my dictionary does show it as 囚, but sounds close to yù 狱 of jianyù 监狱. At least that's what helps me remember it

in cantonese, 獄 does not pronounce 'yu', we say "yuk", Vietnamese " ngục". :)

chị đang dùng Từ điển chữ hán, giải thích của "tù" là 囚. as a native cantonese, I heard 囚 not 獄.

If I wanted to express that I am presently AT a prison rather than being incarcerated, would it be "Tôi đang ở một cái tù"?
