{{Attention|An object which one can sit on - Far too vague|DefinedMeanings}}

I agree that the definition is too vague. I believe a seat is usually intented for sitting on. // habj 23:19, 9 August 2006 (CEST)

But now maybe it's too specific: An hard, solid object (usually made of wood, metal or plastic) with a flat, horizontal section that is made for a person to sit upon. is how I would define a chair. Isn't a seat more generic ? -- Sergio.ballestrero 00:49, 10 August 2006 (CEST)
Good point! Chairs are made to be sat upon, seats are just things one can sit on (like, a log could count as a seat). I'll fix it now - thanks! —Celestianpower Háblame 11:24, 10 August 2006 (CEST)
Hm, is there not 2 DM:s here, cannot seat refer to anything you can (and do) sit on (sittplats) as well as the part of a chair or sofa or other furniture intending for sitting that you actually sit on (sits) ?--Sannab 13:39, 10 August 2006 (CEST)
Thinking further on DM1, it seems to me that the current Definition focuses a bit too much on the object that is sat on, while it should perhaps focus more on the room/place/space to sit on? --Sannab 14:18, 10 August 2006 (CEST)
