fall in[edit]

These senses:

  1. to join
  2. to grow deferent
  3. to be charmed

I suspect these may be for "fall in with" or something similar, but they don't seem to be for "fall in". — Paul G 17:15, 2 February 2008 (UTC)

The first sense you ask about is as in "he fell in with a bad crowd". Yes, it's with with, but I don't know whether that's part of the verb.—msh210 17:52, 4 February 2008 (UTC)
I have added fall in with as it is an accepted phrasal verb in most dictionaries. The two meanings join and defer are in that entry and should, I believe, be eliminated from fall in. I have no idea about charmed, it doesn't seem to fit anywhere. -- Algrif 19:03, 6 February 2008 (UTC)
