Do you have in mind legal ramifications other than the one you linked? Is there reason to believe that the general answer to this question is not covered by the generalized parts of the yibum question's?

@IsaacMoses That's why I didn't vote to migrate! On-topic there does not necessarily imply off-topic here (which probably contributes to that site having so much trouble existing).

comment Berur halachah - what is this called in English?
Good question, but probably belongs on Hebrew.SE. But la"d it could be "legal clarification" (literal), "due diligence" (impressionistic).

Perhaps including the parallel analysis in the question would strengthen it. Or it might reveal more about it for you and the future answerer to learn from.

I'm no expert, but it's definitely Yiddish. It uses the word "Yiddishkeit" for example.

comment Why are the names of some mitzvos changed to from “al” or “lo” to “bal”
Isn't "because we speak Aramaic" a sufficient answer (at least for some values of "we")?

בל is an Aramaic synonym for אל. I assume it is related to Hebrew בלי and בלתי. Page 170

comment Is there a “5 second rule” for foods becoming non-Kosher?
+1 because that's what I was going to say! (I think I only know the famous stuff, so this is literally the only halacha I have ever heard from that source.)
