I thought the first one should be called the "morphemic meaning", but I am worried people may not relate to it. We could also call it the syntactic meaning. Jokyab's explanation in translation: "The morphemic meaning is the painstaking explanation given by means of the declensions, particles and so on, just of the meaning of each morpheme and is stated in terms of the authoritative scriptures on grammar. The morphemic meaning is also known as the word-for-word meaning." (Tib. p.88 l.4-) What do you think? --Gyurmé 12:53, 16 July 2011 (UTC)
