Talk:it

I left what's at the beginning of the page, although I don't think it says a lot...

How does it mean sexual intercourse???

The only thing I can think of is a phrase like this:

Let's do it.

But it's simply a pronoun replacing a noun. It doesn't mean all of a sudden it gets that meaning.

I've removed the first part of the article. The number of meanings might as well be a number pulled out of the air like "Heinz 57 varieties". That never really represented 57 varieties, but it sounded good so the company adopted it as a slogan. "It" as sexual intercourse i8s also meaningless. This usage is really as a general purpose euphemism for anything that may be slightly naughty or forbidden. Eclecticology 01:57 May 20, 2003 (UTC)!

It as noun[edit]

In my schooldays, we played a game called "it", which is tag. --Umbrella 08:10, 12 August 2007 (UTC)

İngiliscə — Azərbaycanca?[edit]

Is there anything useful that could be gleaned from this revision by an anonymous user?  (u):Raifʻhār (t):Doremítzwr﴿ 15:06, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

He’s saying that o is an Azeri pronoun for he/she/it/that, and bu is an Azeri pronoun for this/it. —Stephen 16:44, 11 December 2008 (UTC)
So that information belongs in a translation section, oui?  (u):Raifʻhār (t):Doremítzwr﴿ 16:55, 11 December 2008 (UTC)
Bien sûr. And əvəzlik means pronoun. —Stephen 17:51, 11 December 2008 (UTC)
Is that what was meant?  (u):Raifʻhār (t):Doremítzwr﴿ 18:13, 11 December 2008 (UTC)
Azeri is highly inflected, so there are limited uses for nominative singular o. —Stephen 18:46, 11 December 2008 (UTC)
OK. Please check əvəzlik, too. Thanks.  (u):Raifʻhār (t):Doremítzwr﴿ 19:28, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

It girl[edit]

It girl should be added to derived terms.--TonyTheTiger 00:46, 19 November 2009 (UTC)

"(British) IT (used by schoolchildren). What have we got next? Art, then it." A joke? Equinox 18:17, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

I'd just remove it to be honest. Perhaps {{form of|nonstandard form of|IT}}, but why even bother? Mglovesfun (talk) 12:33, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

RFV failed, sense removed. —RuakhTALK 21:41, 11 January 2011 (UTC)
