Jump to: navigation, search

Being keen is a good thing I think. If your keen, then you have a sharp eye on stuff.

That is our sense 2: "Acute of mind; sharp; penetrating". Equinox 13:10, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

Missing UK(?) slang sense?[edit]

I think we're missing a sense, or a shade of usage, in British English, which relates to somebody being over-eager to attain academic success, or a "swot", or teacher's pet, etc., who works very hard. Compare keeno. I've heard it around the university now and again. Equinox 04:00, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
