Right after I posted the worksheets on kambal-katinig and diptonggo, I scrambled to check the syllabication of the words with kambal-katinig and to my dismay, I found several mistakes. I have already corrected them and posted the corrected worksheets. If you already downloaded and printed the worksheets with kambal-katinig, please download the new versions. I checked the words using the UP Diksiyonaryong Filipino (Binagong Edisyon, 2010). I replaced the words which did not have a consonant cluster because the consonants are separated when the word is syllabicated. These words and how they are syllabicated in the UP dictionary are listed below: ritrato (rit-ra-to) libre (lib-re) nadiskubre (na-dis-kub-re) sikreto (sik-re-to) reklamo (rek-la-mo) publiko (pub-li-ko) suplado (sup-la-do) padre (pad-re) disiplina (di-sip-li-na) libro (lib-ro) tigre (tig-re) litro (lit-ro) madre (mad-re) So the words above are not considered to have a consonant cluster or kambal-katinig. I apologize for my mistake.
