Re: [Czechlist] farák, farat
- I don´t know this mining terminology very well but "fárat" means to go down to a mine, "farák" could be a miner´s denim or overall (if weared), maybe a lamp or a kind of tool (when carried). Does anyone know better? Both come probably from German "(an-, ein-)fahren".

Subject: [Czechlist] farák, farat
This is not for a translation job, so it's not urgent. I just can't
find these terms in any dictionary, and I can't locate my Smirbuch.
I'm reading a story in which a prisoner seems to be wearing or
carrying a "farák" and two people "farat" together.
What do these words mean?
