Etymology 3Edit

The definition given under the third etymology is also given under the second. Does it actually have a different etymology or did someone just mistakenly assume so? Either way, something should be deleted: either etymology 3 or the duplicate definition under etymology 2. JodianWarrior 10:32, 06 April 2015 (EST)

"N hop" constructionEdit

This is a troublesome thing to record anywhere other than at [[hop]]. hop can form a large, apparently open, set of terms, many of which are probably attestable, of the form "N hop". The common instances of the noun are "job", "bar", "table", "port", "museum", "gallery", "star", "frequency", "house", "park", "parish", "winery" (all getting more than one hit at COCA, but there are many others. "Ashram", "belfry", "cafeteria", "casino", "capital", "country", "casino", "hostel", "hotel", "genre", "mall", "restaurant", "star", and "tavern" each get a single hit at COCA. The most common form is "N hopping", often as a complement to a form of go, but also in expressions such as "They are galley hopping today". I found only RHU among OneLook dictionaries to have this as a separate sense at "hop". DCDuring TALK 16:14, 18 October 2011 (UTC)

  • Delete; I don't think we even need to use the RFD process to do something like this. bd2412 T 15:34, 6 April 2015 (UTC)
I was gonna say the same thing. Why even nominate? Speedy deletion is part of our process. Renard Migrant (talk) 15:35, 6 April 2015 (UTC)
In case someone thinks the other one should be deleted, if it really belongs in a different etymology section. — Ungoliant (falai) 15:37, 6 April 2015 (UTC)
Alright, well, delete one of them. Renard Migrant (talk) 22:25, 9 April 2015 (UTC)
