The headword noun is given first in the nominative plural (probably quoted from somewhere) and then in the nominative singular, the latter glossed.
[1] See LSJ s.v. for the extraordinary range of meanings which -- with equal propriety -- this noun can bear. There are several possibilities for the 'plant' alone, e.g. the aspen and the so-called Judas tree.
