Talk:diamond in the rough
Isn't there another definition?
When I think "Diamond in the rough," I think not only the current definition, but also an exceptionally good item surrounded by garbage, literally like a diamond in a pile of rubble. An example of this would be someone who joins adultfriendfinder.com looking for a soulmate, or someone who can actually put up a good debate on Youtube.
Shouldn't this definition also be added? After all, a dictionary becomes obsolete as soon as it's printed BECAUSE people continue to find new words and definitions.
- If we just let everyone add new meanings they invented for existing words, we would end up with a useless chaos (but feel free to add inventions at WT:LOP). If you can find the phrase used in the sense you mention, in a way that meets the conditions at WT:CFI, we will add it. Equinox ◑ 21:28, 2 May 2009 (UTC)
