How do we know that the word “food”includes drinking?  Does our mishna support that understanding?  Why in the cases in the mishna where one detailed a number of things that are forbidden, do we assume that one meant to create a separate oath for each one and not that the person meant to exclude other things from the oath?  How does an expressive oath differ from an oath denying that one has an item of another in one’s possession?  The debate regarding an oath that combines forbidden and permitted items discussed previously in now discussed more in depth.
