Examples:
> He's bought his car so he's bicycle is now left unused.
> The attorneys will attempt at a settlement to avoid trial.
> She's an amazing cook that she doesn't even need anyone to try the food she makes.
> He's so busy playing around that his responsibilities are neglected.
> It's as if I live somewhere so far away that I don't know what's going on.
Proverbs:
> Eat tradacna.
Tradacna, one variety of which is the so-called Giant Killer Clam, occurs in quantity off Ngerechelong and is a prominent food there; hence, the people of Ngerechelong.
> A full basket was dropped in Ngeremeduu bay.
From the folk tale about Obak era Kedesau on his way to a feast being given in honor of his wife by her adoptive father. While crossing Ngeremeduu Bay between Ngatpang and Ngeremlengui, Obak dropped a basket of Palauan money overboard. Despite this terrible loss, he still had the courage and sufficient cash to carry off his visit in high style. The saying may be used to reassure someone, following a loss, reminding them that Obak era Kedesau recovered from an even greater loss.
> With persistence the village of Ngersuul was maintained
When the men's clubs of Koror could not proceed as far as Melekeiok, a major village to the north that stood in political balance with Koror, the clubs would often stop over at Ngersuul and sack the small village. Yet the people of Ngersuul, over and over defeated, clung to their village and persisted through history. (Sometimes the village of Angaur is used, with a similar meaning, in place of Ngersuul.) The saying may be applied to the harried individual who is about to give up a task because of repeated failure.
> Destroying his money.
Marriage within the clan, generally considered incestuous, limits the value of the food-money exchange, since the materials simply change hands within the same clan group. A man so married is criticized as having destroyed his source of wealth.
> Like the cockroach of Ngerdobotar, staying on till it became white.
Presumably if a cockroach remains in the darkness for a long time, as one at Ngerdobotar (in Aimeliik) apparently did, it will turn white. Application pertains to a visitor who stays on and on, especially one who is not helpful in the household. Such behavior is not properly human; the person is somehow different, like a white cockroach.
More Examples:
> I fell on the stone path and cracked my head.
> That kid drools so much that his shirt is always wet.
> Why are Ngerkumer's eyes blinking so much?
