From the source:
字: character (traditional form)
pīnyīn: standard pronunciation in pīnyīn romanization
MC: ASCII-friendly Middle Chinese transcription
OC: Old Chinese reconstruction in the Baxter-Sagart system, in two forms: (1) a convenient, user-friendly form that omits information about uncertainties in the reconstruction, followed (where necessary) by (2) a reconstruction in curly brackets which indicates more explicitly which parts of the reconstruction are less secure. For some items there are remarks about possible dialect developments.
gloss: a simple gloss intended for identification only; for more accurate information about meaning, one of the large standard dictionaries should be consulted.
GSR: the letter and number of the item in Karlgren’s Grammata serica recensa; items which do not appear in GSR are usually assigned an appropriate number, without a letter.
