Then what means "a person" in the brackets? Andres 00:06, 30 October 2006 (CET)
Is this a narrower meaning? Andres 00:08, 30 October 2006 (CET)

Then the Dutch definition "Een kwaliteit toewijzen aan (een persoon)." and the translation "toeschrijven" are wrong as far as I can judge. Andres 00:21, 30 October 2006 (CET)

I think the definition should be something like that: "To bestow (a quality or some qualities on something or someone)". Andres 00:21, 30 October 2006 (CET)
