In following excerpt from the definition of durkhfirn does the 'decision, law' field marker in parenthesis apply to BOTH 'enforce' and 'apply' -- or only to the latter:
enforce, apply (decision, law)

Is this rule (it applies to both or just the one closest) applied throughout the dictionary.

Note: I own the hardcopy version and the User's Guide does not address this issue (at least that I could find). It would be helpful to address this issue in a future edition of the Dictionary.

ביז

Kadya Molodowsky entitled a novel "Fun Lublin Biz New York". Why would she choose "biz" over "keyn" or some other preposition. To me, "biz" carries a lot of time as well as space. Am I just spinning wheels?

Also -- "actually" (especially when used to point out a contrast to what's expected or assumed).

I wonder if there is an error in the entry for 'veln zikh': the second person plural (vilt) is used in two places where the subject is 'es'. Shouldn't it be 'vil'?

"I don't mind"

I was taught that to say that something doesn't matter to me ("I don't mind") we say עס מאַכט מיר נישט אױס.

I have also heard עס האַרט מיך נישט

Have others heard azoy? I can't find any matching dictionary definitions for either.

Shouldn't "marker" (such as: felt-tipped marker) be translated as מאַרקירער?
