Definition: This field is available for developing a monolingual dictionary. While somewhat meaningless (a vernacular gloss for a vernacular word), this is a useful place to store the explanations a researcher is given by a language assistant concerning the meaning of the headword or lexeme. Later these will be formulated into a more exact definition and transfer to the dv field.

Definition: The English version of the h field and probably the one to use first. Differentiate and catalog the semantic domains of an entry, being careful to not let the English force or mask the vernacular relations. Moving to the vernacular terms (given in h field) as early as possible is best. Use a Range Set.
