[jbovlaste] buckwheat

"buckwheat" is a gloss of three words: {xruba}, {xrixruba}, and {gruxruba}. 
The first refers to any member of the family Polygonaceae; the second and 
third refer specifically to buckwheat, and are synonyms. {xruba} currently is 
the best guess for "buckwheat", and has no gloss for "sorrel" or "rhubarb", 
which have their own words ({stanyxruba} and {pezyxruba} IIRR; neither is in 
jbovlaste). So someone looking up "buckwheat" gets the general term {xruba}, 
and someone looking up "sorrel" or "rhubarb" gets nothing. How should this be
