Mga Bahagi ng Katawan (NEW)

(New 2019 update at the end of this post.) I recently purchased a clip art set from one of my favorite illustrators and I couldn't wait to create teaching sheets using the cute clip art images. The illustrations are by Kari Bolt. Check out her store on Teachers Pay Teachers. https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Kari-Bolt-Clip-Art The PDF file below has teaching sheets for the parts of the body. The front and back parts of the body are labeled. The labels are in Filipino. There is a girl version and a boy version of the lesson sheets. The parts of the face, arms, hands, and legs are also included. I also made a version where I placed the English translations under the Filipino labels. Click on the links below, not the screenshots of the file, to open each PDF file in another tab. These PDF files available for free, so the least you can do…

Mga Propesyon at Tungkulin sa Filipino

I started making a list of Filipino nouns with the common gender and I ended up making a long list of occupations and common roles and responsibilities. The Filipino nouns in this list have the common gender. They may be used to refer to either a male/man or female/woman. Below is the link to a six-page PDF file entitled "Mga Propesyon at Tungkulin." It has a list of professions categorized according to following fields: Community helpers (Examples: basurero, dentista, guwardiya, karpintero) Common roles and responsibilities (Examples: bisita, kaibigan, kamag-aral, pasahero) Family and relatives (Examples: anak, asawa, kapatid, manugang) Business (Examples: akawntant, bangkero, ingat-yaman, negosyante) Politics and law (Examples: abogado, alkalde, kongresista, senador) Military and security (Examples: heneral, hepe, koronel, sarhento) Education (Examples: dekano, guro, prinsipal, propesor, tutor) Health care (Examples: beterinaryo, manggagamot, maninistis, obstetra) Science (Examples: antropologo, heograpo, kimiko, pisiko) Journalism and publishing (Examples: kolumnista, makata, mananaliksik, patnugot) Religion (Examples:…

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…

Mga Salitang Inuulit (New list)

I revised some of the content and added more words to my list of Filipino repeated words (mga salitang inuulit). I incorporated the changes put forth by the Komisyon ng Wikang Filipino in their 2014 Ortograpiyang Pambansa. Some Filipino words are formed by repeating a root word or base word. The new word obtained from such repetition or duplication would have a meaning different from that of the base word. Examples of such words are araw-araw, sabi-sabi, punit-punit, and pantay-pantay. There are a few rules when repeating or duplicating Filipino words and these rules are included in the discussion. Several examples and their English definitions are provided for each rule. The PDF file below has six pages. Click on the link below, not the image, to open the file in another tab. Mga Salitang Inuulit (2016) This PDF file is for personal and classroom use only. You may print and…
