We move on to our fourth Filipino sentence pattern.
We often describe something when we speak.
When we refer to that something by a pronoun (non-personal pronoun),
we have what we call pattern 1D:
|Pattern 1D||Non-personal pronoun||AY adjective|
|It||is not yet ready.|
|Ito||ay hindi pa handa.|
[sentence [subject [nonpersonal-pronoun Itó]] [predicate [predicate-marker ay] [adjective hindī pa
In the pattern definition above:
"Non-personal pronoun" can be replaced by "one or more non-personal pronouns."
"Adjective" can be replaced by "one or more adjectives."
Compare the different patterns:
|1A Personal name||Kiko is not yet ready.|
|1B Personal pronoun||They are not yet ready.|
|1C Non-personal name||My mom is not yet ready.|
|1D Non-personal pronoun||It is ready.|
