- Added. Now we need pronunciation sections to show that foulness is stressed on the first syllable, but Foulness is stressed on the second. SemperBlotto 22:45, 14 December 2008 (UTC)
Thanks, I wasn't sure if it was a real word. 18.104.22.168 22:56, 14 December 2008 (UTC)
Foul/ Vuil/ faulEdit
Aren't foul and vuil (the latter is Dutch for 'dirty', 'nasty' etc.) from the same origen? The same with the German 'faul'? Is there someone who can back this up (or blow it into infinity)? --22.214.171.124 21:03, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
Foul/ Vuil/ faul/ fuleEdit
Came across the swedish band "Den Fule" on last fm, and it was said to mean "the ugly (one)". Seeing as I am a dane I cannot say its the same word as foul but it seems reasonable. What puzzles is I cant find a danish term...

- From w:Bowling: "If a player crosses the foul line at the end of the approach, the ball is marked as a foul "F" and is awarded zero points."—msh210℠ 17:32, 6 September 2007 (UTC)
Surely they are "fouler" and "foulest". I'm not sure how to change that, though, as it's all templated... --Jtle515 12:00, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
