Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
Jason: In each lesson of this 25 part series, you'll master a common question for Filipino learners, and then learn how to answer it like a native. You'll learn how these key phrases work by breaking them down into each component. Then through repetition and new vocabulary, you'll expand your understanding of the question, its answers, and any variations.

Hi John Kendall,


The question marker in this case is to be placed after Ano. However, it can sound a little strong and towards being rude if you say "Ano ba ang pangalan mo?". In other questions, the word ba can be placed at the end of the sentence without sounding rude. For example, "kumain ka na ba?" Have you eaten? Salamat!

Would the interrogative marker "ba" go anywhere in the phrase "Anong pangalan mo?" Or is it just more colloquial with such a simple question to not use "ba"?


Thank you

Hi Eric!


You're right that mo means your which has a possessive function while you is ikaw or ka in Filipino. Thank you for feedback! We're constantly working on improving the site and we appreciate your help. If you ever have any questions feel free to leave us a comment. Salamat!

Hello,


I have a question about the pronoun 'mo'.

Does 'mo' really mean 'you' or 'your' in English?

In this lesson, 'mo' = 'you'.

I thought 'you' in English is 'ikaw' or 'ka' in Filipino. Is that right?

Learning pronouns is vital to learn a language. Can you tell me what's correct?


Maraming salamat!
