Mixed senses[edit]

Verse is defined as a poetic form with regular meter and fixed rhyme. But some poems are also written in verses and stanzas. Will it therefore, be correct to say, with reference to a poem, for example, "note the shift in tone between the first verse and the second?"

Logical vs. aesthetic punctuation[edit]

I revert the quoted punctuation to logical quoting. See w:Wikipedia:Guidance on applying the Manual of Style#Quotation marks for more information on the topic. Rodasmith 16:55, 10 May 2006 (UTC)

Rfv-sense: (slang) To compete or battle against (The undefeated boxer is going to verse another boxer.) Never heard of this, any dictionaries saying yes? Mglovesfun (talk) 21:25, 12 June 2010 (UTC)

I've never heard of it either, and haven't looked for usage, but it would seem a logical formation from versus. Thryduulf (talk) 00:48, 13 June 2010 (UTC)
