I am very much in the loop. I was there at qep'a', and I have a copy
of the booklet from which those images were produced. I read that part
as saying that {pa'logh} and {tuch} are the preferred terms, in
contrast to {'op ret} and {'op pIq}. That is why I called the {'op
ret} phrase "odd".

I might be misinterpreting it, and I'm trying to reread it without prejudice.
