Filipino / Tagalog language translation for the meaning of the word teka in the Tagalog Dictionary.
Definition for the Tagalog word teka:
Wait! Shortened form of: "Hintay ka"
"Teka" comes from "hintay ka"?
Because of this, you can always replace "teka" with "hintay" or "hintay ka" in normal usage.
These are all translated the same:
"Teka, teka, teka muna" = "Hintay, hintay, hintay muna" = "Hintay ka, hintay ka, hintay ka muna"
"Hintay" is really the word for "wait" and if you'll try to pronounce "hintay ka" fast, it may just sound like "teka". So, "teka" is really "you wait" and because of that, it is mostly used only in the imperative / command form. Use "teka" when what you want to say is the imperative "wait" and not "you wait". "Antay" is another way of saying "hintay".
