hi or hoy


Explanation:
In modern Tagalog speech, 'Hi' is 'Hi'. There is no specific Tagalog word for 'hello'. There was a century ago but is no longer used. Among friends, one could hear 'hoy'.

kumusta


Explanation:
Kailangan nating suriin kung saan gagamitin ang salitang 'hi.' bago natin masabi ang nararapat na salita para dito. Kung ang 'hi' ay ginagamit mo para bumati sa isang kasalubong lamang, ang Tagalog na "kumusta." ang nararapat na pagbati. Pero kung ang 'hi' naman ay ginagamit sa bilang pagsagot sa isang pagpapakilala, ang tanong na "Kumusta ka?" o "Kumusta?".
