bug[edit]

Crustaceans, card cheats, and telegraph senses. --Connel MacKenzie 02:12, 12 May 2007 (UTC)

Crustacean, definite yes. I was going to add Morton Bay bug but it is already in there.--Dmol 20:44, 12 May 2007 (UTC)

D'oh. That isn't even specific to Australia. OK, my bad; I'll remove that tag now. The other two still need something, though. --Connel MacKenzie 17:25, 16 May 2007 (UTC)

Telegraph key sense cited. Cynewulf 18:42, 16 May 2007 (UTC)

unexplained revert[edit]

Moved from User talk:SemperBlotto

Would you kindly explain your revert? [1] --DenisYurkin 21:27, 22 February 2008 (UTC)

  • Not idiomatic - just a bug that is intermittent. SemperBlotto 22:09, 22 February 2008 (UTC)

Hebrew fix[edit]

ג'וק (juk) means cockroach and cockroach-looking insects, not bug/insect in general. We never call a ant/fly/mosquito a ג'וק. We use חרק (harak), like in תרסיס נגד חרקים (tarsis neged harakim, anti-bug spray)

New meaning?[edit]

What is a bugged hotel room like? [2] I can't replace it with either annoyed or installed. Thanks in advance. Ferike333 16:09, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

It's under Verb "To install an electronic listening device or devices in". But in the example sentence you've given, you want the adjective bugged which originated as a passive sense past participle of the verb. --EncycloPetey 16:14, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
Ah, I see, thank you. I must have looked over that. Ferike333 11:19, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

coll.?[edit]

The meaning that is most common among laypeople (an insect or arachnid, usually seen as a pest) is given as coll. Why? the dictionary I have to hand, the American Heritage Dictionary does NOT tag it as colloquial, slang, informal or any-thing else. I suggest the "coll." label be removed. to me, "bug" as in bother and to place spying devices are much more informal/colloquial/slang/... 211.225.33.104 09:39, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

Sounds colloquial to me in BrE; not sure about American usage. Equinox 11:37, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
