1)[line 1]והלא מותרו חוזר!VA'HALO MOSARO CHOZER!- [how is it possible to suggest that the reason why Rebbi Eliezer would have considered the produce to be Hukba l'Ma'aser in our Mishnah is because it was verbally designated to be eaten on Shabbos? Even had he actually taken it,] what is leftover can be returned [to the main pile]!

2)[line 3]מעטןMA'ATAN- a large container in which olives are placed to ripen before they are pressed

3)[line 5]חייבCHAYAV- he is obligated [to separate Terumah and Ma'aser before eating from them, even in a temporary fashion]

4)[line 9]מהדר ליהMEHADER LEI- to return them [since they will transfer their Tum'ah to the rest of the olives]

5)[line 12]מוחזרין ועומדין הן!MUCHZARIN V'OMDIN HEN!- they are automatically returned [in the case of our Mishnah; i.e., he has not actually taken them, but only designated them; therefore, they should not be Hukba l'Ma'aser even if he is Tamei and they are not]!

6)[line 26]ורמינהיU'REMINHI- and there appears to be a contradiction [between the explanation we have given for Rebbi Eliezer in the Mishnah and another ruling of his]

13)[line 10]דמאיDEMAI

(a)Produce originating from an Am ha'Aretz (an unlearned Jew who may be lax in his Torah observance; see Berachos 47b) is referred to as Demai ("Da Mai?" - "what is this?").

(b)Terumas Ma'aser and Ma'aser Sheni must be separated from such produce, since a minority of Amei ha'Aretz are not careful to separate these tithes from their produce. One may assume, however, that Terumah Gedolah has been separated, since even an Am ha'Aretz is careful with Terumah due to its stringency. Ma'aser Rishon and Ma'aser Ani are separated from the produce, but may be eaten by the owner (in keeping with the principle of "ha'Motzi me'Chaveiro Alav ha'Re'ayah").

This verse is part of the Tochachah (rebuke).

20)[line 24]השחול והכסולHA'SHACHUL VEHA'KASUL- these are the terms for two blemishes that invalidate an animal as a Korban. The Gemara now proceeds to explain what they are.

(a)A Nazir is one who may not: 1. cut his hair; 2. become Tamei by touching or being in the same room as a corpse; or 3. consume any products of the grapevine. If one vows to become a Nazir without stipulating a time period, his Nezirus lasts for a period of thirty days.

29)[line 31]לקטLEKET

(a)"Leket" refers to stalks of grain that have fallen to the ground while being cut or gathered during the harvest. Such stalks may not be retrieved by their owner, but must be left for the poor to take (Vayikra 19:9-10).
