We often say something happens to something.
When that something is a pronoun (non-personal pronoun),
we have what we call pattern 3D.
|Pattern 3D||Non-personal pronoun||AY object-focus verb
|That||was bought by me at the market.|
|Iyan||ay binili ko sa palengke.|
In the pattern definition above:
"Non-personal pronoun" can be replaced by "one or more non-personal pronouns."
"Object-focus verb" can be replaced by "one or more object-focus verbs."
Compare the different patterns:
|3A Personal name||Charina was given a gift.|
|3B Personal pronoun||We were not given gifts.|
|3C Non-personal name||Mother was given the gift of music.
|3D Non-personal pronoun||It was given many gifts.
