Thanks a lot for this. I really enjoyed this book, and was very happy
about the impact.

Yes, the words are canon, no doubt. I have no idea why they are missing,
so I guess that's an error. Strange enough, only the word {wev} is
listed and marked with ta'puq mach as the source.

I'm not sure, but I think that's quite obvious.

Yeah... I guess that's a simple typo in the wiki. That can happen here
and there. If you discover more of such typos, you can easily register
in the wiki and make the changes yourself. It's very easy.
