ripe

"Intoxicated" sense - is that regional?

Noun - really?

Verb? Really? You mean ripen, surely?

I think the "intoxicated" sense is archaic; Shakespeare uses it, and modern editors footnote it. I also think Shakespeare uses the "ripen" sense, but I'm not sure. —RuakhTALK 15:26, 15 May 2007 (UTC)
General question: are we still marking things not used in 100 years with {{obsolete}}? --Connel MacKenzie 17:25, 17 May 2007 (UTC)

"Intoxicated" sense RFV passedThe Tempest is a well-known work, so we don't need any other cites — and other senses RFV failed. (At some point I might set about tracking down a Shakespearean use of the verb sense "to ripen", in which case I'll re-add it.) —RuakhTALK 17:55, 9 September 2007 (UTC)
