Usage Examples

Ia ngorta makatak wayah.
[example 1]
He talks like an old frog. (Proverb) ‘Wayah’ here means old, or hard, or rough skinned. An old frog is a toad. The word for toad is ‘dongkang’. A word that rhymes with ‘dongkang’ is ‘nongkang-nongkang’, meaning ‘jump and skip’. Thus a person is said to talk ‘nongkang-nongkang’ if he talks in a disconnected way, so that he cannot follow what he is saying.
