Lesson 90: 3D:


We often say something happens to something.
When that something is a pronoun (non-personal pronoun),
we have what we call pattern 3D.

Pattern 3DNon-personal pronounAY object-focus verb
Thatwas bought by me at the market.
Iyanay binili ko sa palengke.


In the pattern definition above:
"Non-personal pronoun" can be replaced by "one or more non-personal pronouns."
"Object-focus verb" can be replaced by "one or more object-focus verbs."

Compare the different patterns:
3A Personal nameCharina was given a gift.
3B Personal pronounWe were not given gifts.
3C Non-personal nameMother was given the gift of music.
3D Non-personal pronounIt was given many gifts.
