Palåbran 04/15/09: Hulu

Hulu (HOO-loo): (noun) Thunder.

"A'gang i hilu." = "The thunder is loud."
"Huhulu ha' gi hiyong." = "It really thundering outside."
"Ha espånta yo' i hilu." = "The thunder frightened me."

Note: I got another question about the vowel harmony thing. "hulu" and "hilu" are the same word in Chamorro, we change the "u" to an "i" when it is preceeded by an "i". So "i hulu" turns into "i hilu", "ni hulu" turns to "ni hilu", etc. I hope that clarifies it a little bit.
