A lady, who is leading the nobena in her family, asked me about a word in the nobena that she didn't understand.
The word is hainge.
It doesn't appear in the newer Chamorro dictionaries.
Hainge, according to Påle' Roman, means "to appear."
So, the Archangel Gabriel appeared to Mary. Si San Gabriel ha hainge si Maria.
Pale' Roman was always trying to re-introduce obsolete Chamorro words which the newer generations were dropping.
