- to let something fall
Uli dija lelipine ulung?[example 1]
Where did the snake fall from?
Ane paling maluna, anyi padine. Lantas gedig apang telah ulung woh padine.[example 2]
At the beginning, cut the rice stick. Hit the stick into the basket until all the seeds are fall off.
Buka ulungin bulan, ritatkala tresnan I Made Raine katampi olih I Kadek Putri, ditu di pasisi pasih Merta Sarine.
Like the fall of the moon, when the love of I Made Rai was received by Kadek Putri, over there on the sands of the Merta Sari Beach.
Ia ulung mabuah jaka.[example 3]
He falls down like having a jaka fruit. [proverb] The name for ‘jaka’ (sugar palm) fruit is ‘beluluk’. (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
