WE have number agreement between the "adjective - plural marker" for ma- adjectives?
 
maputi ang pusa.
 
mapuputi ang mga pusa.
 
How about non-ma adjectives? Seems minsan minsan...depende!
 
Weeeeeeeeeeeh. IS that formal, always or just style? Where did I miss this bit of grammar...links please.
 
Feels like ESL pollution from English SV agreement.

Ahhh...ganun ha. Gets kita..nvm.
 
Often you're not ready to understand what you read...
 
Plural (Maramihan)
When the adjective is describing two or more noun/pronoun, "ma-" is used and the first syllable or first two letters of the root word is repeated.
 
Examples: maliliit (small), magaganda (beautiful)
 
The word "mga" is not needed if the noun/pronoun is right next to the adjective.
 
Example: Ang magagandang damit ay kasya kina Erica at Bel. (The beautiful clothes can fit to Erica and Bel.)
