Hullo naturalist!

In my understanding:
Meaning of "paoet njéré":
Visualise extricating a palm leaflet-spine from a tied bundle of them (usually used as a broom). The extraction is effected by grabbing the wide-end of the spine (from the “handle” end of the broom).
Thus a blade of “paoet njéré” form would necessarily narrow from the handle (to “emulate” the shape of the spine).
A blade that is opposite to the above (widens towards the tip in the same manner) is referred to as “beubeut njéré”.
BTW, an example of "paoet njéré" blade form is your post:
