One of the most significant findings of the reconstruction of the Yibu chapter of the LLSL was that, with a handful of exceptions, almost every single entry of this Sino-Mongol glossary was copied from somewhere else. However, there are nine identified entries, for which an external source was not identifiable, thus they can be treated as original entries of the work. These entries are mostly toponyms and ethnonyms copied from other chapters of the LLSL, and there are three other words not belonging to either of these categories. As the number of original entries is extremely low compared to the approximately 1400 entries in LLSL, they do worth a short investigation on their characteristics.
