Talk:fat

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

Placing the noun at the top of the article seems like very bad logic to me. The most common meaning should come first, no matter the word class.

"Thick" is not really an accurate description

Plants?[edit]

Reading the noun def, you could almost believe that fats don't come from plants. A bit misleading, but I can't think of an appropriate improvement at the moment. ☸ Moilleadóir 13:19, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

Rfv-sense: "A person or animal that is overweight or obese." I can't imagine anyone saying "look at him, he's a fat" or "my cat is a fat". Originally tagged by an IP (thanks). Mglovesfun (talk) 16:49, 3 September 2010 (UTC)

RFV failed, sense removed. Admittedly, this is hard to search for; but I tried the best searches I could think of, and couldn't find even one cite. —RuakhTALK 20:25, 16 January 2011 (UTC)

RFV-sense "A poorly played golf shot where the ball is struck by the top part of the club head." Tagged but not listed. - -sche (discuss) 06:04, 30 September 2012 (UTC)

Never heard of it, though I'm not a big golf fan. I have found it in some on-line glossaries, so I'd imagine it exists, but citing it won't be easy at all. Mglovesfun (talk) 17:29, 1 October 2012 (UTC)
Strike that, google books:golf fat shot seems to produce enough usable hits for this to pass. Mglovesfun (talk) 17:31, 1 October 2012 (UTC)
So it does. Struck and detagged; kept. - -sche (discuss) 23:37, 1 October 2012 (UTC)
