(st.k 10/20/1998):  The verb {rach} has been translated variously as "invigorate, fortify, and strengthen" ... When used in reference to a person, the verb {rach} suggests an improvement in health; when used in reference to an inanimate object, say, a mechanical device or the hull of a ship, {rach} also implies improvement or betterment. {rach} is to be distinguished from {tI'} "repair" in two ways: (1) {tI'} is generally not applied to living beings; (2) {tI'} suggests restoration to a previous state, not necessarily improvement. {rach} is also to be distinguished from {Dub} "improve", which seems to be used primarily when what is being enhanced is of a more abstract nature (as when one improves or increases one's status, skill, understanding, etc.).
