The reason for most of the asterisks is pronouns and the auxiliary. They do not have straightforward English translations at all. For the postpositions, we gave the most common translation, but most of the postpositions have incredibly broad meanings.

Also, for whatever reason, lexd seems to not like it when words end in 'w' or 'an'. I think it might have to do with some potential ambiguity with some endings. For example, सिखावन (sikhāwan) is in NounRoot, so it should be analyzed as sikhāwan<n>, but -an is the plural ending, so I think it tries to match with the plural ending case and freaks out since sikhāw isn't a NounRoot. That or there's some bug in the transliterator, which is definitely possible, since seemingly benign words like ला (lā) also completely fail to be analyzed for no apparent reason.

The final trouble point for a lot of this is that this story comes from the really old source, not the modern source. So a lot of the endings are different, and verbs work completely differently. It took a lot of care to figure out what was ending and what was root since it didn't line up with the modern source most of the time. We were able to add most of the inflections as options into our lexd file the best we could, but some we weren't able to figure out. For example, I think "ना" (nā) is some kind of "should be X'd" suffix, so जप (jap: mutter) becomes जपना (japnā: should be muttered), but it only shows up twice in the story, and isn't in either of the sources, so we weren't sure what to do.
