Usage Note Icon Usage Notes:
Related to "teka": Although "teka" and "maghintay ka" mean the same thing, most of the time they are not interchangeable. Use "teka" when what you want to say is the imperative "wait" and not "you wait". Since "hintay" means "wait", it is possible to use it in place of "teka". Most of the time though, we use "teka". "Antay" is another way of saying "hintay".

This string is roughly used with equal frequency in casual and formal content.?
