Don't worry, I've fixed it. But for future reference, if you add a verb as
a gloss word (which will appear as a headword in the English → Lojban
part of the dictionary), only use the infinitive, not the present tense or
some other form.

Correct: wash, subsidize, print, collect
Wrong: washes, subsidizes, prints, collects
