Palau Language Proverbs Quiz


QUESTION 1:
Please choose the corrective figurative meaning for this proverb:
:
 When provoked, he gets easily irritated or angered.
 One bad person can ruin the reputation of a whole group.
 Applied generally to the benefit of cooperative endeavor: small favors multiply, great results may have small beginnings.
 A recent idiom referring to a man who talks too much; a chatterer, but especially one who exaggerates.
 This saying is given two meanings, both negative, pertaining to the people of northern Palau and to Ngaraard particularly: (i) the people of northern Palau are so provincial that they still think Palau is a huge country; (2) the people of northern Palau are the biggest liars (a play on "to deceive," which sounds like Belau [Palau] ). The idiom may be shortened to "Men of the point" (Chad ra bkul), referring to a point of land at Ngirair marking the boundary of Ngaraard. Or the act of patting the elbow (bkul) may carry the same meaning. Actually, the idiom is of fairly recent vintage, pertaining in part to resistance on the part of some of the people of northern Palau to administrative programs instituted by the Japanese.
