A section on the use of the dictionary outlines affixes, tenses, verbal and nonverbal stress, combined affix forms, the causative series "pa-," "mang-" and "pang-" series, "pang-" as a nominal, "maki-" and "paki-" series, "hing-" series, unintentional action, ability series, "magin," and plural nouns, verbs, and adjectives.
