incarcerate

Second defintion: to trap. I'd like to see some examples of this usage. Perhaps it just needs to be exchanged with Merriam-Webster's "to subject to confinement"? __meco 22:05, 28 April 2007 (UTC)

Is referencing definitions of words listed in commercial dictionaries copyright violation? Can word definitions be copyrighted? __meco 08:06, 29 April 2007 (UTC)
Yes. A particular phrasing of a definition is copyright-protected material. --EncycloPetey 02:34, 30 April 2007 (UTC)
