I know that in Tagalog, there are subject and non subject markers used. For non persons you use ang for subject, and ng for non subjects. For people you use si for subjects, and ni for non subjects. Anyway, they're a little more indepth than that in Tagalog. But, they helo distinguish who is who in the sentence. I kind of did the same thing in Saalangal. You can find them on my web pages :). ________________________________________________ It's worth the risk of burning, to have a second chance...
