Examples:
> They both left at the same time.
> I was so embarrassed I thought I'd die.
> Sam and Pat are quarrelling.
> Helen and I are friends.
> We talked about lots of problems.
Proverbs:
> Like his father, for he ate his father's premasticated food.
Applied to a child by adoption, with the implication that the adopted child resembles his adoptive father
> 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."
> You grab and then you pick it up.
Like telling a joke, you're still telling it yet you laugh like you just heard it.
> 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.
> I receive it and you ask for it?
A man asks for and receives that which he needs from a second party. A third party, learning of this, asks the first party for it. Used as implied or generally about any unreasonable request
More Examples:
> I would like to eat grilled ume and taro.
> Yes, there were a lot of people at the party.
> Is that your dream or did it really happen?
> Go wash the sardines real good so we can fry some and have some for sashimi.
> Ulang really had great luck and didn't have an accident.
