DefinedMeaning talk:rice (395506)
I wanted to add this DM as in the sentence "I eat rice" (je mange du riz). We don't eat the plant, but its grain. Then, I thought to add synonym: "rice" = "rice grain" ("riz" = "grain de riz"), but I'm disturbed by the fact that "rice" seems to be uncountable whereas "rice grain" seems to be countable (same thing in French):
- He ate much rice
- He ate many rice grains.
Do we still consider them as synonyms? Kipcool 12:46, 30 November 2006 (CET)
- It's the same in German: "Reis" is uncountable, "Reiskorn" is countable. I think they should be seperate DMs. The present DM only describes the countable word. --Tosca 23:34, 30 November 2006 (CET)
