Question: How to use "Bitin"
 
Hello all!
 
I've been working my way through the top 2000 flash cards and noticed there aren't examples of "bitin" as in (adj) hanging/suspended/short/insufficient/lacking.
 
Can anyone give me an example of its use in a sentence!
 
Salamat!

The root bitin is a great example of the elegance of Filipino to take a core meaning and extend through analogy... an object hanging...to suspended between thumb and and a finger tip...to dangling at your whim. If you hear it, somone may not be entirely satisfied.

@BoraMac You're correct! I had a relationship with a Filipina who often said (after an engagement) "bitin ako," Haha
