Talk:acute

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

"Acute accent" does not make clear that it is an example of the word "Acute" acting as a noun, it appears that it is still an adjective modifying "accent". It should be made clear that this particular accent is also simply called "an acute".

The noun section should also include acuteness as an example

Acuteness[edit]

Actually, rather than list acuteness directly, it would make sense to link to the page on acuteness, akin to linking to acuter and acutest as adjectives.

"fewer" than 90 degrees?[edit]

Seriously? That sounds to me like a hypercorrection, as "less than" is generally considered appropriate for everything that's measured in real numbers rather than counted in integers.

"Less than" is definitely correct, "fewer than" is potentially incorrect, let's switch to "less than".
