I doubt that "Being in the harbour area." is either a noun or a definition of dock. I would believe docked, as an adjective. Can someone support the definition with a citation? -dmh 14:30, 24 Aug 2004 (UTC)

I think that person intended an attributive use of the noun. ...stabilizing the dock wall, including filling the culvert with concrete... Oh, no I don't, because it says it is used of a ship. Equinox 17:11, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

From Wikipedia[edit]

I erased the hebrew translations of "dock" in the sense of reduce (קיצוץ, לקצץ). In Hebrew, the word "reduce" is the same as the word "chop" and is not related (as in English) to the word "dock". Liso 12:10, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

That sort of parallelism isn't normally required, though maybe it should be. -- Visviva 11:35, 22 May 2008 (UTC)
Is the Hebrew word a fair translation of dock meaning cut off an animal's tail? --Una Smith 05:01, 19 October 2008 (UTC)


The Noun section seems to have accumulated a cruft of verbs: "the action of ...". Is that as it should be? --Una Smith 05:01, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

I noticed that too, I'm going to remove the verbs from the noun section. 01:45, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
Hold it a sec! A dock is a noun (the action of doing a verb). "The multiple docks in recent months have left workers with no money", shows how they can take plurals. Conrad.Irwin 01:52, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
