We move on to our second Filipino sentence pattern.
We often describe somebody when we speak.
When that somebody is a noun,
but not the name of a person (non-personal name),
we have what we call pattern 1C:
|Pattern 1C||Non-personal name||AY adjective|
|My brother||is not yet ready.|
|Ang aking kapatid||ay hindi pa handa.|
In the pattern definition above:
"Non-personal name" can be replaced by "one or more non-personal names."
"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.|
