Needs attributive use. As you've probably realized, this is a ploy to get the incomprehensible "attributive use rule" review, or just plain removed. C'mon guys, what we don't need in CFI as a paragraph that AFAICT not one single Wiktionary user understands. Mglovesfun (talk) 12:28, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

Attributive use is bullshit. </2cents> — [ R·I·C ] opiaterein — 13:56, 1 April 2010 (UTC)
No attributive use found at COCA, BNC, or the Time Magazine corpus. DCDuring TALK 14:19, 1 April 2010 (UTC)
Close this RFV, per Wiktionary:Unresolved issues/Place names, and leave the issue to rot a while longer. :) No one wants place names to require attributive use. --Yair rand 21:49, 1 April 2010 (UTC)


Yankee land[edit]

Should Yankee land be included among the synonyms as well? Is it pejorative? The uſer hight Bogorm converſation 08:23, 27 August 2010 (UTC)

Yes, a synonym. I don’t consider it pejorative. Americans are not offended by Yankee. —Stephen 06:39, 28 August 2010 (UTC)
Southerners are. —Angr 08:24, 6 January 2012 (UTC)
