Slovenian term or phrase: jama
I'm guessing this is a Slovenian word. Can anyone confirm this and tell me what it means in the context (either in English or Italian)? It appears in the following text about mythical creatures:

"La cultura popolare ha domesticato l’ambiente dando nomi ai luoghi e legando storie ai punti più salienti. Storie tanto più vive quanto più i luoghi erano carichi di suggestione. E come la Krivapekno čelò, una grotta nei pressi di San Leonardo, così non c’è ***jama*** che non possedesse richiami ad esseri mitici (le Krivapete, le Vile o il dispettoso piccolo Škrat che secondo molte leggende è la creatura non voluta e sepolta di nascosto dalla madre o il neonato morto senza battesimo), storie di violenza e di defunti non collocati, riunioni di streghe o di briganti, presenza di tesori nascosti e custoditi con cura da spiriti o da mostri"
