ditch is birat

birat = ditch (Lhaesine pronunciation = BIH-raht) (noun) (Some things Google found for "birat": an uncommon term; unusual masculine first name; an unusual to rare last name; Birat Medical Collage in Biratnagor, Nepal; Birat Gold Cup soccer tournamemt in Nepal; Birat Shoe Company Ltd. in Kathmandu, Nepal; in Indonesian birat means scar; in Serbo-Croatian similar birati means to pick, choose; name of places in Bangladesh, the Philippines and Papua New Guinea; Birat al Jabal is a place in Syria)

This is a re-purposed, redefined word. This word previously, several years ago, meant "left" (direction) in Lhaesine.
