I think "gut" is a fairly uncommon word.

But even there, it is only on the disambiguation page; there is no actual
article for it.

That may be true, but as an American I would say it is uncommon in America
also :-)

A few people use it; see for example:


That site also refers to a gut as an inlet or slough.  Those are much more
common words in America. I wonder who picked "gut" for the Garmin usage?
