tüng 1 2

A term that might be useful whilst in laager. This particular introduction hails from the Jõekääru söögi/saal (dining hall) in Ontario last suvi (summer).


Tüng is a colloquial (kõnekeelne) expression for altvedamine or having the rug pulled out from under you. If you are the prankster: sa teed kellelegi tünga aka altvedamine, you tugged the rug, so to speak. If you yourself are pranked, sa SAAD tünga aka alt/minemine – you went blindly under the limbo bar and fell victim. Sind tõmmati alt you were tugged, right on your backside.
