Sense: In an exceeding manner. I don't know what this means. DCDuring TALK 22:19, 21 November 2009 (UTC)

Err, since we don't have exceeding as an adjective, I say delete. Exceeding isn't an adjective, is it? Mglovesfun (talk) 11:54, 22 November 2009 (UTC)
Would that it were as simple as that! Any English participle form presumptively can be used as an adjective. DCDuring TALK 13:30, 22 November 2009 (UTC)
Yes, exceeding is certainly an adjective - and I've just added such a meaning. SemperBlotto 08:18, 23 November 2009 (UTC)
Delete this sense. It serves no purpose as the other two definitions describe the word perfectly well. I think it's an 'either or' case. Either keep the first definition and delete 2,3 (which I object to) or keep 2 and 3 and delete 1. On a side note, I have seen 'exceeding' used frequently in literary works. For example, a day of exceeding heat. My two cents. Jamesjiao 09:15, 23 November 2009 (UTC)
I have to agree with Jamesjiao. The other two definitions are worded well and they both cover this one correctly, so delete it and let's be over with it. Razorflame 09:35, 23 November 2009 (UTC)
Delete 1. It was the original entry for the page, and seems to have served merely as a place holder. -- ALGRIF talk 14:46, 26 November 2009 (UTC)
