What about a matching pair of cards (or anything, shoes, purse that matches your outfit, matching colors, match of cards in concentration. etc) type definition? none of them seem to fit that type of use of the word match. It would be like tow things that are very similar or complimentary or even exactly alike. —This comment was unsigned.
- Did you scroll down past the noun to the verb senses? (transitive) To make a successful match or pairing. Equinox 21:15, 3 December 2008 (UTC)
Where/how would this fit in.
The players were a good match-up? -- Mjquin id 07:04, 9 January 2009 (UTC)
- That’s the second sense listed. —Stephen 08:05, 9 January 2009 (UTC)
What About the Match of a Matchlock
- matches is the traditional spelling of the plural. matchs is the new spelling, as of 1990. There is no difference in pronunciation. match, matches, and matchs are all pronounced /matʃ/. —Stephen 22:15, 3 May 2009 (UTC)
About the word match as in sport match, is it a UK English word or also correct in the U.S. English. What about the word game (sport game), is it correct in the UK English?
- Both words are used in both UK and US English. Sometimes it depends on the sport, e.g. for football it's usually "a football match", but for pool it's usually "a game of pool". Equinox ◑ 21:52, 23 September 2012 (UTC)
