Description:

The term 'tuk' entered Common sometime in the late early period as a word for hat, originally referring to a kind of winter hat specifically and competing with other loans, that still exist in the language today, like 'kap' and 'xap├│', as well as the native 'jallua'. For reasons that are not clear, 'tuk' expanded its semantic footprint, becoming in modern High Common the dominant general word for all kinds of head coverings.

It has a life as a skurum verb with a sense of finishing something or 'capping' it.
