Did you by any chance mean arena?
- n. a genus of tropical Asian and Malaysian palm trees
“La pintura más común es aquella en que la mujer arenga en una especie de asamblea a algunas de su sexo, mientras su marido se dedica a barrer la casa y entretener al bebé que llora.”
“-- The arenga palm, which is of great value to the Malays.”
“Early in the morning, Alexis -- still curious about the arenga-trees -- and desirous of ascertaining to what genus of palms they belonged -- strayed off among them, in hopes of procuring a flower.”
“The place where they had halted was in the midst of a magnificent grove, or rather a forest, of palms; of that kind called _nibong_ by the natives, which is a species of the genus _arenga_.”
“Pens and arrows for blow-guns are also made from the midribs of the side leaves; and, in fact, the _arenga saccharifera_, like many other palms, serves for an endless variety of purposes.”
“Yes, there was he, with his black body, yellowish muzzle, and white half-moon upon his breast -- busy gorging himself upon the tender leaflets of the arenga -- whose white fragments, constantly dropping from his jaws, strewed the ground at the bottom of the tree.”
“Of course this wild arenga wood -- furnishing the bear with as much "cabbage" as he might require -- was just the place for him; and Alexis now understood the reason why the Dyak had conducted them thither.”
“Concluía con la siguiente arenga: Si has comenzado, pues, un camino, sigue adelante en cualquier circunstancia: sólo puedes ganar; no corres ningún peligro; quizás al fin caigas, pero si al dar los primeros pasos te hubieras arrepentido y bajado la escalera, te habrías despeñado desde el comienzo mismo; y esto no sólo es probable sino seguro.”
“_arenga_, and had the gratification of finding that the _ruse_ of Alexis had proved successful.”
