    Everything depends on the context. If it is reference to an elephant, then chobot may be correct. Generally, trup is correct from a medical or official

      Everything depends on the context.

      If it is reference to an elephant, then "chobot" may be correct.

      Generally, "trup" is correct from a medical or official point of view.

      However, among Americans speaking black dialect, it sometimes means "zadek" (by analogy with the trunk [UK boot] of a car), as when a black American man says, "I like a woman with some junk in the trunk!" meaning he likes women with larger buttocks.
