Image
Ang WIKApedia ay isang proyekto ng pamahalaan ng Pilipinas (gov.ph) at ng Komisyon ng Wikang Filipino na inilunsad nito lamang Setyembre 29, 2014. Ito ay isang Facebook fanpage na kung saan ay maaari kang mag-post ng iyong mga katanungan tungkol sa wikang Filipino.

Ang WIKApedia ay kalipunan ng mga aralin at paglilinaw hinggil sa wikang Filipino. Tutugon ang pahinang ito sa inyong mga katanungan tungkol sa wika. (Fanpage description)

Marami pang mga aralin ang maaaring matutunan kaya naman i-LIKE na ang WIKApedia sa Facebook!

Gamit ng fanpage ang mga infographics kung saan ay pinapakita at binibigyang linaw ang mga katanugan at mga dapat malaman tungkol sa Wikang Filipino. Narito ang ilang mga halimbawa:


Hindi totoo ang Alibata. Imbento ito ng isang gurong inakalang mula ito sa Arabe. Hango ito sa unang mga titik ng Arabe: alif + bata = alibata

Bagkus, BAYBAYIN. Ito ang ngalan ng sinauna't katutubong alpabeto ng bansa. Mula ito sa baybay na ang ibig sabihin ay ispeling. Sariling a…

BAYBAYIN ang Sinauna at Katutubong Alpabeto ng Ating Bansa [Pilipinas]

Hindi raw totoo ang ALIBATA.

Bagkus, BAYBAYIN ang sinauna at katutubong alpabeto ng ating bansa [Pilipinas].
Mula ito sa baybay na ang ibig sabihin ay ispeling. Sariling atin at hindi hiram.

English: Subject and Verb Agreement

Image
Basic Rule:
A singular subject takes a singular verb, while a plural subject takes a plural verb.

Example:
She dances gracefully. (singular)
They dance together. (plural)

Rule 1:
Two singular subjects connected by "or" or "nor" require a singular verb.

Example:
Mom or dad is arriving at 10 in the morning.

Rule 2:
Two singular subjects connected by "either/or" or "neither/nor" require a singular verb.

Example:
Neither Tina nor Anne is available.
Either Tom or Dan is working today.

Rule 3:
If "I" is one of the two subjects connected by either/or or neither/nor,
put it second and follow it with the singular verb am.

Example:
Neither she nor I am going to the party.

Rule 4:
If a singular subject is connected by "or" or "nor" to a plural subject,place the plural subject last and use a plural verb.

Example:
The cook book or the fiction novels go on that shelf.

Science: Central Nervous System

Image
Central Nervous System – contains the brain and the spinal cord. It serves to connect the sensory and motor fibers within the nervous system thus considered as the "integrating center" for all behavior and bodily functions.

Spinal Cord – is the large rope-like segment of nerve tissue extending down the vertebral column, which is approximately as thick as a person’s little finger. Its principal function is to distribute motor fibers to the effector organs of the body and to collect somato-sensory information to be passed on to the brain. Spinal cord is 2/3 as long as the vertebral column and the rest is spinal roots composed of caudal equina.

Brain – has an average weight of 3 lbs. and contrains at least 15 billion nerve cells called neurons
Major Parts of the Brain1. Hindbrain
Closest to the spinal cordIt performs a series of reflex actions such as blinking of the eye and some processes like breathing, heart rate and blood pressure.Parts of Hindbrain

Components of the Nervous System - Neurons

Image
What is Neuron/Nerve Cell The basic structural unit or building block of the nervous system The smallest nerve cell is less than a millimeter in size while the largest may be more than a meter in length Nerve cell holds the secret how the brain works Nerve cell has two specialized functions: [1] to receive signal [2] the longer extension is for transmitting signals Acethylcholine – is a neurotransmitter or chemical substance that travels across synaptic gap, stimulates the next neuron, carrying the impulse from one neuron to another
Glial cells – are non-neural cells that hold the neurons in place

Myelin Sheath – is the covering on the axons of neurons, which insulate them, making the transmission of impulses faster Parts of a NeuronDendrites – receive impulses and carry them toward the cell bodies. These are short branches of fibers branching out like roots from the cell body Axon – carries impulses away from the cell body toward other neurons. These are the longer branches / fibers…
