Palåbran 09/22/09: Låña

Låña (LAWN-ya): (noun) Oil (generic term).

Note: Be careful how you pronounce this word, låña means "oil," but laña' is an expletive that can be considered very offensive depending on the company present.


"Kao un tulaika i lañan måkina gi karetå-mu?" = "Did you change the engine oil in your car?"
"Na'maipe i laña ya ta aflitu lumpia." = "Heat up the oil and we'll fry lumpia."
"Hu yute' i lañan niyok sa' mahange'." = "I threw away the coconut oil, because it was rancid."
