Palåbran 04/01/09: Nunok

Nunok (NEW-nook): (verb) To conceal fruit for ripening, to make ripen.


"Hu nunok i gada' na mångga." = "I hid the young mango to ripen it."
"Adahi i nininok-mu na u lamas." = "Pay attention to the thing you hid to ripen so it doesn't rot."
"Mannunok gue' alageta para u fa'denne'." = "She forced some avocados to ripen so she could make fina'denne' (so she could fa'denne' them)."

Note: -in- makes nouns out of verbs, so "nininok" = "the thing that was hidden to ripen."
