radiate

Rfv-sense - noun sense. I can't find a noun sense in any other dictionary. 21:28, 10 September 2011 (UTC) (p.s. moved from the middle of the verb sense)

I'm tempted to not speedy delete this sense, just to see if someone can cite it as a noun with this meaning. Mglovesfun (talk) 21:34, 10 September 2011 (UTC)
I am not making this up. This is cited in the 10th Edition, Emergency Transport of the Sick and Injured (the EMT's bible).Gtroy 20:55, 12 September 2011 (UTC)
Yes, you are making this up. See OPQRST where you will see the noun radiation. The only noun senses of radiate are the historical usage for an invertebrate of the family Radiata (no longer used), a coin with rays, and the rare synonym for ray. Dbfirs 22:03, 12 September 2011 (UTC)
I am not making anything up and OPQRST which I wrote, includes radiate or radiation as part of the R.Gtroy 08:10, 13 September 2011 (UTC)
I don't see how this make sense as a definition at all; OPQRST is a mnemomic, and its parts aren't necessarily any part of speech. The sample sentence is «For radiate ask things like "where is it?" and "does it move?".»; but it should be «For [the word] "radiate" ask things like "where is it?" and "does it move?".»--Prosfilaes 08:45, 13 September 2011 (UTC)
It's a sample sentence and I wrote it the way it would be stated in a class.Gtroy 19:02, 13 September 2011 (UTC)
Yes, we are not doubting that this is how it is stated in the class, or that the "R" in the mnemonic is interpreted in the way that you describe. What we are questioning is the claim that the word somehow "means" something different just because this is mentioned in the instructions in the 10th Edition of Emergency Transport of the Sick and Injured. The correct place for such special interpretations and extensions is a Wikipedia article, or an appendix to a dictionary. Nevertheless, thank you for bringing to our attention that the word "radiate" can be a noun. Dbfirs 11:51, 14 September 2011 (UTC)
