Definition for the Tagalog word hindi:

[adverb]  no; not; don't; do not; didn't; did not; won't; will not; can't; cannot; isn't; is not; aren't

Root: hindi
Usage Note Icon Usage Notes:
Take note that the English word "no" can be translated either as the Filipino words "hindi" or "wala", but the two words are not interchangeable.
"Hindi" takes the meaning of no as in "not" or "don't" or "do/does not".
"Wala" takes the meaning of no as in "none" or "there is none" or indicating the absence of something.

So, in response to the question: "Do you have any coffee?," the correct response would be "Wala." "Hindi" would be incorrect.

Having two words to say the single English word "no" can often be tricky for English speakers to get used to.

Note: Sometimes, especially in casual text, "hindi" is abbreviated to " 'di ".
