Thlah Khmat and Symphuit Thri

Thlah Khmat is Pnar phrase which in the literal sense means "blind in the eye". It is metaphorically used when one is extremely ashamed of something, that they feel they can no longer look anyone in the eye.

Symphuit Thri is a Pnar description for the residue that is produced after the cane is shaved to make any cane product.

Two Pnar (Jaiñtia) words "Thlah khmat" and "symphuit thri" sent by @anumanda 😄😄😄 Thank you for this contribution!
