Oh yes, I did know about those (and I'm grateful for your reminder of them!). I suppose I'm more thinking that we have {HuD} and {ngech} for hills and valleys, but for open flat land like a steppe or plain or prairie, I wasn't sure if {yotlh} would be appropriate, since KGT seems to imply that it's a cultivated plot of land:

"The verb {yob} ("harvest") is used to refer to gathering up plants or plant parts, whether from a field ({yotlh}) that has been sown or out in the wild." (KGT p.89)

I've been using {Hatlh} as a stopgap, but it'd be nice to know what the semantic range is on these words.
