_______________________________________________

(De'vID < MO, 2/17/2018):  For purposes of boQwI' [De'vID's translation program], "definition" would be {jIyweS} "translation, gloss".  It's not a definition like in an English-only (or any-language-only) dictionary (that explains/describes a word's meaning); it's a quick tag to give you an idea of what the word means.  For "entry", Maltz suggests {ghu'lIS} "item in a list".  <...>  Neither {Hal} nor {mung} would be source in the literary sense (which I take to mean where a particular entry in boQwI' comes from).  This would be {nompuq} "authority, evidence, attestation, reference, citation".
