SAMPA pronunciation[edit]

Shouldn't be there /"kUSn=/ or /"kUS@n/ instead of /"kUS=@n/? In this word "n" is a syllabic consonant, not "S"... Maro 20:59, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

It's not circular. The use of "cushion" refers to an earlier definition, not to itself. It would be circular if the sense of the word used was the very sense being defined, or if the definition of term A uses a term B whose definition includes term A. —Internoob (DiscCont) 17:29, 27 July 2010 (UTC)
