“To have something” in Tagalog: Drills

Welcome back! In this video, we'll practice the pattern to have something in Tagalog.

May susi' ang doktor.The doctor has a key.
Merong kotse ang doktor.The doctor has a car.
Maraming kaibigan ang doktor.The doctor has many friends.
Walang bisikleta ang doktor.The doctor doesn't have a bicycle.

Now with si Jen.

May susi' si Jen.Jen has a key.
Merong kotse si Jen.Jen has a car.
Maraming kaibigan si JenJen has many friends.
Walang bisikleta si Jen.Jen has no bicycle.

And finally with iyon.

May susi' iyon.That (person) has a key. In English you'd use he or she to say this.
Merong kotse iyon.That (person) has a car.
Maraming kaibigan iyon. – That (person) has many friends.
Walang bisikleta iyon.That (person) has no bicycle.

All right. That was it for to have something in Tagalog. It's quite easy, isn't it?

In the next video, we'll talk about the so-called enclitic words, which have a fixed place in the sentence. Thank you for watching.
