1. Dumadaan (current tense?)
2. Nagdadaan (because i am guessing)
3. Dadaan (?)
 
I really need to start working on these.

1. Dumaan ako sa palengke dahil hindi ako magdadaan doon (=pass by there?) on purpose :-D
2. Nagdadaan because I did it intentionally?
3. I'm not even sure what this means... the trash is going to pass by?

:D Agawin ko ang dictionary sa d2. Busted ako! Meeeeeh.
 
"Has the Garbage Truck gone by?" Sabi daw.
 
I don't think that is how it would have exactly hit my ears without more.
 
Ay naku....don't look doon. Pangako ha! Although...don't think it matters much ehhhh.
 
Ang tanong pero walang sagot na sakto.

@Giorgio I guess....how does the trash "pass by"..only by trak...pero...basurero or trak ng basura ...prevents alot of brain freeze imo.

Must we simply not accept that some verbs are only UM-verbs, some only MAG-verbs and some can be used either with UM or MAG ? I think I can only say ‘uminom ako’ and not ‘naginom ako’. I can only say ‘nagtrabaho ako” and not ‘trumabaho ako’. When I look up the verb ‘daan’ in the Tagalog-English dictionary (by Leo James English, 2008 edition) no distinction is made between ‘dumaan’ and ‘magdaan’.
Or is it more complicated than that?

@BoraMac @Ahkasi The word "Dumadaan" has something to do with frequency. If I frequently pass in the palengke or market, then i will say, dumadaan ako sa palengke. That is grammatically correct. Same is true with "Dumadaan ako sa bahay", which translates to I passes through our house or I passes our house everyday or every time i go to school.
On the other hand, "Magdadaan na ba ang basura o Dadaan na ba ang basura?" is literally correct but the meaning is something different because "Dadaan" is pass or passes and "basura" is garbage. Can the garbage walk or pass through? no, it cannot. It needs a carrier in order to move.
