I'm not sure if it's just my regional American English, but I pronounce this word as /mɪərɚ/, which would be like meer-er.Scotty Zebulon 01:25, 29 January 2009 (UTC)


Lacks a definition[edit]

In the sense of: the controls were mirrored, meaning that instead of being fitted for right-handed people - they're fitted for left-handed people. Gambler Justice 16:50, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

Metaphor?[edit]

What about as used in the rhetorical phrase "look in a mirror", when someone (cryptographer Alice, for example) is describing to someone else (Bob) the negative characteristics of a third party (Carol), and Bob says "look in a mirror," meaning that Alice is describing characteristics of Carol which would also apply to herself (Alice). Shouldn't that have an entry here, too? 207.65.109.10 10:39, 27 September 2010 (UTC)
