Usage Examples

[example 1]

[example 2]
"Peanuts are already old". Sounds sort of like: Basang suba layah = Stomach is hungry. So, if you are hungry, you can say that peanuts are already old, and someone will know what you mean.

Ia ngorta makatak wayah.
[example 3]
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.

Mulih ke desane wayah.
[example 4]
Go home to the original (old) village. This is a euphemism for dying.
