Booth

A shelter, made usually of poles fixed upright in the ground, and covered over with green boughs, Genesis 33:17. The great feast of tabernacles, or booths, had its name from the circumstance that the Jews were directed by their law to dwell in booths during the seen days of this feast, Le 23:40-42; Nehemiah 8:14.

Easton's Bible Dictionary
A hut made of the branches of a tree. In such tabernacles Jacob sojourned for a season at a place named from this circumstance Succoth (Genesis 33:17). Booths were erected also at the feast of Tabernacles (q.v.), Leviticus 23:42, 43, which commemorated the abode of the Israelites in the wilderness.
Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
1. (n.) A house or shed built of boards, boughs, or other slight materials, for temporary occupation.

2. (n.) A covered stall or temporary structure in a fair or market, or at a polling place.

BOOTH

booth, booth: The Hebrew word cukkah (rendered in the King James Version "booth" or "booths," eleven times; "tabernacle" or "tabernacles," ten times; "pavilion" or "pavilions," five times; "cottage" once) means a hut made of wattled twigs or branches (Leviticus 23:42 Nehemiah 8:15). In countries where trees are abundant such wattled structures are common as temporary buildings as they can be constructed in a very short time. Cattle were probably housed in them (Genesis 33:17). Such hurriedly-made huts were used by soldiers (2 Samuel 11:11 1 Kings 20:12) and by harvesters-hence, the name feast of "booths" or "tabernacles" (see TABERNACLES, FEAST OF). Job 27:18 uses booth (parallel moth's house) as a symbol of impermanence. Similar huts were erected in vineyards, etc., to protect them from robbers and beasts of prey. The isolated condition of Jerusalem in the time of the prophet Isaiah is compared to a "booth in a vineyard" (Isaiah 18).
