More Information

Any place specifically designated for the performance of a specific task (or tasks) is a yaH. A stage is the yaH for the performance of plays or, perhaps, music. A football field is the yaH for a football game. A laboratory is a scientist's yaH. And, of course, on a ship, a yaH is a duty station. If context isn't enough to clarify what sort of yaH it is, you can say things like much yaH, QoQ yaH, tamlerQeD yaH, etc.
