Usage Examples

Ia ulung mabuah jaka.
[example 1]
He falls down like having a jaka fruit. [proverb] The name for ‘jaka’ (sugar palm) fruit is ‘belukuk’. (Mabuah jaka = beluluk [AMP]) The word for ‘rolling over’, or ‘rolling around over and over’ is ‘ngeluluk’. It is one of the onomatopoeic sounds. So if one falls down ‘beluluk’ (having a sugar palm fruit), one falls down rolling over and over, ‘ngeluluk’. A far-fetched pun.
