Should those DMs be merged? --Tosca 20:29, 26 September 2006 (CEST)

Hmm, in tlfi (fr dict), they make a distinction between:
  • the human mouth as an element of the face: "he has a beautiful mouth" ~ lips
  • the human mouth as a cavity for eating/breathing: "he put a lot of food in his mouth"
  • the mouth of any animal as a cavity for eating/breathing (in French, the word "gueule" apply in this case, and not for human (unless you're being impolite))
it seems that the 2 DMs we have here are a mix between the def 2 and 3 of this dictionary... So, defs to rewrite? Kipcool 13:55, 27 September 2006 (CEST)
In German the word "Mund" refers exclusively to the human mouth. And in the dictionaries I checked (Duden + DWDS) they combine def 1 and 2 into one. Schwierig. I'll try to rewrite it. --Tosca 17:11, 27 September 2006 (CEST)
