In studying the Tosafos on 6B, I've come across a term I do not fully understand. Could you please explain the technical meaning of the phrase "g'dolah mizos" as it appears in the Tosafos "Lo hachaziro lo yazta" and provide examples of other instances where this phrase is used?

'Gedolah mi'Zos' is similar to 'Kal va'Chomer'. Even in a case where the seller said that he is only selling his field in order to go to Etetz Yisrael (but without any mention of the sale becoming annulled should he not make it), it is considered a valid condition; how much more so where he specifically said 'Return it to me', that his condition will the condition be valid.
