Quotes for verification[edit]

Connel, would use in a magazine count? C.f. a Prairie Business article from September 2002, for instance. It's not the best example, as there isn't enough context to show meaning, but it's more the principle of this kind of publication that I'm asking about.

Yes. Books are strongly preferred but you can search magazines, web pages, blogs, usenet groups, or anything that can be considered "durably archived." (Perhaps most blogs don't meet that criteria.) More info can be found at WT:CFI, also at the top section of WT:RFV. --Connel MacKenzie T C 06:45, 19 April 2006 (UTC)
Thanks! I'll have a look at those two pages. Cheers, Eiríkr Útlendi | Tala við mig 15:57, 19 April 2006 (UTC)

From RFC[edit]

Needs some help, no language, no real definition... - TheDaveRoss 01:13, 19 April 2006 (UTC)

Added language, alternate spelling, and fixed bad link (from oy wey to the proper oy vey). I can verify that it's used, if that's at all helpful -- it's very common in my dad's family, for instance, and they're all from Denmark about four generations back by way of Minnesota. Not sure what else needs to happen for the entry; it's an interjection, as already noted on the page. The definition could be clarified, I suppose, but I'm too tired at present to be intelligible enough for that.  :) HTH, Eiríkr Útlendi | Tala við mig 06:24, 19 April 2006 (UTC)
Added a definition (although this is sort of difficult to define). If someone does not find this satisfactory, please unstrike it. Atelaes 07:20, 20 February 2007 (UTC)
