Hmm, so wikitionary supports stealing word definitions from Websters. 07:06, 21 September 2009 (UTC)

  • Yes - not good is it. Even though the 1913 version is out of copyright, people can't be bothered to think of their own definitions. Perhaps you could help. SemperBlotto 07:09, 21 September 2009 (UTC)


I agree with Rubykuby (talkcontribs) that there's no corresponding definition of inability to match any of our definitions of disability. Some of the other synonyms like competence have the same problem. Could someone please sort them and cull the bad one. Be bold, there's always the undo button.

The following information has failed Wiktionary's deletion process.

It should not be re-entered without careful consideration.


Rfd-redundant: "The combination of a physical or intellectual impairment of an individual and the social attitudes and environment that prevents a person from living a full, normal life or from performing his/her normal job." is redundant to "State of being disabled; deprivation or want of ability; absence of competent physical, intellectual, or moral power, means, fitness, and the like." I don't really dispute that it's accurate, just that it's an overly-specific case of the first definition. For example, surely there are people with disabilities that don't have jobs.

Yeah, redundant, an attempt at political correctness or encyclopaedia-ism. Delete. Equinox 22:13, 1 March 2012 (UTC)

Delete Definition is encyclopedically overspecific. It looks like the kind of definition that one might have in some kind of academic article or policy manual. It contains terms that are inherently vague so it is not likely to be a legal definition. DCDuring TALK 21:42, 8 March 2012 (UTC)

Deleted. I did not delete any translation table, as the one whose header sorta matched this definition actually had its header atch definition 1 even better, and better than any other table did. (Not sure what to make of that.)​—msh210 (talk) 21:52, 26 April 2012 (UTC)
