-137- Kekau

Standard

Verb. From Indonesian.

“To wake up from a nightmare”

FE_DA_Nightmare_013013425x283

I’m unsure as to whether there are any other connotations to this (such as waking up in a sweat or yelling) and if there can be any modifications added to the word. A little bit like the Eskimos and their multiple affixes (not words!) for ‘snow,’ it would be interesting is kekau did the same.
