 Rashi 83a DH Bein Acherim she'Hisitu Osan:
1) [line 17] HEISETAN
(b) In all other types of Tum'ah besides Zav, Zavah, Nidah and Yoledes, the Tamei who moves a person or object that is Tahor does *not* Metamei the person or object. Only Zav, etc. can Metamei people or objects in this way. According to Rebbi Akiva, however, even Avodah Zarah can Metamei people or objects in this way.
2) [line 19] ZAVIN
(b) A woman who has a show of blood for three consecutive days during her 11 days of Zivah, becomes a Zavah Gedolah, and is also an Av ha'Tum'ah.
(c) A Zav and a Zavah, like a Nidah and a 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/ha'Zavah (or the *Tachton*, of a Zav or Zavah.) An object under a Zav or a Zavah becomes a Midras only if it was made for lying, sitting, or leaning upon. Earthenware objects (Klei Cheres) cannot become Midras.
(d) A person who *touches* (Maga) or *carries* (Masa) either a Midras or a Zav or Zavah themselves, along with the clothes he is wearing and other utensils (except for earthenware utensils) that he is touching at the time, get the status of Rishon l'Tum'ah.
(e) Utensils or clothes which lie *above* the Zav or Zavah also get the status of a Rishon l'Tum'ah, whether they touch them or not. These are called the *Elyon* of a Zav or Zavah.
(f) The Chachamim decreed that non-Jews have the status of Zavim even if they never had a discharge of Zov or a show of blood. The decree was instituted so that Jews should stay away from them and not learn their non-Jewish ways.
3) [last line] B'KAF MOZNAYIM - in a balance scale
5) [line 11] K'MAN D'MISBERA - as if it is broken
8) [line 26] SHERETZ B'CHEADASHA
9) [line 27] MES B'CHEZAYIS
(b) If a person or utensil becomes Tamei by touching a Mes, he must wait seven days to go to the Mikvah. On the third and seventh days, Mei Chatas (ashes of the Parah Adumah mixed in spring water) is sprinkled on the person or utensil. The water is sprinkled by means of three hyssops that have been bound together and dipped into the water. Afterwards, the person or utensil is immersed in a Mikvah to complete the purification process.
10) [line 40] "DERECH ONIYAH V'LEV YAM" - "the way of a ship in the midst of the sea" (Mishlei 30:19) - A ship is compared to the sea in this verse, and the Mishnah states (Kelim 17:13) "Kol sheba'Yam Tahor" - "Anything in the sea is Tahor," [except for those things mentioned in that Mishnah]. Our Mishnah infers from this verse that a ship is Tahor.
11) [line 42] MITALTEL MALEI V'REIKAN - it is carried full and empty
