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.
