Tea room discussion[edit]

Note: the below discussion was moved from the Wiktionary:Tea room.

Considering adding an entry for dincha (common slang for didn't you, easily citeable back to 1930s or earlier, e.g. dincha hear me?), but I don't know what part of speech it is! Seems it would be a verb, but it actually has the pronoun fused into it, so does that make it a "phrase" or something? Equinox 20:08, 6 December 2008 (UTC)

I would classify it as a contraction- see betcha, gotcha. Nadando 20:10, 6 December 2008 (UTC)
WT:POS allows it as "standard" non-PoS Level-3 header. I view it as a last resort, but a good one if no single "real" PoS applies, as here. DCDuring TALK 20:30, 6 December 2008 (UTC)
I would tend to agree with the assessment by Nadando (talkcontribs). Cirt (talk) 07:17, 7 December 2008 (UTC)
