Mga Pinakakaraniwang Salita sa Filipino

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.

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. Click on the link below to open the pdf file.
