Fun facts about Fijian

A common version of 'How are you?' is O lai vei, literally 'Where are you going?'- to which you can reply with a specific destination, an intention of what you're going to do, or a vague answer e.g. 'over there'.

Bula is the most common greeting and means 'life' (amongst other things).

The Fijian proverb 'Leka na iqila' (the breadfruit picking pole is too short) means that you don't have enough money to do something.§

The name 'Fiji' comes from the Tongan language: in the Fijian language, Fiji is actually 'Viti'.
