Palåbran 07/14/2012: Oggan

Oggan (OH-gan): Stuck on, run aground, stranded, to land on accidentally.

Note: Oggan can also be used figuratively, as in ending up somewhere other than your intended destination.

"Bai fa'maolek i batko-ku sa' kanna' ma'ippe' annai oggan yo' gi acho'." = "I'm going to repair my boat, because it was almost split when I accidentally landed on a rock."
"Oggan i boti gi chepchop unai, lao gi mayamak." = "The boat ran aground on the sand, but it wasn't broken."
"Ai, sa' oggan gue' otro båndan siudåt, sa' ti ha atetendi i siñåt siha." = "Oh [...], he ended up on the other side of the city, because he wasn't paying attention to the signs."
