Rfv-sense. Belonging to the navy. Seems like the noun used attributively. I don't think you can say this warship is navy (excluding the color, of course). Mglovesfun (talk) 11:41, 22 June 2010 (UTC)

I agree. This looks like attributive use of the noun, and I can think of no counterexamples. --EncycloPetey 19:38, 22 June 2010 (UTC)
MG's test is not conclusive. One could say "Jack is navy through and through." See Wiktionary:English adjectives. DCDuring TALK 20:30, 22 June 2010 (UTC)
Per DCDuring, I didn't tag it with {{rfd-redundant}}, so if it's here we should try and cite it. How, well, that I don't know. Mglovesfun (talk) 00:56, 24 June 2010 (UTC)
