baer

Did this Limburgish word really mean "dog" in the past? I have not found references. - -sche 21:45, 25 February 2011 (UTC)

The Limburgish Wiktionary apparently lists it, too (but doesn't note it being obsolete). --JorisvS 22:38, 25 February 2011 (UTC)
I've converted the {{rfv-sense}} to an {{attention|li}}; I withdraw/strike my RFV quite a while after being given assurance by a Limburgish editor that the word is in use. - -sche (discuss) 07:00, 8 August 2011 (UTC)

Why is it RfV? What should I do to take this away? --Ooswesthoesbes 08:24, 9 April 2011 (UTC)

WT:RFV says the best thing to do is find a sentence in a book, where "baer" is clearly being used to mean "dog" (rather than "bear"), and add that sentence to the entry. But because Limburgish is small language, I would be satisfied if you could just cite another dictionary that says "baer" means "dog". And could you tell us if dogs can still be called "baere"? If they can, then we need to remove the "obsolete" tag! :) - -sche (discuss) 03:06, 11 April 2011 (UTC)
Sure I can. I'll give you some citations from a dictionary/text book when I have some time to search for it :) --Ooswesthoesbes 07:16, 12 April 2011 (UTC)
