There is a film produced in Hongkong in 2021. The name is 緣路山旮旯. I would like to ask about the construction of some sentences with 旮旯 except 山旮旯. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    It's believed that 旮旯 is cognate with 角落.

山旮旯 is a Cantonese common phrase,

指偏僻的山區 (a remote mountainous area)

旮旯 means 'corner'. It is not used independently by modern Cantonese.

Similar to 黷 (wantonly engage) in 窮兵黷武 is no longer used independently by modern Chinese.


No other comments. Just want to post an alternative answer:
