sanguinary[edit]

The definition you added was not different from the first definition "accompanied by bloodshed" (i.e. "bloody" in the US sense of that word). --EncycloPetey 17:52, 15 March 2009 (UTC)

I thought the use of President Grant was worth citing, especially as it demonstates the importance of the word in the 19th century.

If it had a date and a full name, "U.S. Grant" looked to be like an unspecified grant made by the United States. The quote should be formatted like the other cites, and would then be worth including on the Citations:sanguinary page. See Citations:listen for an example of how these pages are set up. The key point I made is that you added a "new definition" to add your quote. Rather, you should have associated the quote with the definition to which it belonged. Not every quote deserves a new definition. --EncycloPetey 18:52, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
