church hop[edit]

"To change churches one attends frequently." I'd have thought you could hop lots of things, not just churches. Mglovesfun (talk) 13:56, 29 October 2010 (UTC)

I don't think that churchhop (compare barhop) will turn out to be attestable. DCDuring TALK 15:17, 29 October 2010 (UTC)

This sense doesn't exist at hop, which is a prerequisite to being considered SoP. -- Liliana 12:49, 18 October 2011 (UTC)


This is a troublesome thing to record anywhere other than at [[hop]]. hop can form a large, apparently open, set of terms, many of which are probably attestable, of the form "N hop". The common instances of the noun are "job", "bar", "table", "port", "museum", "gallery", "star", "frequency", "house", "park", "parish", "winery" (all getting more than one hit at COCA, but there are many others. "Ashram", "belfry", "cafeteria", "casino", "capital", "country", "casino", "hostel", "hotel", "genre", "mall", "restaurant", "star", and "tavern" each get a single hit at COCA. The most common form is "N hopping", often as a complement to a form of go, but also in expressions such as "They are galley hopping today". I found only RHU among OneLook dictionaries to have this as a separate sense at "hop".
Based on this I will be adding a sense at hop and will copy the paragraph above to its talk page. DCDuring TALK 16:11, 18 October 2011 (UTC)
  • Delete as SOP. All the hits for "churchhopping" that I can find are in website names. bd2412 T 15:37, 19 October 2011 (UTC)
