I love the sound of this Waray word
especially when the rolling of the letter R is exaggerated.
Not everyone can afford to get near an edru
. Only the rich can have that luxury of traveling and of going somewhere. When one boards an edru
, it entails money on the part of the traveler. What is an edru
? It's the Waray word for AIRPLANE.
Edru involves flying; yatot, crawling. While the rich can afford to fly, one crawls when he/she is as poor as a rat. Well, figuratively. What is yatot? That's RAT in Waray.
Only you could come up with this. The first time I flew, I was thinking "Kadarako sini mandaw nga edru!" Salud.ReplyDelete
Daramo pa ini nga iristoryahon ta. Lol!ReplyDelete
And I would love to read more of this, Ms. Rhodora :)ReplyDelete
The history of the word EDRU comes from HYDRO from HYDROPLANE.ReplyDelete
