Could someone, please give the German translations, and then I could give the Hungarians surely. Ferike333 10:05, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

Rfv-sense: "To hang in suspense; to be pending; to be undetermined or undecided; as, a cause depending in court." How can depend be used in this way exactly? ---> Tooironic (talk) 06:28, 13 November 2016 (UTC)

It's archaic. Definitely real. See [1]. Equinox 19:12, 13 November 2016 (UTC)

Having just cited one archaic sense (see #depend), I'm RFVing another: "To serve; to attend; to act as a dependent or retainer." I searched for phrases like "depend[ing|ed] the king" and didn't find anything, and phrases like "depending on the king" seem to find only the usual senses of "depend", not this sense. - -sche (discuss) 02:19, 3 May 2017 (UTC)
