Todays words..

Todays Artscroll words are:
1. potsherd - this is a translation of the word "CHERES" in todays context meaning a worthless document. Page 32b1 note 6.
Encarta says-a fragment of pottery, especially one found at an archaeological site
2. forestall - yeah, I know it only means to stall
Encarta says-to prevent or hinder somebody from doing something, or something from happening, by acting in advance.
Page 33b1, note 1.
Have thesaurus, will travel!

I'd like to know if the final editors know the meanings of all the words.
