nuclear reactor core

This term is SoP, but the definition is a missing sense of core. DCDuring TALK 11:46, 4 August 2012 (UTC)

What are you actually proposing? I can take a guess but I'd rather you just tell us and cut out the guessing all together. Mglovesfun (talk) 11:10, 5 August 2012 (UTC)
A similar definition has now been added to core. SemperBlotto (talk) 11:19, 5 August 2012 (UTC)
That the definition of this term be move/merged into core as a sense line, which would be consistent with other dictionaries and actual usage. DCDuring TALK 12:52, 5 August 2012 (UTC)
In which case I think Liliana-60's RFD nomination is the correct one. It's possible to merge the edit history of core and nuclear reactor core, but I wouldn't particularly advise it as it involves deleting core (yep) renaming nuclear reactor core to core, deleting core again (yep) and restoring all versions.

Sure. DCDuring TALK 13:18, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

We were missing a sense of core here, which has since been added. Now this can be analyzed as nuclear reactor + core. -- Liliana 11:40, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

Straightforward delete. Mglovesfun (talk) 12:14, 5 August 2012 (UTC)
Delete. Reactor core (without the nuclear) is just as common. Core of a reactor. Equinox 12:21, 5 August 2012 (UTC)
Delete Even core by itself often means the same thing. Chuck Entz (talk) 19:57, 5 August 2012 (UTC)
But is this nuclear reactor + core or nuclear + reactor core? —CodeCat 18:00, 13 August 2012 (UTC)
If the current description is correct (and also IMHO), it is nuclear reactor + core. --129.125.102.126 23:35, 17 October 2012 (UTC)
Delete. Not as sure about reactor core. DAVilla 02:29, 17 September 2012 (UTC)
