- judge someone, name someone, call someone
Buka goake ngadanin ibane.[example 1]
Like a crow naming himself. [proverb] The word for crow is “goak”. The sound that a crow makes is “goak”. So, when a crow talks, he “names himself”. This is said of a person who tells lots of interesting things, but mostly about himself. Most of his stories are probably lies, but his audience does not know whether they are or not.
- F. Eiseman, Proverbs. 1987
