Palåbran 08/10/09: Såtpe

Såtpe (SUT-pee): (verb) Sprinkle.

Note: Topping's dictionary also says it means "sow," but it is sowing in the sense of sprinkling seeds. It also says it is a slang for "go ahead" or "o.k.," but I don't know how to use it that way. If you know it, let me know.


"Hu såtpe i tinanom siha nu hånom kada dia." = "I sprinkle the plants with water every day."
"Adahi na un sinatpe ni laña." = "Careful you don't get splashed by the oil."
"Måloffan i kareta ya ha såtpe yo' ni fache'." = "The car passed by and sprayed (sprinkle) me with mud."
