    Please edit your post to provide context. On what pages does it appear? What are the words surrounding it? Can you find any examples online?

It probably means verb intransitive . Though I could help you more if you provide a short example.


Abbreviations a dictionary uses are explained in the first pages of a dictionary. It is worthwhile reading these introductoty pages.
