Speaking Cebuano 2nd Lesson (Verb-Subject Agreement)

In this lesson we will tackle what the sentence structure of Cebuano is. As you know Cebuano is far different from English. While English has a Subject Verb Agreement, in Cebuano on the other hands, its the complete opposite. Cebuano has a distinct Verb- Subject- Object Agreement. Weird huh?


Vocab for the Day!

English Cebuano
How are you Musta na?
I A-ko/ ko
You I-kaw/Ni-mo
Here Di-ri
There Did-to
Read Ba-sa
This Ka-ni
That Ka-na
Book Libro
Like Ganahan
 

 

Grammar

Cebuano is a language with the Verb Subject Object sentence order. Nouns and adjectives are joined by the nga connector with their order arbitrary as long as the nga connector is in between them. However for questions, the order changes.

 

Examples

English Cebuano Literal
I like you Ganahn ko nimo like i you
I will go there Mu-adto ko didto will go I there
I'm reading a book Nag basa ko ug libro reading I a book
There he is! Na-a siya didto! is he there
How much is this book? Tag-pila ni(kani) ang libro? How much is the book?
