"Tell the Huron dogs to howl louder, if they wish a Delaware to find them in the woods, where they burrow like foxes, instead of hunting like warriors.
— Передай гуронским собакам — пусть воют погромче, если хотят, чтобы делавар разыскал их в лесу, где они прячутся, как лисицы, вместо того чтобы охотиться, как подобает воинам.

"Defend the outworks before retreating to the citadel!" cried Borroughcliffe; "'tis the game of war, and shows science: but had you kept closer to your burrow, the rabbits might now have all been frisking about in that pleasant abode.
— Защищай передние укрепления, прежде чем укрыться в крепости! — подтвердил Борроуклиф. — Верно, такова военная наука. Но если бы вы как следует притаились в своей кроличьей норе, то и по сей час резвились бы на свободе.

Because she turned and begun to burrow back into the crowd again, and when the cars drove off with the nigger and the Jefferson law and the folks looked around, she was gone.
Потом повернулась, обратно зарылась в толпу, а когда машины с Нигером и с полицией джефферсонской уехали и люди оглянулись, ее уже не было.

I felt as a rabbit might feel returning to his burrow and suddenly confronted by the work of a dozen busy navvies digging the foundations of a house.
Я испытал то, что чувствует кролик, возвратившийся к своей норке и Вдруг обнаруживший, что землекопы срыли до основания его жилище.

Entrust himself to the rabbit's burrow with its potentialities of suffocation, possibly to be buried alive in some cunningly contrived human trap!
Надо было нырнуть в эту нору, где он мог задохнуться, быть заживо похороненным в какой-нибудь дьявольской ловушке!

Knowing, however, that Karl Ivanitch was fond of writing verses, I stole softly upstairs to burrow among his papers, and found, among a number of German verses, some in the Russian language which seemed to have come from his own pen.
Зная, что Карл Иваныч любил списывать стишки, я стал потихоньку рыться в его бумагах и в числе немецких стихотворений нашел одно русское, принадлежащее, должно быть, собственно его перу.

H pylori has a spiral shape and a screw-like motion that enables it to burrow into the mucous gel of the stomach and set up residence on the stomach lining.
Н. pylori обладает спиралевидной (буравчатой) формой, которая позволяет ей проникать глубоко в слизь, покрывающую желудок и «устраиваться на жилье» в подслизистом слое желудка.

Poor darlings! why your children even won't take action; and don't you care to go back to burrowing, burrowing underground again in the old tracks?"
