- long, thin bony fish
- a type of fish
PROVERB: Cotek sambungin layur.[example 1]
Sambung= add, join; Cotek: common very short fish; Layur: common much longer fish. So the meaning is that something short becomes something much longer. It is used sometimes to mean that as gossip spreads the story gets bigger and more impressive, and the subject gets exaggerated out of all proportion compared to the original.
- Fred Eiseman Jr - Proverbs, 1987
