Lesson 55: NG-case


The second of three cases of nouns and pronouns
in Filipino is the NG-case.

Here we learn the first of three uses of the NG-case.

Nouns and pronouns in the NG-case
serve to express ownership of something.

In the following sentences, the phrases in boldface
are expressed in the NG-case in Filipino:

I am reading Miguel's book.
She spent the town's money.
Who used my computer?
Its capacity exceeds 2,000 kilos.


Later, when we learn about actor-focus verbs,
we will see that we also use the NG-case
to express the direct object of an actor-focus verb's action.

When we learn about object-focus verbs,
we will see that we also use the NG-case
to express the doer of an object-focus verb's action.
