Malagasy MihikaWhen you eat too much dry things and it becomes hard to swallow.

The word can be used for "squashed in" or "packed in" but most of the time it's used to describe somebody whose mouth is so dry he's struggling to swallow. Imagine you stuff your mouth with crispbread and try to swallow all of it at once. Of course, you can't put jam or butter on it, or drink anything. Well chances are you will be "mihika-ing". There is a well-known challenge in France to swallow three "petit beurre" in a minute. At first people think it's easy because it looks like a small quantity of food. But then everybody loses and experiences what "mihika" means.
