shagayt-ik!


shagayt-nii is a phrase that can be used in a few different situations. It might mean a triumphant “I beat you” but it could also mean “I wore you out.”

The root sh-g creates words that suggest “tearing.”


That’s why when your dress gets caught somewhere and you hear that ominous sound, you can say, nafnuuf-ii inshag (“my dress is torn”).
