More Information

In the Krotmag dialect, this word can mean "possibility", because it sounds like their pronunciation of DuH.

The word list of KGT shows nuH as "possibility" without any remark as being regional, dialect or slang. This might be an error, because the main body explains that "the regular word for "possibility" is DuH" (KGT p. 110) The usage of nuH for "possibility" is metaphorically in the expression "Consider every possibility" or "Consider every option." (KGT p. 109)
