pronunciation | bee-bah
meaning | To burst forth with exclamations of approval.
etymology | From Spanish viva, meaning "long live" or "hurray".
additional comments | One of the uses of the word in Spanish is as a term of celebration, as in the word "hurray", which is how the word is used now in modern Chamorro. Mother's Day and Father's Day, holidays that celebrate mothers and fathers are greeted with a "Biba Ha'ånen Man Nåna" and "Biba Ha'ånen Man Tåta". On someone's birthday you may hear "Biba Kumpleaños!"
