oronejar
conjugació

[deriv. anòmal de la variant oroneta, oron(et)ejar]

[®envejar ] v intr Volar d'un costat a l'altre i en eixams, de manera semblant a les orenetes.

Here is my context:

Quan es coneix l’obra de [pintor], les geografies del poder del temps i de l’espai i les relacions amb la segmentació de parcel·les que degluteixen tant l’habitatge i el paisatge genuïns, com els camins i trajectes, s’identifiquen amb elements que oronegen, de components constructius, de peces que conformen la suma de forces d’una sociologia visual.

Explanation:
I find the glosbe dictionary quite useful when I'm translating from Catalan though I'm not sure if this definition fits.

After further research, I think 'linger' could work.

I've also found 'hang in the air' and 'to be suspended above', though I still think linger is a good option.

Thanks for the help--it was super helpful. I've gone with 'whiz about' in this context. I felt like hover and linger didn't capture the flying back and forth in swarms. :P

Notes to answerer
Asker: I wasn't familiar with glosbe, thanks. I currently have 'flit about' placeholding in the sentence, but I'm not in love with it and don't feel like these cut it here either. I guess I will sleep on it.
