I'm trying to find 10 i-verbs that are truly IO focus, meaning they put an IO in ang-form when there is both an object and IO in a sentence. I have found 9 so far; can you give me a 10th?
ikuha to get something for someone
itimplá to mix something for someone
ibasa to read something for someone
ihirám to borrow for someone else
ibilí to buy something for someone
ihanap to look for something for someone
igawá to make something for someone
ikopya to copy something for someone
ihingí to ask on behalf of

The DO and IO need not both appear in a sentence if either one of them is already understood.
 
"Itimplá", on a few occasions, may not have an IO if used only to mean "to blend an ingredient into something".
 
"Ibasa" is almost never used. We would use "basahin" and then have "para" to indicate "for or to whom".
 
ibigáy = to give something to someone
iturò = to point at/teach something to someone
ibatì = to greet someone for someone

@Tagamanila,
That doesn't concern me. Again, I'm asking for a verb, other than the 9 in my OP, that put the IO in ang-form when there is both an object and IO in a basic sentence. I don't mind if they're a bit rare. The 3 you listed don't do that.

"Ibati" can do that. "Isungkit", also.

@Tagamanila Sorry, I stand corrected. I'm not familiar with either of those - are these sentences ok:
Ibinati ko siya ng guro. = I greeted the teacher for her.
Isinungkit ko siya ng mangga. = I picked a mango for her.
 
(edit - dumb mistakes)

Strikes me as super efficient...and also "dangling" the guro a bit away from ibanti.
 
Anything wrong with clearing the IO beyond the DO?
 
Ibinati ko ang guro para sa kanya.

@BoraMac thanks, you made me realize I messed those up. But the answer is, in theory, no. If your sentence works then it's OF (the teacher is the object and you put it in ang form)

@leosmith
 
Isinungkit ko siya ng mangga. = I picked a mango for her. - This is correct.
 
Ibinati ko siya SA guro. = I greeted the teacher for her. - It should be "sa" because the action is directional.
 
The suggestion of MoraMac, "Ibinati ko ang guro para sa kanya", may sound correct, but actually used the wrong form of the verb. It's not "ibatin", but "batiin". His sentence should be "Binati ko..." instead.

@Tagamanila Thanks very much - you found my 10th verb, Isungkit!
