Examples:
> I saw the canoe that those men carved.
> I almost got run over by a car.
> They were all canoes of equivalent quality.
> I carved the canoe and then painted it.
> My car is really getting old and is making rattling noises.
Proverbs:
> Like the man of Ngerechemai, who lost his turtle and lost his canoe.
Relates to a fisherman who jumped from his canoe to catch a turtle only to find that his canoe had drifted beyond recovery. Applies to any situation where a person fails at a task, or, aptly, to a situation where a man, through his own foolishness, loses both his wife and his mistress.
> Like Kerosene, poling his canoe with no obvious destination
Under the German administrator Winkler before World War I, a Palauan named Ngirakerisil (Mr. Kerosene) was employed as a canoe operator. Daily he would take the tireless administrator to a different part of Palau to inspect the various economic programs (largely coconut planting) instituted by the now legendary Winkler. The operator, least of all, could predict where they would be going next. The idiom is applied to any aimless person or action; indecision; a changeable person.
> Don't be like the man from Ngerchemai who lost both the turtle and the canoe.
Don't bite off more than you can chew...don't be selfish.
More Examples:
> Luke told me there was a car outside.
> I am looking for a car.
> I only have two months to pay off for my car.
> Do you know how to drive a car?
> My younger brother and I were making our canoe.
