MÅSMAI : drenched, soaked

More people are familiar with the word fotgon.  But fotgon means wet; måsmai goes further.  It means someone or something is totally soaked.

Måsmai masahalom.  Soaked in one's sweat.

Måsmai håga' chininå-ña si Jose.  Jose's shirt is soaked in blood.

Måsmai yo' gi ichan.  I was soaked in the rain.

The word måsmai is a contraction of ma sumaiSumai means to submerge in water or liquid.
