Transcription Notes:
There are several instances Po-da-wahd-min side of the page where an editor has used blue pen to correct the translation, often by using an "insert" symbol. On some of these occasion that symbol is accompanied by a notation of "h/a". On the occasions that it is not accompanied by such a notation, it is possible that the same insertion is intended. In all cases, the "^" in the transcription should not be considered diacritic marks associated with the language, but rather instances in which an editor did not complete the process of insertion.
