Definition: Intended for interlinear morpheme-level glossing. Join multi-word glosses with (_), e.g. wild_boar; use (space semicolon space) for multiple glosses, e.g. hut ; house ; shack. Used for reversing the dictionary if an e field is not present (or is present but empty); also as an English definition in a formatted dictionary if there is no de field (or it is present but empty).
