Rule 5 If a singular and a plural subject are bound by either or one or not/nor, place the plural subject at the last minute and use a plural verb. In the example (5), the verb “binihag” (attached) is marked for the active voice and leads the actor (“Kuya Louis”) to accept the nominative case. Example (5) is not consistent with the principles (i) and (ii). That is to say that the principle (i) requires the actor (“Kuya Louis”) first all other arguments. But since the actor also accepts the nominative case, the principle (ii) calls for the phrase “Kuya Louis” last. The preferred order of agents and patients in Tagalog`s active clauses is still under discussion. Therefore, we can assume that there are two strings of “unmarked” words: VSO or VOS. Rule 3 If I am one of the two subjects that are bound by one or the other, place them in second place and follow it with the singular verb. The affixes can also be used in substantives or adjectives: baligtaran (baligred, vice versa) (reversible), catamaran (tamd, laziness) (laziness), kasabihen (de sabi, to say) (proverb), kasagutan (sagét, response), bayarén (bayad, to pay) (payment), bukirén (de Bukid, farm), lupaén (von lupa, Land), pagkakaroén (von doén/roén, there) (with/look), and pagd`s Verbs containing affixes (usually suffixes) are also used as nouns, which are differentiated according to the voltage position. Examples are panoorins (to see or see) and panoorin (materials to observe or contemplate), hangarin (to wish) and hangarin (destination/destination), araline (to study) and araline (studies), and bayaran (to pay) and Bayarén (someone or something to rent). Rule 13 Use a single verb with money or periods of money.

However, the rules of agreement apply to the following helping verbs when used with a main protocol: is-are, were-were, has-have, do-do-do. The double pronoun included kata/Kita has largely disappeared from the Manila dialect. It has survived in other Tagalog dialects, especially those that have spoken in rural areas. However, kita is used to replace the pronoun sequence [verb] ko ikaw (I [verb] it). As mentioned earlier, the pronoun sequence ko ikéw, (I [verb] you) can be replaced by Kita. Rule 9 With words that indicate parts (percent, break, part, majority, some, all, none, none, etc. – see the name in your expression (preposition object) to determine whether a singular or plural verb should be used. If the object of the preposition is singular, use a singular verb. If the object of the preposition is plural, use a plural verb. The rules of agreement do not apply to assets when they are used as a useful second verb in a couple.

NOTE: The trick is whether the subject is singular or plural. The next trick is the recognition of a singular or plural verb. I have people around me that I simply can`t afford to confront directly with their glaring SVA problems, without risking some degradation of friendship, or being accused of being a grammar font (as I am mean and disrespectful). You know how “balat sibuyas” are most Filipinos. I hope that they would only stumble on this anonymous article and shine in them this proverbial light bulb, which would save me from having to listen and read English regularly wrongly. Rule 7 Sometimes the subject is separated by words as with, as well as, as well as, as well as, or not. Ignore these expressions when determining whether a singular or plural verb should be used. The reciprocal trigger refers to the action taken by the subjects at the same time.
