lahón

Hiligaynon

To continue, go farther than intended, do moreover or besides, do something more, continue to work on some other job, etc. Ang túyò ko nga makádto sa Ogtóng lámang, ápang naglahón akó sa Ilóngílong. I had the intention of going only as far as Oton, but I went on to Iloilo. Ginlahón mo pa gid sang sadól ang isá ka báhin sang pamulákan? Did you really hoe over one more garden-plot? Kon matápus ang ímo buluhatón lahoní akó. When you have finished your work, assist me in mine. (see dáyon; N.B. The other lahón (to roast corn in the husks) is probably the same term and can be explained by the circumstance that it implies a continuous process, the corn being plucked and roasted at once without removing the husks).
