Grammatical clarifications

At qepHom 2017, the usage of vItlh was explained: [qepHom 2017, page 17: It's used for things that are measurable or quantifiable but not necessarily countable...For things you can count (like people) (as opposed to things you can measure using units of measure, like length or speed), you'd use {law'} almost all the time. But you'd use {vItlh} if the number of whatever it is you're talking about is higher than normal or greater than before or greater than what was expected.]
