Hi every one,

You don't usually say this word but you might feel it some times:)
   _
Fua (Foowaah) = I'm jealous

I hope you will never have to say it :)

Hi,

here is one more phrase:

I am a married woman.
O a'u o le fafine faaipoipo.

a'u = me
fafine = woman, adult lady
faaipoipo = married



husband = to'alua
              _
wife  = ava

girl  = teine
boy = tama

adult man = tamaloa
