Talk:end

Return to "end" page.

I sketched five different meanings of the English noun. Obviously, the translation need not coincide for those meanings. Andres 13:13, 24 Jun 2004 (UTC)


The English verb has different meanings as a transitive verb and as an intransitive verb. Andres 13:13, 24 Jun 2004 (UTC)

at the end of the dayEdit

How is it most appropriate to add a reference from the end article to at the end of the day? I'm not too familiar with the template used at en.wiktionary.org. Thanks. --DenisYurkin 11:12, 16 February 2007 (UTC)

A link to at the end of the day should appear under the heading Derived terms. Jonathan Webley 11:51, 16 February 2007 (UTC)

end

Rfv-sense for 2 senses: (1) Extreme part, and (2) Extreme line. Does anyone know what these are supposed to mean? -- Ghost of WikiPedant 17:39, 5 September 2010 (UTC)

The end of something is the extreme part of it. My toe is the extreme part of my foot. I'm not sure about "extreme line". Equinox 18:47, 5 September 2010 (UTC)
Hm, is your toe the end of your foot or would it be better English to say that it's at the end of your foot? And does this "extreme part" sense differ significantly from the existing and much clearer defn2: "The final point of something in space or time"? I think defn2 covers this meaning adequately. -- Ghost of WikiPedant 00:34, 8 September 2010 (UTC)
Maybe "extreme line" was intended to be an improvement on a definition relating to "limit, border". Whatever the intent, it fails to communicate it. BTW, MWOnline has 7 main senses, 17 total lowest-level senses for "end" (noun). DCDuring TALK 19:11, 5 September 2010 (UTC)
