This "ko ka" "ko ikaw" is a lot like Nakaka- and Naka(repeat
posted: 4 hrs ago by Bituingmaykinang
"This "ko ka" "ko ikaw" is a lot like Nakaka- and Naka(repeat first two syllables). "Kita" being a replacement for "ko ka" but in reality it's "ko ikaw" because it's actually used in daily speech. Not in formal ones but in more casual speech and even in some songs. Academians would say that "Nakadidiri" is the correct usage and "Nakakadiri" is wrong, but in reality what is spoken is "Nakakadiri". I don't think it's wrong, but academians and grammarians tend to favor a certain pattern over another, and wha..."

"This is quite a bizarre thread. What exactly is the goal here? To make jkos concede and remove all "ko ka" references? Really??? Everybody in this thread seems pro "ko ikaw", and against jkos. Not so. I 110% agree with jkos, cos that's the most logical thinking process for a Tagalog student. I'm with jkos. "Kita" makes more sense as a "ko ka" replacement (which is WRONG, in case somebody brings this up yet again). That's how Tagalog Reference Grammar, and Essential Tagalog Reference, describe it.

"@jkos https://www. tagalog.com/message_board /forumimgs/TGL89278334190 .png Link: https://www.tagalog.com/r eader-assist/studying.php Took a screenshot of specifically what I think the member might be talking about. It's when one tries to click the "Remove" button to remove a word off the study list (which I've circled in the photo attached to this post). When one clicks the button, it seems as if nothing happens. If you need me to be more specific, please let me know...."

"This is turning into a weird rabbit hole, no offense @akosikoneho. ; ) You can construct a dozen simple example “sampalin” sentences where “I” am the slapper, and the pronoun is always “ko.” You can construct a dozen simple example “sampalin” sentences where the “you” receiver of the slap is always “ka.” I’m hard pressed to create ANY other verb-first, simple, non-inverted “sampalin” example sentences that use “ikaw” as the slap receiver, other than the single ins..."

"@moninja777 Do you mean this in regards to when you try to press "remove" next to words listed on your study list? If so, I do have the same problem as well - I can't remove the words as well. If this becomes a problem, I found that you can: 1. Search up the word(s) you're trying to remove from your study list on the Tagalog.com dictionary 2. Press on the "✓ Studying" button for this relevant word. 3. The grey "✓ Studying" button should have turned blue, and the word should be removed off you..."

"@AMBoy in "informal speech", it seems to be valid (academically, probably not. But there are lots of words used daily by Filipinos that aren't recognized by the KWF). But from time to time, you'd hear people say "ko ikaw" instead of kita, but as I said earlier, it's considered nowadays as child speak. As @akosikoneho pointed earlier, some songs use "ko ikaw" like "Gaano ko ikaw kamahal". Let me see if I can find media content that uses "ko ikaw" instead of kita. But I never heard "ko ka" to "replace"..."
So "Sasampalin ko ikaw" would be valid?

"So "Sasampalin ko ikaw" would be valid? Where on this site can I learn about "ko ikaw" rules? I'm kinda more interested in the fact you can even use ikaw like this. I kinda agree with the above poster how can you have a rule that replaces something that's not even correct, and with no mention of what is a correct form (that it can replace)?..."
