RFV discussion[edit]

The following discussion has been moved from Wiktionary:Requests for verification.

This discussion is no longer live and is left here as an archive. Please do not modify this conversation, but feel free to discuss its conclusions.

I requested verification for this word because twice in the past month the entire senses included have been replaced by an anonymous "editor" and replaced with the single translation of "yuck". Verification is requested, therefore, to establish consensus and avoid an editing war.

I understand that the "definition" of as an interjection may leave much to be desired. The problem with this interjection is that there are so many different ways to translate the term, that an exhaustive list of words that could be rendered by would be fleeting.

Reto vortaro defines the word as "Malbone! Malagrable!" (Bad! Unpleasant!). While the Esperanto word for malagrabla does encompass the sense of nauseous in the literal sense, it is typically rendered and used as English speakers would use unpleasant or disagreeable.

Reta Vortaro gives the following example sentence for :

Mozilo ne plu funkcias bone pro la nura ĉeesto de tiu Fajrovulpo en la sama komputilo! aĉ!


Mozilla is no longer working well due to the mere presence of that Firefox on the same computer! .

I'm not certain what else I need to do to verify these senses, but I'm willing to jump through any reasonable hoops to do it

Striking, no action taken, sorry. Hopefully y'all can make use of the talk-page to try to reach a consensus. —RuakhTALK 17:52, 15 December 2009 (UTC)
