Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Lately I've often seen "the crazy" used similarly to "craziness", eg: "I would read Freep but the crazy there is just too thick". Not sure how this should be handled though.

Filled with foolish or unreasoned affection.[edit]

We need to split or modify this sense, "I'm crazy about you" doesn't imply foolish or unreasoned. I think the sense is slightly off, I wonder if it's a Webster 1913 import. Mglovesfun (talk) 09:45, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

Or "I'm crazy about my daughter". Fixed, feel free to review. Mglovesfun (talk) 22:24, 23 June 2012 (UTC)

Etymology[edit]

Doubt whether a fuller etymology can be found than that presented on the Main Entry. The O.E.D. in the many volumes was safer than that online - I have found that! Andrew H. Gray 22:10, 20 October 2015 (UTC) Andrew (talk)
