Time indicators help in describing the specific moment in time (or intervals) when an event occurred or will occur. Some examples of these in English are "every," "until," "on," "last," and others. See the Filipino translations of the time indicators below.
These are used as indicators and as "introducing words," providing more detail about the time that the speaker wants to express.
Notice that the time indicators sa, no, and ngnang do not have direct translations in English. The reason for this is that different kinds of time expressions are used in English in denoting specific times. In the next few lessons, each time indicator will be discussed in detail.
