Jerome Charles Potts claims that dejection also means excrement. That’s a new sense on me. —Stephen 10:04, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

Cited for meaning "excrement" but not "urine" or "vomit". It's seemingly an archaic medical term (I've not found anything later than the early 1920s). [1] seems to say it's origins are in the 18th Century but I'm not sure. Thryduulf (talk)

RFV passed, -ish. Thanks for the cites, Thryduulf! —RuakhTALK 22:54, 4 September 2010 (UTC)
