Verb. From Malay.
“To talk while trapped in a nightmare.”
(Thinking the nightmare depicted above had enough of this persons igau, kind of like a dream-esque “Quit yo’ jibba-jabba”)
This word really intrigues me, for that fact that these four letters can convey such a precise meaning. In English, we have sleep-talking and night terrors, but there is nothing that I can think of that can encompass the facts that:
– You are talking
– You’re having a nightmare
– You’re trapped in that nightmare
Really interesting… in a somewhat dark way!
