Interesting that the previous definitions seemed to have missed the most important definition of all.... RSvK 06:03, 23 Jul 2004 (UTC)

Strange, at some points it fails to expand the sk template while at others it expands it properly... Red Prince 22:11, 28 Jul 2004 (UTC)

There is a limit of 5 msg inclusions to a page; after that it stops including them properly. (This is a variable that for some reason has been set arbitrarily low on the mediawiki servers.) Not much that can be done about it as far as retaining template functionality — you can use {{subst:sk}} vel sim. for convenience of entry but that loses out on other features like translatability and clean editing :| —Muke Tever 03:15, 29 Jul 2004 (UTC)

Doesn't love mean money in some slang? Thank you.

One's desire that another be happyEdit

I'd like to add the definition "one's desire that another be happy." Any objections/suggestions? Jobarts-Talk 01:04, 5 Apr 2005 (UTC)


what the hell "zero" section doing in translations???

That’s because love means zero as a tennis score. —Stephen 07:30, 11 September 2008 (UTC)


Well, what about dialects? I think they should be shown for they can be very different. I mean only the extra cases, in this case for instance Yorkshire where love is pronounced /lʊv/. See also: lovely. Sincererly Ferike333 15:27, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Neither for love nor for moneyEdit

I always thought that referred to one of the earlier definitions of love, viz. that you might do something if you enjoy it, or you might do it if you are paid to do it, but in this case neither applies. -- 15:58, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

Ancient Egyptian word loveEdit

Can someone put this on the page:

Pronunciation of other sensesEdit

It is missing pronunciation for the meaning praise, for example. 05:47, 31 October 2015 (UTC)
