    What's the meaning of "may nalaman ako"?

    Does that mean "I've found it" or "I knew it"?

    may nalaman ako = I learned something
    May nalaman ako tungkol kay Sam. = I learned something about Sam.

    nakita ko na = I found/saw it
    Nakita ko na ang hinahanap ko. = I found/saw what I was looking for.

    I knew it then = Alam ko yun dati.
    I knew it, she's the guilty one. = Sabi ko na nga ba, siya ang may sala/kasalanan.

    "may nalalaman ako" means "i know something". "i knew it/i found" out is "nalaman ko".

    "nalalaman" and "nalaman" come from the root word "alam" which means "to know."

    to a certain extent you can also relate both words to "laman" which among other things
    means "content."

    It means I found out something.
