Arabic translation:كان كل ثقل وزنها لفظيا /شفويا /أو شفها
Explanation:
وهذا يعني أن كل ثقل وزن التدابير يتم على مستوى شفهي لفظي .بمعنى آخر أن التدابير المتخذة تبقى محدودة فيما هو شفهي لفظي ولا تتعداه إلى شيئ آخر.

تلقت تعديلاً مهماً شفهياً


Explanation:
I tend to go with this translation although sometimes " heavily weighted" can mean "was given a high significance". In the context you provided, it should mean " it was heavily adjusted or altered", we notice it's some kind of critique or analysis of the study mentioned. what strengthen my tendency is the word " crude " that follows which can mean " improvised " and "approximated" which mean inaccurate.
