(SPOT.ph) Let's get things straight: ng is used before nouns and adjectives, while nang is used before adverbs, as a replacement to noong, or as a portmanteau of na and ang (second lesson: a "portmanteau" is a combination of two words). Did we clear it up for you? No problem, we know it's easy to forget just what the difference is between these two words are.

We'll confess that even we type in straight Filipino, only to get stuck on whether to use ng or nang, so we end up deleting the whole sentence and retyping it in English (not that it's any less confusing).

Yet, the difference between ng and nang is a timeless, relatable, hashtag struggle that's become even more evident now, with the Pinoy's primary way of communicating being via text or online chat. The two short and simple words even made it to our list of 10 Filipino Words You're Probably Using Wrong.

It's time to put our foot down and end this generational cycle of ng/nang misuse. If you're the type of person to constantly grammar-check your friends or if you're simply looking to fix your Filipino, this graphic tee that we spotted on Shopee may interest you!
