The Difference Between “Ng and Nang”
A common reason why the use of “ng” and “nang” is not correct may be due to the inattentiveness of students to the correct use and the difference between them.
The curriculum does not include the study of “of” and “nang”.
The Difference Between “Ng and Nang”
“This is cat food”
The “ng” also answers the question of what and who. Just like the example given, it can be said that “this is cat food” to the question What is it? o Whose food is this?
While the word “nang” can be used to shorten the word “na” and “ng”.
“Change paper.” (Switch roles)
The sentence is an example of the words “na” and “ng”. There are times when two words are joined together because that can happen. Since “na” ends in a vowel, it can be joined with “ng” to shorten the word.
Uses of “of”
First, “ng” is used after adjectives.
An example of this is: “Rex bought four loaves of bread for his son.” The word ‘of’ refers to the counting or number of one or more things.
Second, ‘ng’ is used in nouns.
An example of this is “The teacher went to school.” Like the examples in the first chapter, it expresses possession. The clue here is the word “of” which answers the questions of what and whom.
Third, ‘ng’ is used to indicate an owner.
For example, “People’s trust is hard to get so keep it.” It answers to whom the “trust”.
Fourth, ‘ng’ is used when the preceding word is an adjective.
For example, “Dad bought a nice dress to give to mom.” “of” is followed by an adjective.
And finally, ‘ng’ is used as a marker to perform the verb in the sentence.
For example, “The teacher gave the books to the students.” In this sentence, the verb is followed by “of”.
With “nang”, it can be used in the middle of repeated verbs, such as “Julia was running in the park.”
Second, ‘nang’ is used as a substitute for ‘na and ang’, ‘na and ng’, and ‘na and na’ in the sentence.
For example, “José came home in the morning.” (It was morning when Jose arrived at the house.)
“Nina is too rude” (Nina is too rude.)
“Let him get his things.” (Let him get his stuff.).
And finally, ‘nang’ is used to indicate the cause or act of motion. For example, “The brothers studied quietly.” It answers how the brothers studied; quiet
