needs an entry for Jousting lists (the area down which the jousters charge toward each other). Thanks. --18.104.22.168 03:52, 14 August 2006 (UTC)
Assuming I want to give a title to a list of item, I am not very clear, and nor is the article whether I should write the 'item list' or 'items list'.
- It would not be terrible to write "item list" or "items list", but better and more idiomatic would be either of "list of items" or "itemized list". —Stephen 02:52, 19 January 2010 (UTC)
- "Items list" would not be idiomatic in American English. The best title for a list would be a phrase or clause that described the items. It is more-or-less self-evident that a list is a list. If you had a photograph of a flower, you wouldn't have its caption be "photograph", would you? DCDuring TALK 00:10, 5 February 2010 (UTC)
I was looking up this word to find authority for the proposition that to list (meaning to mention elsewhere in a document a single item) is an improper usage. I couldn't find what I was looking for, but then I noticed with surprise that there is no definition here for (verb and noun)"list" as a nautical term referring to a boat or ship "leaning" to port or starboard. I don't have any reference, or I would do the same; perhaps I will get to it later. Terry Thorgaard (talk) 21:55, 25 June 2014 (UTC)
