Does "l'entrig" refer to a concept, rather than something that exists physically?

It doesn't.
I'm only now feeling how much these two words have undergone semantic shift, haha - I didn't really notice until I saw everyone's guesses.

No, not really. It's a rather generic word - you might just find it easier to imagine that it means "thing".

No, but you're thinking along the right lines I reckon [:D]

Some hints in the spoiler.

to ***fu** the *s***
to *ud** the w*****

Not really, although doing this thing might well start or exacerbate an argument.
