Example[edit]

The example for noun sense 2, 'Nonsense or information deliberately intended to mislead,' is 'Oh bollocks I am late for work!' This doesn't fit at all; this sentence uses the word as an interjection, not a noun.

On another note, why are the interjection and verb listed as 'taboo' but the noun only 'vulgar'? --75.36.129.3 00:23, 5 August 2007 (UTC)

this had been a 2007 entry which still needed attention

It was said that "The noun and verb senses need standardising" and sorting, "particularly the noun sense which is almost exclusively used in plural". — Beobach 22:05, 3 December 2010 (UTC)

The noun and verb senses need standardising. I'm not certain how to sort it, particularly the noun sense which is almost exclusively used in plural (some senses are plural only) but the singular does exist. Thryduulf 21:20, 14 July 2007 (UTC)
