"open" as aphetic for "cut open"[edit]

I've heard people talk about opening animals, to mean to cut them open to remove all the guts. In Stephen King a character talks about "open him like a can of sardines" or something to talk about cutting open a boy's throat with his knife. Is it worth a separate definition? It's not like someone would read the sentence and need to get a dictionary to know what it means, it's just good for those considering writing. Soap (talk) 03:43, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
