However, DB says sometimes two people will clear a wide field together and then divide it at the time of sowing seed. Those fields are also considered nokogdogkit “adjacent”. Also, there are those with adjacent fields who will clear the fields up to the edge of the other field. In that case they will burn both fields at once and divide them later.] see: longod 1; see fr.: dagkit. 2v To be reached set on fire as a field which is caught on fire by the embers of another field which is being burned.

[Although the example of reserving a horse and setting a date seem similar, DB sees them as different because one chooses a date because of something important.

There is no payment involved in setting a date (or “reserving” a day)] 5v That which is used to guarantee.
