               Nag-uban ang amahan ug anak nga lalaki pagbisita sa lote nga bag-ong pinalit sa amahan. Ang panuigon sa bata kay 10.

                “Diri ta mamalhin sa sunod Nak, tukuran nato diri og balay,” ingon sa amahan ngadto sa anak.

                Daghan nisulod sa hunahuna sa bata.

                “Unya Pa, butangan nila ni og daghang kahoy?” pangutana sa batang lalaki.


                “Yehey! Maglatay-latay dayon ko Pa.”

                ”Ayaw Nak, kay matagak ka, madisgrasya ka.”

                “Maglatay-latay lang gud ko Pa, Sigi na!”

                “Ayaw lagi, kagahi ba nimo og ulo,” nasuko na ang amahan.

                Nadugay sa ilang lalis, nabunalan ra jud ang anak. Kadtong nakauli na sila sa balay, nangutana ang inahan ngadto sa amahan nganong nabunalan man ang ilang anak.

                “Kay gusto man maglatay-latay,” ang tubag sa amahan.

                THE END














is one of the many apt words to describe the nature of the movement of anything liquid (water, in the example you gave).

as language forms a greater part of hte philosphy of each country, it gives variation and avenue for creating new "words and expressions" that depict their way of thinking.


Now we focus on "water"

ever heard of the word "nisidlit?" or "nisirit?"

as weird as it could sound, it describes one of the many ways a water could move. and since water has no form and cannot move on its own, either pressure or other human interventions could affect how slow/fast it would move. 

to Leak is to move from a place that contains all the liquid to a place that is vacant. . .with a connotation of "high pressure" because it squeezes itself out of its former container to a new "vacuum/vacant place".

so nisidlit can be used, but only talks of the "high pressure" that is exerted to make the water move as such, from its container to somewhere else outside it.

now "nidagayday" is also reflective of water movement. . .but only that water flows in a slow/gradual movement-low pressure.

however you look at these words- LEAK - NISIDLIT - NIDAGAYDAY- you can only see the awareness a person has of the movement of something depending on waht you would like to emphasize: the "pressure" of the movement, the container and the vacuum indicating its movement, etc. You can even coin a new word to describe the movement you observe in your chosen specimen :D


i hope this helps (although it's too wordy)
have a nice day
