Thanks for these.

Here's a useful note for talking about your {yotlhmey}:

HQ 12.7 (p.7-8):  {qa'rI'} is also used for the end of bounded space which is seen as having length even it is not enclosed space. Thus, it is used for the end of a road, the end of a bridge, the end of a long field. (Maltz didn't think it would mean much of anything to refer to the {qa'rI'} of a square field.)
