Talk:cane

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

This entry is on the Italian 'cane' - dog. What about the English definitions? Sugar cane... a rod or stick, and the cane you walk with? Do these share the same entry? Do they go before the Italian or after it? Or what? KJ 03:04 Apr 3, 2003 (UTC)

They should certainly be on the same page/entry. I would put them before the Italian entry.

I've moved the following out of the Italian entry as it belongs in the Italian Wiktionary (with some reformatting), when it is set up, not in the English one. -- Paul G 10:56, 10 Mar 2004 (UTC)
