> I've just heard the news.
Proverbs:
> Like the name of the bai at Chol: "Empty."
A bai in the northern community of Chol is (or once was) called Medederiik, meaning "deserted" or "empty." The idiom may apply to a person without possessions, a poor man.
> You're like the stork which flies with its legs dangling.
You leave unfinished business behind and split.
> Like a squatting bat, hanging but looking down.
Bats hang upside down from the tree and may be thought to have an inverted view of things. Refers to a comment or action that is clearly out of line; rarely said of a person who is present, since the implication is that of weak mindedness.
> He's like a good (lit. fast) top that steadies itself soon after touching the ground.
i.e. he understands or learns quickly. In Palau the top is spun in the air and dropped to the ground where it usually wobbles for a spell before it becomes "planted" or stable. The better the top, the less the wobble. A statement that is right to the point, or a decisive and good decision, is like a good top. The idiom may be applied to a person who is quick to get the point or learn a new skill.
> It's like the birth of a rat with one offspring per mother.
It's something that happens just once, something I put up with only once. According to this saying, the rat bears but one litter. Hence the application "once is enough" about an act that bears no repeating.
More Examples:
> Have you all agreed what we will be doing tomorrow?
> You all are so pretentious and fancy and meanwhile we are just eating scrap.
> No. He or she only feels dizzy.
> Wow, that's really it!
> The Chinese ship finally sailed out last month.
