whole - Not divided in parts.
This doesn't imply a part of speech. In languages other than English, "whole" can have different forms in different types of speech and the forms will still be correct for this definition. Each definition should imply a particular part of speech (having different parts of speech under one definition feels very strange, un-dictionary-like). ~~helix84 ✉ 12:41, 29 November 2010 (UTC)
- I am not sure if I understand you correctly. For me, "not divided in parts" implies that it is an adjective ("divided" is a past participle having the same grammatical function as an adjective). Maybe this is wrong?
- And we do want to have one definition for each part of speech.
- Additionally, we can add the part of speech in the annotations to avoid any unclarity. --Kip 21:55, 2 December 2010 (UTC)
