Usage notesEdit

In modern colloquial language, particularly among younger speakers, the verb is often used as a statement of unwillingness or animosity according to the formula orka + <action> similar to how "as if" is used in US English. Example: Orka städa hela huset, "as if I'd clean the whole house". It can also be reduced to just orka as a shorthand response to indicate disinclination to something.
