    both odette and Peachey are correct...

    basically, "ang" is the equivalent of english definite article "the" which may come before a noun and an adjective.

    "ang libro" (the book)
    "ang malakas na hangin" (the strong wind).

    about odette's example:

    "ang aking inaalala - what i am worried about"

    this is absolutely correct although, the real translation would go like this:

    "ang aking inaalala - THE thing I'm worried about"

    :)

    ang is use for pointing an object or thing... in englsh it could be equal to the.

    example.:

    The Apple - ang Mansanas
    The King - Ang Hari

    It could also use like this to point out something...

    ang aking inaalala - what i am worried about
    ang di ko gusto - what i dont like
    ang aking sinasabi - what i am saying

     

    May I add? :)

    I understand when "ang" also comes before an adjective, it roughly means "so...!"

    Ang baho! - How stinky!
    Ang matamis ka! - You're so sweet!
    Ang galing ko! - I'm so good!
