SAMPA pronunciation[edit]

Shouldn't be there /"kUSn=/ or /"kUS@n/ instead of /"kUS=@n/? In this word "n" is a syllabic consonant, not "S"... Maro 20:59, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

circular...[edit]

Nice circular definition :

cushion : to provide a soft pillow cushion

It's not circular. The use of "cushion" refers to an earlier definition, not to itself. It would be circular if the sense of the word used was the very sense being defined, or if the definition of term A uses a term B whose definition includes term A. —Internoob (DiscCont) 17:29, 27 July 2010 (UTC)

Additional Meaning[edit]

In a translating dictionary[1] I came across the entry,"noix pâtissière...cushion of veal" and I can't find a usable definition of either the English or the French phrase, although from the context it's a culinary usage.
