In the case of object focus verbs in closed and progressive aspects, the infix -infix- often becomes the infix ni- or prefix ni- when the root word begins with /l/, /r/, /w/ or /y/. z.B. Linalapitan or Nilalapitan and Inilagay or ilinagay. Ma- is used with only a few roots that are semantically intransitive, for example matulog (sleep). Ma- should not be confused with the powerful prefix for the forms of verbs triggered by the patient. Gaano (from ka- ana) means how, but is used to ask for the quality of an adjective or an adverb. The root word of the modifier is preceded in this ka- (16a) construction. Ilon means how much (16b). Kumusta is used to learn about what something is. (16 quater) It is often used as a greeting, which means how are you? It is derived from Spanish, it`s?.
Magkano (from mag – gaano) means how much and is usually used to ask for the price of something (16d). Paano (per pa- ana) is used to ask how something is done or happened (16th). Tagalog verbs also have affixe that express grammatical mood; Some examples are indicative, potentially, social and distributed. The affixes can also be used in substantives or adjectives: baligtaran (baligred, vice versa) (reversible), catamaran (tamd, laziness) (laziness), kasabihen (de sabi, to say) (proverb), kasagutan (sagét, response), bayarén (bayad, to pay) (payment), bukirén (de Bukid, farm), lupaén (von lupa, Land), pagkakaroén (von doén/roén, there) (with/look), and pagd`s Verbs containing affixes (usually suffixes) are also used as nouns, which are differentiated according to the voltage position. Examples are panoorins (to see or see) and panoorin (materials to observe or contemplate), hangarin (to wish) and hangarin (destination/destination), araline (to study) and araline (studies), and bayaran (to pay) and Bayarén (someone or something to rent). It is the combination of the root word and an affix. This is the basis of most verbs. Tagalog verbs are morphologically complex and are combined by the adoption of a large number of affixes that reflect focus/trigger, appearance, voice and other categories.
