MeaningsEdit

I am afraid that the following definition:

2. Accidental, additional, appearing casually.

should be splitted into two parts:

2. Accidental, appearing casually.
3. Additional.

Because I see two different meanings in my English-Russian dictionary. Do you agree? -- Andrew Krizhanovsky

No. The definitions aren't distinct in English. The reason your Russian dictionary has this separate is that the concepts are separate in Russian. We group definitions of English words based on their meanings in English. --EncycloPetey 05:30, 20 October 2010 (UTC)
OK. Thanks! -- Andrew Krizhanovsky 05:34, 20 October 2010 (UTC)
