Tagalog belongs to the family of the Austronesian languages that is fifth largest group of language in terms of speakers. This family has 1,257 languages spoken throughout Maritime Southeast Asia, Madagascar, the islands of Pacific Ocean and a few places in continental Asia.
Tagalog language consists of eight basic parts – verbs, nouns, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions, pronouns, conjunctions and particles.
In Tagalog, verbs take a variety of affixes that makes them morphologically complex. This conjugation of verbs with affixes is used to display aspect, voice, focus and others.
Tagalog nouns usually take case marking particles before but they aren’t inflected. It is a kind of Austronesian alignment called trigger system that is a distinct feature of this language family.
Like nouns, Tagalog pronouns are also characterized by cases.
These are optional elements used in Tagalog grammar but their placement can change the entire meaning of the sentence. Primary purpose of modifiers is to alter, qualify, clarify and limit important elements in a sentence.
Tagalog grammar has two types of adjectives – passive adjectives and ma-adjectives. Passive adjectives are used with transitive verbs and ma-adjectives are for intransitive verbs.
These particles are used to convey different nuances in meaning. They have very important information to convey.
Tagalog word order can be described as flexible and it can be compared to English in flexibility. But the verb in a sentence structure always remains in its initial position. It is the complementing position of noun phrase that brings flexibility in a sentence.
Tagalog language also has three negation words – hindi, wala and huwag. The first one is used for verbs and equations; second word forms the opposite of may and mayroon and the third word is for negative commands. Tagalog also uses a number of conjunctions.
