come down[edit]

rfd sense X 2: 1. To descend; 2., To visit, to travel in order to meet. Neither of these senses seems as idiomatic as the other 4. DCDuring TALK 01:26, 25 July 2010 (UTC)

In the phrases "come down and see me" and "come up and see me", the down and up having nothing to do with direction, they're purely phrasal. It's perhaps worth keeping the first definition as (literally). Note the to decrease sense isn't all that idiomatic, either. Mglovesfun (talk) 11:56, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
In what sense does a price "come#Verb" when it "comes down". We are clearly in a realm of figurative use, but I am not sure how one could word a figurative sense of "come: that applied. I can't identify the specific sense at MWOnline's entry for come. Is it 2e: "to enter or assume a condition, position, or relation" ? DCDuring TALK 15:07, 26 July 2010 (UTC)


I lean towards deleting "to visit", but keeping "to descend" (as prices sometimes do, as DCDuring points out). - -sche (discuss) 02:16, 16 July 2011 (UTC)
