DefinedMeaning talk:a (7428)
- What sense there is to give such a definition? Who would understand this? Andres 13:03, 27 October 2006 (CEST)
- This doesn't really sound right. I can understand what it's trying to say - that and can mean about additional when used as a conjunction, but the definitions for such usage are already made "Used to connect two homogeneous words or phrases." It seems like an unnecessary definition to me. -Rappo 15:14, 27 October 2006 (CEST)
- I guess that it might mean the uses such as in "two and two is four". Then, of course, it connects two homogeneous words, but the meaning is special. So, the very definition "Used to connect two homogeneous words or phrases" is too unspecific as it doesn't specify the meaning. For example, "or" connects homogeneous words too but its meaning is entirely different. Andres 10:07, 28 October 2006 (CEST)
This article (a (7428)) needs attention because:
It has been added to this category for attention. Thank you for your patience.
This definition "Conjunction (additive)" is redundant with:
- along with: Used to connect two homogeneous words or phrases.
- and: Used at the end of a list to indicate the last item.
(and I wonder about those two as well, other dictionaries I looked at do not distinguish these two senses). --InfoCan 22:26, 22 March 2012 (CET)
- hmm I am also not sure whether the two other DMs are different. I would need to think about it in detail.
- concerning the current DM of course, since the definition is such that the actual meaning cannot really be understood (and what can be understood of it is similar to another DM that already exists), I would tend to propose merge and delete (i.e. delete after making sure that all the translations are already in the other DM). --Kip 20:45, 29 March 2012 (CEST)
Out of sync
The translations into the following languages are probably redundant, as explained above. If there is a better DefinedMeaning that these words can go into, please delete the ones given here. --InfoCan 16:57, 30 March 2012 (CEST)
