Talk:red

Return to "red" page.

Separate translations required for adjective and noun in all languages. -- Paul G 18:42, 18 Jan 2004 (UTC)

There are still many adjectives in the noun list today. -- Hämbörger 13:29, 5 April 2006 (UTC)
"From: WT:RFC"

There is no second etymology. --Connel MacKenzie T C 03:55, 10 April 2006 (UTC)

The 2nd etymology can be found at redd. Anyhow, missing etymologies are not a clean-up concern (so please remove the rfc tag, Connel). We have Template:etystub for such cases. Ncik 10:46, 10 April 2006 (UTC)
Ncik, there is a pretty big difference between 1) correcting a tag (i.e. if you had replaced {{rfc}} with {{etymstub}}) and 2) lying and saying there is no justification for an rfc (when a reason was given,) plus removing the correct cleanup tag (with your demonstrably false comments.)
You may disagree, but to subversively, subtly attack Wiktionary with nonsense like this isn't the best way to get your point across. We don't do blank sections. Sections with no content, but only child-levels, clearly indicate an entry has been vandalized. Have you attacked other entries in this manner? Now would be a good time to come clean with any other "mistakes" you may have made in this regard. --Connel MacKenzie T C 04:06, 15 April 2006 (UTC)

"(British) A type of firecracker." I suppose it might be. I've never heard of it. Can someone confirm? Equinox 21:06, 14 November 2009 (UTC)

latin translationsEdit

It seems to me that there are quite a few Latin synonyms for "red". Perhaps the translation should be checked.50.103.230.83 21:41, 24 January 2012 (UTC)

They all seem to be good words for red. Vermiculus means crimson, but crimson is red. —Stephen (Talk) 23:20, 24 January 2012 (UTC)
