Meaning of aluká-it



Empty, deprived of contents, said of husks and pods, especially the emptied kamunsel husks; empty-headed, stupid, brainless. (It is to be noted that the aluká-it are still attached to the plant, but empty through the action of birds or vermin. Otherwise empty pods are called "úpak", the general name for the exterior coating of fruits, as: skin, husk, pod, peel, rind).
