*1*) [line 4] ZEISIM VA'ANAVIM YOCHICHU - that is, the Tana Kama proves that even animal milk, which is fit for a person to drink, should need Ratzon (consent) to be Machshir from the fact that olive oil and wine are only Machshir with Ratzon although they are fit for grownups.
2) [line 1] PAGA'IN - (O.F. prunes) plums
6) [line 18] KIDESH (KIL'AYIM)
7) [line 20] ARAVYA - Arabia
13) [line 33] TZICHTZUCHEI SHEMEN - drops of diluted oil
*15*) [line 33] D'ASI BASAR ITZATZTA - the Mochal that flows after the olives have been packed together in the vat for a few days. (Such Mochal does not have drops of oil, but the owner is pleased with it.)
16) [line 38] ZAV
(b) A Zav causes food items that he touches to become a Rishon l'Tum'ah if they have had a Hechsher l'Tum'ah (see next entry). Even if he does not touch the food (as in the case of milking a goat), he is Metamei it through Heseit, otherwise known as Tum'as Masa, if he is carries it or causes it to be moved.
(c) A Zav, Zavah, Nidah and Yoledes who moves a person or object that is Tahor is Metamei the person or object. (Only Zav, Zavah, Nidah and Yoledes can be Metamei people or objects in this manner.)
17) [line 39] ISKASHER (HECHSHER OCHLIN)
(b) The food can only become Tamei if the owner of the food was pleased with the liquid that wetted his food. This is learned from the Pasuk "v'Chi Yutan Mayim Al Zera..." - "If water has been placed on seeds and then the dead body [of a Sheretz] fell upon them, the seeds are Tamei." (Vayikra 11:38) The word "Yutan" in the Pasuk is written without a Vav and it can therefore be read, "Yiten" -- "he places." However, according to the Mesorah it is read "Yutan" -- "it was placed." From this we learn that water or other liquids that fall on the food must be desirable to the owner of the food, *as though* he himself applied them.
(c) It is necessary only for the owner to desire the liquid; he need not desire that the liquid come into contact with the food. That is, even if the owner desires the liquid for an entirely different purpose, if the liquid later comes into contact with food it will enable the food to become Tamei. On the other hand, if the owner only intended to dispose of the liquid it does not enable the food to become Tamei, since only liquids that are significant can cause Hechsher.
18) [line 39] TIPAH HA'MELUCHLECHES AL PI HA'DAD - the first drop of milk that comes out of the teat causes the Hechsher, since it is considered a Mashkeh.
