Connel, I genuinely cannot believe you don't know this word (which, I assume, is the reason you're rfving it). I'm sure we can find some nice, old cites if we look hard enough, but for the meantime, let these suffice: gbooks, define:slattern and m-w. --Wytukaze 18:05, 3 September 2007 (UTC)
Clarification: Note that, yes, I have not put cites on either this page or the pages of the other two RFVs I have commented on above (junk and chuff). My only intent is to advise; I simply don't have the time to produce a proper citation. Apologies. --Wytukaze 18:10, 3 September 2007 (UTC)
Really. I don't recall ever having heard this word. Maybe at a Shakespeare festival? I guess my question then, is, is this archaic, or obsolete? --Connel MacKenzie 06:30, 5 September 2007 (UTC)
The COED tags it as “dated”, and that’s what I’ve gone with. (1933 is too recent for an “archaic” tag. BTW, what does “obsolete” actually mean?) † Raifʻhār Doremítzwr 12:53, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

I’ve added references, and the second sense is now cited. Great word this. † Raifʻhār Doremítzwr 20:04, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

slattern[edit]

RFV-sense "A prostitute who attracts customers by walking the streets." Even if a sense "prostitute" can be attested separately from the sense "slut", I'll be intrigued if it's limited to prostitutes who attract customers by walking the streets. - -sche (discuss) 22:37, 22 May 2013 (UTC)

  • RFV failed: no quotations provided. As an auxi check: such a specific sense is absent from most online dicts that I checked. --Dan Polansky (talk) 18:37, 21 August 2013 (UTC)
