Layo

Glyph of the word 'layo'.

layo

  • (v.) to crawl
  • (n.) crawling
  • (adj.) crawling

Male layo ei…
“I’m gonna crawl…”

Notes: From the Led Zeppelin song of the same name. Great song.

I thought I’d do layo today since I did a derivation of its reduplicated form earlier. I figure crawling is one of those intrinsically human things. It’s something all humans do, at one point in their lives. I would be really surprised to see a language with a non-basic word for crawl.

(Though, of course, the reduplicated form is much more commonly used in Kamakawi.) ;)
