Examples:
> I think Droteo's coming to the party.
> Why are you doing mischief in you own house?
> Somebody has burned the building down.
> You don't want to go to the movies, and you don't even want to go to the restaurant, so what do you really want to do?
> The bottle broke on its own.
Proverbs:
> I build it and you destroy it?
May be applied to a person who feels his aims or projects are being destroyed by the actions of another.
> It's like the rat of Ngerard, which eats up all your coconuts and (then) all of ours.
It's a decision, plan etc. that will backfire. A pet rat owned by Mad, chief of Ngaraard, ate the coconuts of most of the chief's neighbors, then, still hungry, ate the chief's own coconuts.
> If it is my lunch it can be divided, if it is yours then it cannot
Two men habitually trapped fish in the same region of the lagoon. One would occasionally ask the other to join him at lunch, the other would always refuse. One day the man who refused arrived with no lunch. When the usual invitation was extended the man refused, saying that, anyway, he had no lunch. The invitation was insistently pressed until the reluctant one gave in. As they split the taro between them the one who shared made the above statement. The idiom is a mild rebuke of a retentive person
> 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.
> Really a child of the back.
A child (sometimes an adult) that behaves well whether its parents are present or not; a child that is good when one's back is turned.
More Examples:
> She started the fire.
> Consensual intercourse between a man and a woman to proclaim their affection for each other.
> How was the food ?
> This enforcement of the stated curfew needs to enforced for the young generation to respect the laws.
> I ate cassava and Japanese noodles soup.
