Palau Language Proverbs Quiz


QUESTION 1:
Please choose the corrective figurative meaning for this proverb:
:
 A natal, or birth, mark
 i.e., a child will resemble its father; human nature will not change. The ukal, a lumber tree, resembles the titiml, a fruit bearing tree, at least to the extent that both are trees and become quite large. Both have assets but are quite different. The idiom is applied in the sense that a child resembles its father and will become what its father was. It may also be used to mean "human nature can't be changed."
 The implication is the same as in the preceding; reference is made to rope that might be used to whip or tie up the lower ranking Angaurese.
 A child of the outside is a commoner and is likely to be bashful in the presence of an elite person.
 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.
