I think apiye is lean, do they say piye for lean also? When I look it up, piye is supposed to mean plunder. Are there any other meanings or uses for either of these?

Yes “apiye” or “piye” will translate to lean, to tilt

Li te apiye sou miray la. – She leaned against the wall


And yes, “piye” also means to plunder, to vandalize

Volè yo piye kay la nèt. – The crooks completely vandalized the house.


And when playing hazard games we use “piye”  as a term to determine which player goes first

Ann piyeLet’s see who goes first.
