So the President had this accident and his aides explained," na semplang lang." Of course we know what semplang is. But this cute Tagalese term does not give one a precise picture of things. Kon gi-Binisaya pa to  mas klaro unta kay daghan ta kaayog terms pertaining to mishaps.

 For instance the word natumba is generic. It doesn't specify which direction. If you fall close to where you were standing, that's nahapla. But if you fall forward and moved further on by the momentum, nadusmo na na. Pero kon nadusmo ka and your face is pressed into the ground- well, kung hard surface - nadu-og. Kon soft surface sama sa lapok o tai sa kabaw - naumud ka. Into the mud, so to say. Klaro?

Now if one falls forward and into a big and deep hole - depende. Kon naa kas tapad, nahagbong na siya. Pero kon tua kas ubos - natagak. Klaro? 

In cases when one is walking on level ground and you stumble down  because your foot got caught by something, depende. Ang generic ani napandol . If the obstruction is caused a rope or wire, nasapid ka. If the obstruction caused you to falter forward but you managed to regain both balance and dignity, that's natukamo. If it brings you to your knees, natikluhod.  If you fall flat nadagma. Kon paluma-lumag sul-ob og high heel o pantoplas and miss your balance- natakilpo. Klaro?

Now we go to backward fall. Nahayang is the generic name for this mishap. If you fall backward struggling against both indignity and the law of gravity, that's natikayhang. If you fall backward splaying both legs open to the world, that's natikang-kang. And if you flip over one time, nabalintong. More than once - aw di nabalintong-balintong. Klaro?

Now if you have other terms to add here or contest the accuracy of this listing, aw Senior Citizen na jod ka! Klaro?
