comment What else can “Fifteen cubits from above” in Gen 7:20 mean?
I did some furthur research, comparing what I could find in my books and on the internet. It looks to me like the word is an adverb meaning 'atop.'

Thanks Monica. The dagesh forte is a dot in the middle of the following consonant. If the first mem of the word [ מִלְמַעְלָה] was 'from' [mem-nun] it would have the lamed in the middle of the lamed, doubling the consonant when the nun merges with the lamed.
