How would you describe in Filipino, the symptoms of the flu?

Hi David,


Thank you for your comment, David. We're looking to constantly improve the website. You're right that "may" in Filipino means mayroon or there is. Salamat!

The only problem i have with this lesson is your definition of "may" as "expressing chance, possibility or permission". After getting confused about how this relates to "i have a fever", I checked with a Filipino and they said no, may means "have", which makes a lot more sense in this context!

Hi Dana,


"Barado ang ilong ko" describes how the nose is clogged while "may sipon ang ilong ko" just means that you have a cold/mucous. Salamat!

For โ€œBarado ang ilong koโ€ can it be also said as โ€œMay sipon sa ilong koโ€?

Hi Tracy!


Good question. The noun for vomit is suka while the verb form is magsuka.

If you've been vomiting, you can say "nagsusuka ako"


Salamat!

Hi Richard,


You could say, "may masakit sa akin".


Salamat!

Kamusta Princess!


In this case, you can't say "may nagtatae ako" since you're already pertaining to yourself. However, you can say "may nagtatae" to mean that there's someone who has diarrhea.


Salamat!

Can you also say: 'May nagtatae ako?' instead of 'Nagtatae ako?'
