@Adobo Sometimes, rather than try to remember a specific order like this, I find it easier to memorize a sentence or phrase containing the words in question. For instance, with your question I might learn: "Pwede PO BAng ulitin ninyo?" ("Can you repeat, mum/sir?"). In addition to learning the correct order, I've also learned a useful phrase.

Both Lancent and Diegocorry are correct. "Po" should be ahead of "ba". In fact, it might sound more polite in that order.
 
This guide was posted by TLDCAdmin about a couple of weeks ago. You might find it useful.

Powerful idea...thanks for sharing. Any chance you have a stack of example questions for different combinations?
 
Maraming salamat!

@BoraMac Unfortunately not for Tagalog. This was how we learned Ilonggo many years ago. You could try it using the ExampleFinder on this site as long as you search for words with three letters or more.

@BoraMac @Diegocorry
Here...I created and shared a flash card set using some example sentences to test enclitics...maybe it's helpful?

@TLDCAdmin Napakahusay! No maybe about it! It takes some extra effort to memorize a phrase or sentence as opposed to a single word, but, in the long run, I think you learn more -- at least that's been my experience. Maraming salamat po!
