I am starting today to revise the entries in the glossary.  In particular, in keeping with my note about metaphors, I am commenting on the metaphors involved in the diverse meanings of each word.  In addition, I adding -- mainly in the bracketed sections -- comments about what I take to be usage suggestions or trends.  I do hope someday to get all the combinations that people have used for various notions added in as well, but that requires a search of the corpus and I have not kept up with that.  Meanwhile, keep an eye on me that I do not wander too far into my own ideas but report accurately what is going on (outside the bracketed sections clearly, inside, too, though).
