countdown[edit]

I don't think that this is used as a verb. It might be an alternate spelling of misspelling of infinitive and 1st, 2nd, 3rd pl. present forms of "count down". But my thinking is mostly based on the implausiblity of the inflected forms, wherever the inflecting morphemes are placed. DCDuring 15:27, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

I'm definitely inclined to agree. Countdowning...hah. — [ ric ] opiaterein — 15:35, 21 December 2007 (UTC)
I agree wholeheartedly. But don't laugh too soon. I had an ugly surprise when I questioned strikethrough a few months back!! - Algrif 19:59, 22 December 2007 (UTC)
Remove. I just double-checked "countdown" in every dictionary entry turned up by Onelook and in the OED as well. None of them recognizes a verb sense. -- WikiPedant 20:10, 22 December 2007 (UTC)

countdown[edit]

2 rfd senses for 2 PoS:

  • Proper noun: wrong case. name of UK TV show.
  • Verb: doesn't inflect, ought to be count-down or count down
RfV not likely to help. DCDuring 18:40, 8 December 2007 (UTC)
  • Delete the tv show sense. Verb sense should go to rfv. bd2412 T 16:57, 19 December 2007 (UTC)
