get sick[edit]

"To become ill" is almost idiomatic. Keep? --Connel MacKenzie 05:14, 4 February 2008 (UTC)
This can also mean "to vomit." So can "be sick," of course, but I don't think "sick" by itself normally has this meaning. -- Visviva 15:06, 4 February 2008 (UTC)
I'm okay with that definition. Changed to rfd-sense. DAVilla 07:07, 5 February 2008 (UTC)
Wow it means "vomit"? Just in American English, right? Kappa 01:45, 8 February 2008 (UTC)
I think it's regional; I've heard it, and I'd understand it, but I'd never use it, and I don't think most Midwesterners would. (Of course, ~30–40% of the time I say on Wiktionary that a word/sense/construction doesn't exist in my region, it's less than a month or two before I hear someone use it in real life, so who knows?) —RuakhTALK 02:42, 8 February 2008 (UTC)
Keep, to contrast with "vomit" sense. DCDuring TALK 11:03, 7 December 2008 (UTC)
