halay11.1nRice, unhusked, a staple food of the Philippines.Traditionally Tboli have planted only upland rice on mountain sides. The main parts of the rice plant are: tlê 'a shoot' (which comes up at the base of the plant, usually three or four for each plant); |tinu 'the stalk' (each one has five or six hollow joints, with a leaf coming out at each joint); doun 'leaves' (which are long, slender, and pointed, rather stiff); teglang 'the stem' (where the leaf is attached to the stalk); klifak 'a sheath-like covering at the base of each stem'; (after the leaf has dried and fallen off, the klifak remains on the stalk, strengthening it); bungu 'fruit' (i.e., the grains of rice which grow on a branched panicle (head), each one bearing from fifty to three hundred spikelets (flowers) from which the grains develop). When speaking in general of the unhusked rice grains, they are called botù, which is any spherical entity; husked rice is msó; glutinous rice is hulut. The importance of rice in the culture can be seen in (1) the many stages they can identify in the development of the rice plant, and (2) in the great many varieties of upland rice Tboli can identify by looking at the grains.Oryza sativa.1.2vTo produce, plant rice, have an abundant harvest.Ni halay ni mò le halay.This year they plant rice.2A year.Strictly speaking, a year includes only the ten months used for rice production.
