I've removed this def.
# (''ironic'') Not at all good.
#* ''That's another fine mess you've gotten us into!''
It's not really part of the definition that the term can be used ironically; it's simply the context that makes it ironic. That is to say, in the example sentence, fine does not mean "terrible", it still means "excellent", but in an ironic context.

Italian Adj. Feminine Plural + Singular.[edit]

First "Fine" is listed as the Singular M,F Adj. with plural form "Fini" meaning thin or fine. Then "Fine" is listed as the Feminine plural form of the Adj. "Fino." which also means thin or fine. Is this an error?

fine m, f ‎(masculine and feminine plural fini)



feminine plural of fino

Fine: Thorough (eng)[edit]

Can "fine" be used to mean "thorough" in english. I've heard it used this way (I'm a native) and I was planning to translate fine as "thorough" for translation into Latin, but this page seems to contradict that. 00:14, 26 January 2016 (UTC) (I'm also Qwed117, I just rarely sign in)

I'm not familiar with that. Can you give examples of the usage you have heard? Equinox 00:39, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
