Cebuano Grammar Feature: The Linker "ka"
After learning Visayan numbers which is normally used in counting 1 until 10 items, let us do some applications. Let us study the linker "ka". In Visayan, there are four linkers and they are used in creating descriptive phrases.
Analyze the following:
tulo ka iring
usa ka adlaw
duha ka iro
upat ka bulan
lima ka oras
What comes after the Visayan number in these phrases?
That's right. The linker "ka" comes after a quantity.
Try doing the following in Visayan:
nine gray strands of hair
Send me your answers and I will tell you if you got them right.
The fourth one will be the topic of our next lesson.
