I'm not familiar with Wiktionary editing guidelines, but this entry should point out that the British spelling savoury is only applicable to the adjective. The herb is spelled savory in all my British dictionaries (which treat them as two completely different words). —This comment was unsigned.

Um, that is what our entry says. --Connel MacKenzie 05:27, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

summer & winter savory (Wikipedia articles link/box)Edit

Wikipedia has articles on these. Is it ok for me to put a "Wikipedia has an article on..." box down there? And could someone please tell me how I do that? :) Thanks very much. --Tyranny Sue 04:40, 7 April 2009 (UTC)


I believe savory is used to refer to the taste now identified as a "fifth" basic taste, called umami. Perhaps this definition should be added.
