vocabulary

Here's some vocabulary from a fragment of a poem that I was trying to read last night.

for di = out of, from, away from
kai = to fall
kaminda = where, in the place which...
man = hand
sigui = to follow
tera = earth

sigui gives us the adjective siguiente meaning "following, consecutive." I suppose siguiente is sometimes a good translation for the English word "next."

Some examples of siguiente found on the web:

anto e siguiente luna
before the following month

bo por sa e kontesta riba e kuater siguiente preguntanan
you can know the answers to the four following questions

E dia siguiente nos a bishita "la escuela de maestro".
The next day we visited la escuela de maestro.
