Curious to know why mag-antay (to wait) is not in the dictionary? Is that because maghintay is more commonly used? Salamat.

I will add it...
 
I found maghintay and its conjugations 529x in our ExampleFinder, but found mag-antay and conjugations only 46x...so it appears maghintay is much more common.

I think the use of "antay" and "hintay" is region based. "Hintay" seems to be preferred by ManileƱos.
