වලි

Argumentative, disputatious, quarrelsome. Waliya (වලිය) means the quarrel. Opposite of Wali (වලි) is usually Shape (ෂේප්) (e.g. 'Wali num apith wali, shape num apith shpe' (වලිනම් අපිත් වලි, ෂේප්නම් අපිත් ෂේප්)). Also note the term Kokka (කෙ‍ාක්ක) (literally 'hook') which also means argumentative, disputatious, but not quarrelsome.
