Pesachim 81

(a) A Zav, a man who emits Zov two or three times (see Background to Shabbos 84:1), whether it is emitted in one day or in two or three consecutive days, is an Av ha'Tum'ah. Zov is a clear discharge with the appearance of the white of a sterile or spoiled egg, in contrast with semen, which has the consistency of fresh egg white. Zov can also be a pus-like discharge resembling the liquid from barley dough or soft barley batter.
(b) A Zav must count seven "clean" days in which he sees no Zov in order to start his purification process, as it states in Vayikra 15:13. On the seventh day or afterwards, he must immerse in a spring. When the sun sets he becomes Tahor, if he did not emit Zov again beforehand (ibid.).
(c) If a Zav emits Zov only two times, he does not bring a Korban. If he emitted Zov three times, whether it is emitted in one day or in two or three consecutive days, he has to bring a Korban after he becomes Tahor in order to enter the Beis ha'Mikdash and to eat Korbanos.

2) [line 8] MISHKAV U'MOSHAV
(a) A Zav and a Zavah, as well as a Nidah or Yoledes, can cause objects that are *under* them to become Avos ha'Tum'ah whether they touch them or not. The objects become Tamei Midras (lit. an object that is treaded upon), otherwise known as Mishkav or Moshav ha'Zav (or the *Tachton*, of a Zav). An object (other than earthenware objects, or Klei Cheres) that is under a Zav or a Zavah becomes a Midras only if it was made for lying, sitting, or leaning upon.
(b) A person who *touches* (Maga) or *carries* (Masa) either a Midras or a Zav or Zavah themselves gets the status of Rishon l'Tum'ah, and so do the clothes he is wearing and other utensils (except for earthenware utensils) that he is touching at the time.

3) [line 26] B'SHOFA'AS - when her blood continuously flowed until the third day


4) [line 7] B'MECHUVERES ALAV - when it is clear to him (that he became Tamei)
5) [line 32] MEFURAK - dismembered
6) [line 35] TA'UN - if he was carrying a load
7) [line 43] B'AFEILAH - in a dark place
8) [line 43] B'NEKIKEI HA'SELA'IM - in the crevices of rocks
9) [line 46] HA'BIRAH - the Beis ha'Mikdash
10) [line 46] ATZEI HA'MA'ARACHAH - the wood that is set aside for burning Korbanos on the Mizbe'ach

11) [line 48] HA'TZAIKANIN - the miserly
12) [last line] TZOFIM - (a) the name of a village on a mountain from where the Beis ha'Mikdash can be seen (RASHI Pesachim 49a), and further from which the Beis ha'Mikdash cannot be seen (RASHI here); (b) (lit. scouts, lookout) the points from which Yerushalayim is still visible. A person who walks outwards from these points in any direction can no longer see Yerushalayim (TOSFOS Pesachim 49a DH Im)
