Palåbran 06/09/09: Diahlo

Diahlo (DIAH-lu): No, no thanks, never mind, it's all right, it's ok.

Note: "No, no thanks, never mind" is the definition given by Topping in his dictionary, but I don't know how to use it like that personally, so I'll give you my understanding of it. If you know how to use it another way, let me know.


"Ti måmåsa i kaddo, lao diahlo sa' ti ñålang yo'." = "The soup is not done, but it's ok, because I'm not hungry."
"Diahlo na måkopbla yo', sa' hu ekspepekta." = "It's alright that they asked me to pay up, because I was expecting it."
"Målålåtde yo', lao diahlo sa' isao-hu ha'." = "I was scolded, but it's ok, because it was my fault."
