  A user suggests that this English entry be cleaned up giving the reason: "
  • The senses need a cleanup or are incomplete. Where do tourist and terrorist belong to?
    • tourist is related to a word ending in -ism (tourism), but that's not a religion, not a political tendency, no creative or academic role.".
Please see the discussion on Requests for cleanup(+) or the talk page for more information and remove this template after the problem has been dealt with.
