Popular corrections

These corrections got a lot of 'native nods' recently. ('Public' entries only.)

  • (This is my bag using aking) Aking bag ito.
  • (This is my bag using aking) Ito ang aking bag.
  • Normally, though, one would just say "Akin ito", or "ito ang akin" pointing to the bag. "Ito ang aking bag" sounds overly formal, like a student about to make a thorough presentation in his school about his bag. "This is my bag. I use it everyday. It is blue.." The difference between "Akin ito" and "Ito ang akin" is emphasis. You say "Akin ito" when you want to say that the bag is yours, and not anyone else's. You say "Ito ang akin" when you want to identify which in a group of bags is yours.
