Opu

Glyph of the word 'opu'.

opu

  • (n.) louse, flea

Nemilele ia i ipe opu!
“Kill that flea!”

Notes: Ugh… Missed my deadline. We’ve started playing basketball again, and we had an ugly loss yesterday. I played particularly badly. Yesterday was terrible.

Today’s word is inspired by yesterday’s, as I changed the iku for fala to look stylistically like the iku for opu. As it stands now, opu look like a modified version of fala. In fact, opu is a straight-up ikunoala, being a combination of o and pu.

If you looked at yesterday’s post, you would have seen me referring to “flea” as opa. Oops. That’s a different word (which I’ll put up tomorrow). They just look so similar, though… It’s easy for one’s lazy eye to slip and glance another entry.

    I do these in bunches. There are several from the early months (like December through March), and I felt like doing so more yesterday, so I did a bunch for May and June. If you go back and look, there are a lot more now. :)

    You could have a tag for the ones with audio…

    Ideally, I was supposed to have audio for all of them… You’re probably right, though. I’ll see about doing that soon.
