Examples:
> You're still a newcomer around here, so watch your behavior.
> The leader carries the responsibility for community affairs.
> I will make the towns of Judah like a desert where no one lives.
> Perseverance is the reason why Ngersuul still exists as a village (because in old times the inhabitants of Ngersuul continually survived attacks by raiding parties from Koror).
> You've become a laughing stock in the village.
Proverbs:
> Sea crabs have pushed out land crabs.
Outsiders have taken over the land or titles of local people. An outsider (e.g., adopted child, friend) has become more important than a blood relative.
> Commoners are the tools of the village.
This idiom, resembling the organic analogy of society with the common people becoming the "hands" of the state, may be used to "put the commoner in his place," or to suggest that a member of the ruling elite be more considerate of the commoner residents.
> The ocean crabs crowd out the village crabs.
"Crabs from the sea," in other words, commoner peoples who have only recently taken up residence, may become more influential than long-term residents of higher, historical rank. Members of such lineages, omengdakl or low status, because they must achieve to gain recognition and because they are adopted and protected by high ranking clans, may actually be more privileged than older residents.
> 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.
More Examples:
> I really don't like Arizona state because of the heat.
> We need to respect the village elders.
> Palauan language is limited and there are many foreign words being used.
> Where in the U.S are you from?
> The spirits knew that our home land is becoming deserted.
