Usage notes[edit]

Whereas hauras can be used of almost anything brittle, the term hapero is used especially of organic materials that have become brittle over time, such as old newspapers or textiles. Often it indicates extreme weakness, i.e. the material in question may break out of a mere touch. It's hardly ever used figuratively, e.g. a mind or an old person may be hauras, but not hapero.
