(the action of hiding from the rain)

/ duk˨˩ mwɤ˧/
According to Vietnamese Dictionary by Hoàng Phê, “đụt” means “a tool weaved from bamboo which is placed into a net to store the fish people catch” or “stupid and weak”.
However, Southerners also use “đụt” along with “mưa” to refer to the action of “hiding from the rain”.
E.g. Nam đứng trong mái hiên đụt mưa. (Nam stands in the veranda to avoid the rain.)
