A Note On Additional Translations

I thought a couple of more clarifying translations were in order due to the high volume of irritant and untranslated disorders there are in the field. Translation viii is a little more complex than the surface translation would indicate. I was also considering dependent and incompletely, or improperly, weaned, but eventually settled on clinger. The addition of as to apron strings was also considered, but in the end thrown out. You should think of those other two expressions as synonymous with the Plain English, and descriptive, term clinger.
