working

sense: "(usually plural) The action of the verb work."

I have added four specific senses from Century. "Senses" of this "action of the verb" type are, at best, lame. One may as well just have a generic present participle "sense". DCDuring TALK 00:44, 15 March 2012 (UTC)

Delete. The generic sense is indeed too generic; this looks like the result of printing a paper dictionary, where senses are merged to save space. --EncycloPetey (talk) 04:19, 24 March 2012 (UTC)
And an abridged one at that. Such entries may also have been the product of an effort to build the entry count or someone's new entry or edit count. In any event, such entries should be targeted for replacement by less generic wording IMO. There are only 158 of them. DCDuring TALK 11:36, 24 March 2012 (UTC)
But if we can cite workings as a plural of this sense of working, then the noun entry would be justified. --EncycloPetey (talk) 01:23, 31 March 2012 (UTC)
