--126.96.36.199 04:34, 28 July 2008 (UTC) Under "military" the Russian translation is given as "voennyje" (in Cyrillic) with the notation "f pl", presumably meaning "feminine plural". Since Russian adjectives do not distinguish gender in the plural, the "f" for "feminine" is superfluous. - stevo
- It isn’t superfluous because it suggests an implied noun (силы). The same word, but masculine plural, means soldiers, military men. Ignoring the gender is like ignoring the etymology. In any case, there is another term that is better. —Stephen 06:43, 3 August 2008 (UTC)
- Note: the below discussion was moved from the Wiktionary:Tea room.
I keep hearing a different British meaning mentioned. But all I can find in dictionaries is an alternate sense of “related to land forces”, for the adjective.
- Is this really an adjective with separate meaning, or just attributive use of the noun? --EncycloPetey 05:11, 7 February 2009 (UTC)
