liter

Adjective sense and first noun sense. I guess I don't know if this is true or not, but I think if we're going to stay respectable, we should at least have cites for these. -Atelaes λάλει ἐμοί 20:50, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

I've reorg'd the entry, and tagged the senses which you were referring to (since they have now changed location). Also tagged one more, "common misspelling of lighter," of which I am rather dubious. But I'm not sure exactly how to verify that one. -- Visviva 10:48, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
Because we show "lite" in Category:English simplified spelling variants, it seems inconsistent to show liter as a misspelling. DCDuring TALK 17:24, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
From the POS header, I assumed that was meant to refer to lighter#Noun, presumably of the cigarette kind. If there is actually a comparative form of lite#Adjective, that would not be a mis-spelling, just a execrable one. -- Visviva 17:30, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
In the US there is so much commercial use of "lite" that it wouldn't surprise me, but I have yet to identify a practical way of establishing it. We have an entries for lite and -lite don't we? DCDuring TALK 16:36, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
I have found references to different "UK dialect" noun, verb, and adjective PoSs (2 additional etymologies). The verb makes the noun "liter", "one that lites" somewhat plausible, but it would also be "UK dialect". I have no idea how the comparative form of the UK dialect adjective would be formed. I examined the first 100/670 b.g.c. hits for "litest" and found scannos only. I tried searching for "liter lite beer" and "litest lite beer" with 0 hits. DCDuring TALK 17:19, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
