DefinedMeaning talk:poisonous (375775)
There is a principal problem here. How to keep apart the description of the word and its definition? Clearly, "describing something as acting as a poison" and "acting as a poison" are different meanings. On the other hand, "acting as a poison" is ambiguous.
Besides, poisons need not act as poisons, so we should mention not acting as poison but capability of acting as poison. So I propose: "Capable of acting as a poison." Andres 07:30, 1 November 2006 (CET)
