KGT 97:  The general term for a pot is {'un}. Pots that may be put on top of a fire in order to heat their contents are made of metal ({baS}); others may be made of either metal or ceramic material ({nagh} [literally, "stone"]). A {bargh} is probably the most frequently used pot. It is rather large and has a flattened bottom.

KGT 27:  For example, while a large, flat-bottomed pot usually called a {bargh}, in some regions it is a {vutmeH 'un} ("pot for preparing [food]"), sometimes shortened to simply {vut'un}.

'un  			pot (n)
bargh 		flat-bottomed pot (n)

chor			ceramic flat-bottomed pot (regional) (n)
