Talk:-ing

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

Why has someone on the editorial staff taken out my definition of the English noun 'ing' meaning a flood meadow, which is still in wide use in the north of England? I tried highlighting the header 'ing' on this page, but nothing else appeared except the -ing definitions. Where has my input gone?

This word is defined at ing, not at -ing. SemperBlotto 17:48, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

Lost entry ing[edit]

I'm sure that error of some kind was involved. I couldn't find a trace in the history or even in the deletion log. I hope that you hadn't goen through the effort of entering a lot of citations or a complex etymology for it. I will do a basic entry. DCDuring TALK 17:53, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

We need another definition/usage[edit]

.

I'm not sure how to phrase a definition, but here's a sample of the usage I mean, from August Wilson's Fences (1986):

ROSE Troy . . .
TROY What you Troying me for. Yeah, I did it.

Isn’t that a present participle? — Ungoliant (falai) 17:52, 14 September 2017 (UTC)
