Palåbran 07/10/09: Niyok

Niyok (KNEE-dzuk): (noun) Coconut--tree or fruit.

Note: While we do use niyok as a general term, when referring to the fruit, we usually reserve it for the matured fruit before it begins to sprout.


"Hu kåmyo i niyok para i kelaguen." = "I grated the cooconut for the kelaguen."
"Må'usa i bagåson niyok gi kanden niyok." = "Coconut chunks are used for coconut candy."
"Gof didike' i tronkon niyok." = "The coconut tree is very small."
