Lesson 14: Marags‚


Like mabilis, emphasis in marags‚ words is on the last syllable.
The difference is the glottal stop on the last syllable; stop the vowel sound short in the throat.
It's like saying "uh-oh," where the first syllable is stopped short in the throat.
That is a glottal stop. Marags‚ words are like that, except that the glottal stop is on the last syllable.

So, marags‚ words are like mabilis, except they end in a glottal-stopped vowel.
Marags‚ words are like malumi, except their emphasis is on the last syllable.

Mark the last vowel with a circumflex accent (^), called pakupy‚ in Filipino.
