RFV-sense "to deduce, to conclude". Tagged by the person who added the sense, but not listed. Pinging some recently-active users who know Hebrew, who may know if it's valid: @Julien Daux, Wikitiki89. - -sche (discuss) 17:19, 1 May 2017 (UTC)

I've added one quote. The meaning exists (compare hashlakhá of the same root meaning "consequence", "ramification") but is less common than the third and especially first meaning and so is relatively difficult to find attestations for, but I'll see if I can get some more. — Kleio (t · c) 17:47, 1 May 2017 (UTC)
Just note that this sense was taken from Morfix, so the fact that it exists in Morfix means nothing. But thanks for the quotes, I was having trouble finding any. --WikiTiki89 17:59, 1 May 2017 (UTC)
Right, point is that Morfix rarely adds nonsense in my experience, so it's at least a good indication. I just added a third quote though, so it should count as attested now I think. Gotta say though I'm not 100% sure about how to exactly render some of these in English, and the second quote I couldn't even get the name of the author and the article (Google Books snippet view sucks), just the issue and name of the magazine/journal it was in. — Kleio (t · c) 18:19, 1 May 2017 (UTC)
Translations don't have to sound good, they just have to help readers understand the Hebrew. --WikiTiki89 18:27, 1 May 2017 (UTC)
There's also another meaning: "to influence", "to impact", as in להשליך על התוצאות, להשליך על הבחירה בין... Morfix and Sapir don't have this meaning, but Milog does. —Julien D. (talk) 12:42, 2 May 2017 (UTC)
