Philip Newton (3/22/2012):  Someone (De'vID jonpIn?) asked Marc Okrand about {Ding} at the qepHom wa'maHDIch (2011) in Saarbrücken. I seem to recall that he agreed that it was intransitive (the spinning thing {Ding}'s, and the one who spins it {DIngmoH}'s it), but am not sure whether the answer might not have been the characteristical noncommittal instead.

bav 		orbit (v)
tlhe' 	turn (v)
jIr 		rotate, twirl [i.e. a bat'leth] (v)

On this list *{DIngwI'} has been used for "top (dreydl, s'vivon)" esp. WRT to *{weQlop} Hannukah.
