    I hate compound verbs in Japanese. They make no sense and there's no short cut for learning them

    I'm sure Doug brought it up from watching pr0n. That's a pretty common way of saying "to swallow".

    My contributions:

    落ち込む -- to become depressed
    駆け込む -- to rush in
    巻き込む -- to roll up, to engulf

    巻き込む is my favorite because they use it to describe the action of trucks goofing up their turning radius and oops! destroying a fellow motorist.
