Can't it also be a word used to introduce a theoretical situation?

Say you're on a desert island and...

Yes, see sense 6 of the verb, and the interjection (scroll down). Equinox 21:52, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

I do not know how I didn't see that... Thanks for the quick response! MarcCapa 21:54, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

But hold on, Jcwf has a point, it can be a noun too surely? MarcCapa 21:57, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

Yep. Looks like nobody got around to adding it. I've just put it in. Equinox 22:00, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

Greek[edit]

If Greek: λέγω (el)m means 'to say' only in the fourth place, it can not be the primary, unmarked translation! 195.4.79.134 15:25, 9 November 2011 (UTC)

It can. One has nothing to do with the other. Do you think that if λέγω means "say" only in the fourth place, then automatically "say" means λέγω only in the fourth place? The placement under λέγω has nothing to do with the placement under "say". —Stephen (Talk) 05:30, 10 November 2011 (UTC)
