sexile

Protologism? Verb forms seem wrong. SemperBlotto 15:01, 20 February 2007 (UTC)

Definitely not a protologism; it's very widespread slang at colleges in the U.S. I've fixed the verb forms. —RuakhTALK 18:35, 20 February 2007 (UTC)
A quick skim-through of the b.g.c. results pulls up a number of uses in the relevant sense, including "Girls sexile each other!" (2005; emphasis in original), "We promised to never 'sexile' each other (kick your roommate out of the room for the purposes of hooking up)." (2004), "'I'm a sexile for the next few hours.'" (2005; though I guess that's technically a slightly different sense, seeing as it's a noun), "Be respectful to your roommate. Do not 'sexile' them or be unaccommodating to their customs and culture." (2001). (It also pulls up a number of mentions confirming the definition.) —RuakhTALK 18:51, 20 February 2007 (UTC)

De-striking this, as I struck it prematurely. (Sorry.) The article now has three cites, 2000–2006, all from b.g.c. —RuakhTALK 15:24, 18 April 2007 (UTC)

Cute nonce. Move to WT:BJAODN? --Connel MacKenzie 01:27, 18 April 2007 (UTC)

    • Yeah, sorry, my bad: I de-RFV'd that before I understood the RFV process. It's definitely existing slang, in widespread use on U.S. college campuses. The word, counting all inflected forms, gets 19,300 hits on Google (which don't all count toward CFI, obviously, but do prove that it's not a nonce). —RuakhTALK 04:51, 18 April 2007 (UTC)
