Meaning of tahámlok



A rope made of rags and used to drive or keep off mosquitoes; to use or make such a contrivance. The tahámlok is lighted like a taper and either carried in the hand or fastened conveniently somewhere nearby. The resulting smoke keeps the mosquitoes at a distance. Maglúbid ka sing naúg kay itahámlok ko. Twist some rags together, for I am going to use them against mosquitoes. (see tabó, hámlok, lamók, namók).
