I don't see the point of sending you from alemen -> (to) alts when there are differences between them. E.g., "nokh alts" and "nokh alemen" have different definitions.

דערשלאָגן

I think it's important that there also be a definition given that has to do directly with the verb shlogn -- like "beaten down, crushed, oppressed," something like that. Something more equivalent to the French option of "abattu" given here, which is more in the same semantic field as dershlogn.

דורכפֿירן

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.

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).
