It stands for דיבור המתחיל Dibur Hamaschil, not דברי המתחיל divrei hamaschil, which is a very common mistake. I heard this from Rabbi Yisroel Belsky. Called it a mistake were his words, not mine. He explained that divrei refers to the words of someone in particular. For instance, you would say divrei Rashi, meaning the words of the Rashi. Dibur refers ...

To flesh out Gershon's answer a bit more: You wouldn't just say "Rashi's comment on page 84a", as that would have you looking all over the page. Instead, each comment of Rashi is prefaced by the Talmudic phrase on which he's commenting. (In some newer editions it's bold or a different font, to help you locate it more easily.) This is known as דברי המתחיל, ...

ד"ה = Divrei Hamaschil / Hamatchil. It means the Rashi begins with these words. דברי / Divrei = the words המתחיל / Hamaschil / Hamatchil = that Rashi begins with This helps one find which Rashi the reference is referring to.

This is in a Mishna in Berachos 9:2. The meaning (as stated by Rabbi Ovadia Bartenura there) is that He does good to me and good to others.

Well to quote Artscroll Hakadosh: "מי יימר דמגנבא-who is to say that [the deposit] will be stolen" "ואם תימצי לומר דמגנבא-and even if you can say who is to say with certainty that it will be stolen" "מי יימר דמשתכח גנב -who is to say that the thief will be apprehended?" "ואי משתכח גנב-and even if the thief is apprehended," "מי יימר ...

The first generation of Amoraim didn't spend much time learning Taharos, but in the times of Abaye there were thirteen Yeshivos learning it. Nevertheless there is no Gemara Bavli on most of Taharos, Kodshim and Zraim. However, the Gemara does discuss the principles of Taharos in other areas. It seems to be placed in the same way that Agadatta gets placed. ...

The Babylonian Talmud does not have Gemarah for the majority of the tractates in Zer'aim, the first of the six Mishnah "orders". As a matter of fact, only tractate Brachot has Gemarah. There are other tractates as well, such as Avot, that have no Gemarah. I don't recall the full list. Regarding why Brachot is the only tractate in Zera'im having Genarah, I ...

The Gemara on each "snippet of Mishna" is often pretty long anyway (see for example Rosh Hashana - second mishna is on 16a, or Kiddushin - second mishna on 14b), so that wouldn't really narrow things down much. Plus there are places where all of the mishnayos for the perek are jammed together at the beginning (last perek of Brachos, 1st perek of Sanhedrin), ...
