Root: himpapawid
Usage Note Icon Usage Notes:
The Filipino concept of "himpapawid" is the air "up there" or elevated.

For example, we say "himpapawid" for "airwaves", maybe because the original idea is linked to transmission towers and TV antennas on rooftops, where we still imagine that air to be confined above us.

Hence, we would typically use "himpapawid" to mean the air or the atmosphere above the rooftops.

If you want to refer to moving air, it is better to use the word "hangin".
