Talk:mouth

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

Arabic خشم[edit]

The word خشم apparently means both "mouth" and nose in Arabic, appears more in dialects than in standard Arabic (Fus-ha). It has been added to dictionaries (Hans Wehr) but I wonder if Arabs consider it more a dialectal word than a standard one. It also means gills! Anatoli 01:04, 5 November 2009 (UTC)

Somebody who needs to be fed: "Our new baby will be another mouth to feed." Isn't this mouth to feed? Does mouth alone ever mean this? Is it perhaps an attempt to be a little too proactive and document obvious figurative usages ("we could use another pair of hands")? Equinox 23:56, 8 June 2009 (UTC)
