Definition for the Tagalog word kanina:
kan ina [adverb] earlier today; earlier Root: kanina
When using "kan
ina", the important thing to consider is that the event that happened earlier has to have happened today. Sometimes we add "um aga" (morning), "tangh ali" (noon) or "h apon" (afternoon) after it to give it a more specific time frame. When used that way, it becomes "kan inang" (kanina + na).
