(qepHom 2015, p.14):  In medical usage, however, doctors and so on make a distinction between {mej'aD} "artery" and {paw'aD} "vein". Maltz said that he thought that earlier these were {mejmeH 'aD} and {pawmeH 'aD}, but over time they were shortened.

(qurgh, 8/15/2016):  Marc said about [{vuj} "expel, eject"] that it's for physically ejecting or expelling things only. It doesn't cover the meaning of "eject" or "expel" when a person is asked to leave somewhere and does so through their own ability (he was ejected from the club so he left and went home, the principal expelled the student), however it does count if the bouncer/teacher picks the person up and physically throws them out of the building." 

tlheD 		depart (v)
DoH 		back away from, back off, get away from (v)
nargh 		escape, eject (v)
Haw' 		flee, get out (v)
qeD 		vacate (v)
choS 		desert (v)

paw		arrive (v)
'el 		enter (v)
