Rfv-sense. French, to kill someone. I thought that was buter, is this a common misspelling of it? Mglovesfun (talk) 15:26, 12 March 2010 (UTC)

No, I don't think so. The second sense should be deleted too (it's also buter). But the first sense is OK. Lmaltier 18:44, 12 March 2010 (UTC)

RFV failed, sense removed. Also, per Lmaltier, I removed the second sense. —RuakhTALK 19:33, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

Margarine[edit]

In my experience, sometimes people say "butter" when they actually mean "margarine". This seems to be sense (3), but the way it is written now, it suggests it only means phrases which include the word "butter" plus some other noun/adjective, which doesn't quite fit what I have in mind here. Should a fourth sense be added, or the third reworded to make it clearer? 101.164.227.31 10:34, 27 April 2014 (UTC)
