Definition #71616 - Preferred [edit]
definition x1 is like an island in a sea of x2; x1 is very distinct/foreign (in appearance, composition and/or behavior) from surroundings/environment/background x2.
notes From pe'a daplu. Does not translate the English metaphor that to be an island is to be isolated. jiksei, seicni, and other words derived from sepli are better for this.
gloss words
place keywords 1. distinct object ; from surroundings
2. surroundings of a foreign object
