    I am linguistically ignorant, knowing only English. I am trying to learn Ilocano, but so far it has been a slow process. It is confusing [to me], also.
    I see many phrases written slightly different, also, such as:

    "Naimbag a bigat" and "Naimbag a bigatmo" and "Naimbag nga bigat mo" for "Good morning."

    Is one "more" correct?

    Thank you very much for any advice you can offer.

    Well, they are all literally correct with slight technical difference.

    "Naimbag a bigat" - Good Morning.
    "Naimbag a bigatmo" and
    "Naimbag nga bigat mo"- Good Morning to you. (It depends on what part of Ilokano speaking region you are from.)
