Is this in the vocabulary list in KGT? If so, it doesn't belong 
in the New Words List, but then, somehow I missed it for my own 
word list, and it is missing from Holtej's pojwI'. I don't have 
KGT with me right now. So, where is it in KGT? What is so 
obscure about it that at least two of us missed it?

Thanks. I'll try to work on this tonight. This is a big help.

That's already in the New Words List. This is the kind of thing 
I'm good at catching; very methodical in my own way. Meanwhile, 
I simply have not invested the time to sweep through the text 
and catch all the words not in the word list.

So many words, so little time...
