“the queen intends to have a swim in the lake”

The noun ul refers specifically to lakes of a wider or circular shape, as opposed to nin, which is used for larger, but especially more elongated lakes. Another word that can be translated as ‘lake’ is meret, which refers specifically to small lakes in the mountains that are visibly located entirely above valley level (e.g., on a small plateau or ridge).
