Comment: 1. Older nominative form: "magi". "mågå" was originally the accusative, and this form was then generalized and replaced the nominative. 2. "Mågå" is mostly used about the "inner" belly, the stomach. Cf. "mågå", a verb meaning "able to eat", or "mågå-siuok" (belly-sick) meaning "having a stomach disease".
