Details on the problems with the Expression[edit]

The listed synonyms are: vatten, vattenmassor and farvatten.

  • The second synonym is given in plural, vattenmassa would be the singular form, and is literally body of water.
  • The third synonym (farvatten) does not even match the DefinedMeaning very well, it refers to watercourses, lakes and seas as part of a communication network.
  • The general term for naturally occurring water forming primarily rivers and streams, but also lakes (as long as the water contained in it is moving) is vattendrag, which is not even included. However, this term focuses not on the water as such, but the geographic feature, which I am unsure is an appropriate translation of the DefinedMeaning (see below). --Sannab 11:12, 2 May 2006 (CEST)

Comment on the DefinedMeaning[edit]

I am unsure if the DefinedMeaning The liquid that forms streams, lakes, and seas, and issues from the ground in springs. (Source: WEBSTE) is intended to focus on the water as such or water as a geographical feature. I think this needs to be clarified.--Sannab 11:12, 2 May 2006 (CEST)
