Sense: “A person who speaks Mirandese.” There is a Japanese linguistics professor who speaks Mirandese. Would he be called a Mirandese? — Ungoliant (Falai) 04:44, 14 July 2012 (UTC)

Delete It started out as part of the other definition (which doesn't need it any more), and makes no sense by itself. Chuck Entz (talk) 05:21, 14 July 2012 (UTC)
Debatably should be RFV, but I think it's just a pure error, so delete. Mglovesfun (talk) 13:37, 14 July 2012 (UTC)
Problem is that someone could find (valid) citations that apply to the second sense and claim it also applies to the first. Perhaps what the writer meant was something along the lines of “A person from the region where Mirandese is spoken natively.” — Ungoliant (Falai) 04:02, 15 July 2012 (UTC)
The original sentence was: "A native or inhabitant of northeastern Portugal; a person who speaks Mirandese". A couple of edits later, the phrase "A native or inhabitant of Miranda do Douro in northeastern corner of Portugal" was brought back from the original version of the entry to replace the part before the semicolon, and the part after it was made into a separate sense. I'm sure it seemed like a good idea at the time (it certainly improved the original sense), but that second part isn't a complete definition by itself. Chuck Entz (talk) 06:51, 15 July 2012 (UTC)
