Examples:
> The tide reaches as high as my knees.
> The weather was very poor.
> I was proud of you.
> Either Cisco or Tony is coming to my house.
> The boat will stop for a short while and then go on.
Proverbs:
> You're like a fish bait which can be eaten or pecked from the top and bottom.
You don't know what to do coz chores keep coming in from left and right.
> Like seaweed at Kosiil, out with the tide and in with the tide.
Kosiil is a location in the lagoon where the seaweed can be seen to bend in and out with the tide. The idiom is applied to a leader who is too flexible and unreliable. In the short form (Kora char ra Kosiil) it may simply mean, "I'll go along with what you decide."
> Like the man of Kayangel, who procured his gifts from Keso
The saying refers to a man from the atoll of Kayangel, some twenty miles north of the main islands of Palau, who, on his way south to visit friends, stopped at an intermediate reef, Kesol, to fish for a present for his host. Refers to a person who, en route to a visit, tries to borrow a present from another guest; any person who suddenly wants to borrow money.
> Like Ngiramesemong, rehashing what has been finished.
Pertains to a person who repeatedly reminds another of past favors or continually recalls the mistakes of others. (My sources no longer recalled the episode or story from which this idiom derives.)
> 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.
More Examples:
> My budget was low, I could not buy cigarettes.
> This old man stayed stiff and contorted as he died.
> She's a pig!
> My music teacher really is good in playing guitar.
> We can say she is really a woman from Ngerchelong.
