Jump to navigation Jump to search

Despite the deinition, eminent also seems to have come to mean "forthcoming", or "very soon", as in "eminent release". --User:70.96.133.64

That would be a misspelling of imminent, my friend. --Wytukaze 18:52, 18 May 2005 (UTC)
Should it be a usage note, listed as a homophone, or both? --Connel MacKenzie 18:19, 21 May 2005 (UTC)
Hmm.. It should only be a usage note if it's a common enough mistake, and I've never encountered it before. Similarly, it should only be noted as a homophone if a standard dialect (or enough nonstandard dialects) pronounce these the same way; in mine, they don't sound the same, so I don't know. I'll hold off writing pronunciations for them until this can be determined. --Wytukaze 20:06, 22 May 2005 (UTC)
Indeed. They are rhymes, not exactly homophones. --Connel MacKenzie 20:13, 22 May 2005 (UTC)
