Based on the English glosses, {mIS} "be confused, mixed up" just means any
sort of mental confusion where you don't comprehend or understand what's

impairment, where you're confused enough that you can't even think straight
and don't know what to say or do. (Dictionary.com uses "stupefied" to
define "dazed", for instance.)

don't follow," you're {mIS}.
If your response to something is "Huh? How...? I don't-- what?", you're
