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)[reply]

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


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)

Shouldn't crazed be added to the list of derived terms?[edit]

I would but I don't know much about wiki editing. 2A02:C7D:B747:2500:DDAD:D823:D5FC:D65B 18:52, 31 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]

That's derived from "craze", not "crazy", isn't it? Equinox 18:53, 31 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]

As intensifier[edit]

Should there be a separate sense to cover intensifying another adjective? "It's crazy hot outside" "It was crazy busy at the market" "That car is crazy small" LRuppert (talk) 02:57, 25 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

That's the adverb sense. It's already covered. Chuck Entz (talk) 03:45, 25 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
