipino nouns like empleyado, propesor, and eredero were similarly categorized incorrectly under pangngalang panlalaki. These nouns actually have the common gender.

The Filipino nouns doktora, senadora, alkaldesa, empleyada, propesora, and eredera have feminine gender. These nouns are gender-specific; they refer to women (not men) who hold these positions.

Nouns with the neuter gender are nouns used for living and nonliving things that may not be classified as either male or female. Nouns that refer to places and inanimate objects, as well as abstract nouns, have the neuter gender.

The PDF file below has 5 pages. It includes the following:

  1. the discussion on the gender of nouns in Filipino;
  2. a table with the Filipino noun pairs (masculine and feminine) and their English translations;
  3. a list of Filipino nouns with the masculine gender and their English translations; and
  4. a list of Filipino nouns with the feminine gender and their English translations.

Mga Uri ng Pang-uri

One of the readers of my blog requested for more worksheets for students in Grades 7 and 8. The topic I chose for this blog post is on the different types of Filipino adjectives (mga uri ng pang-uri). This topic also appears in some Grade 6 Filipino textbooks.

Adjectives or adjective phrases are used to describe nouns (pangngalan) or pronouns (panghalip) in a sentence. An adverb (pang-abay) describes or modifies a verb, an adjective, or another adverb. If the word describes a verb, then it is not an adjective; it is an adverb. To make sure that a word is used as an adjective or adverb, it is useful to first identify the word in the sentence that it is describing.

The first PDF file below discusses the three main types of Filipino adjectives which are pang-uring panlarawan (descriptive adjective), pang-uring pantangi (proper adjective), and pang-uring pamilang (numeral adjective). There are also six types of pang-uring pamilang described here. A gave a few examples for each type.

I’d like to stress that I am not Filipino teacher and the discussion I made is based on my own research and interpretation. If you find any errors in my discussion, please feel free to leave a comment so I can correct them.

Mga Uri ng Pang-uri

The second PDF file below is a worksheet on the same topic. The student is asked to classify the adjective (in bold) in each sentence as panlarawan, pantangi, or pamilang. For the numeral adjectives, the students may be asked to classify each as one of the six types of pang-uring pamilang.

Mga Nakikita sa Paaralan

Below is the link to a 7-page PDF file that teaches the Filipino names for people and objects that can be seen in a school classroom. There are three lesson sheets and four pages that can be made into a mini-booklet. For the mini-booklet, the pages can be cut and stapled together.

Two words not commonly used but included here is the Filipino word for notebook which is kuwaderno (although my beloved high school teacher in Filipino would always say “Ilabas ang kuwaderno!”), and the word for watercolor which is akwarela.

Some of the clip art images were obtained from www.openclipart.org. The other images were illustrated and are owned by samutsamot_mom.
