Etymology 1 edit

From Proto-Philippine *diq (particle of negation). Blust (2010-) notes that this word is believed by some to be short for hindi (no; not), but its agreement with the monosyllabic word in other languages suggests that this shorter form is older. Compare Yami ji, Ilocano di, Isnag di, Cebuano di/dili, Maranao di, Western Subanon di, Mansaka di, Tausug di.
