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 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).
