Two adjective sections, in one headword is defined as noun, encyclopedically. DCDuring TALK 15:18, 20 January 2012 (UTC)

I'm not sure there is an adjective. I mean, how would you use it in a sentence? Mglovesfun (talk) 10:45, 21 January 2012 (UTC)
Are temperature scales nouns or adjectives? There seems to be inconsistency here. Fahrenheit says adjective, but centigrade says noun. What part of speech is Celsius in "Celsius temperature scale"? At least "A metric scale of temperature, originally defined as having the freezing point of water as 0° and its boiling point as 100°, at standard atmospheric pressure" should be removed. This is actually incorrect, it is the definition of centigrade, which is not quite synonymous as claimed by the entry. The centigrade page has the same error.
