hash[edit]

The definition "Clipped form of hashish, a drug derived from the cannabis plant" should go under a different etymology. I started doing this, then got disheartened as I felt I was creating an infeasible number of heading levels that no reader could keep track of and/or relegating the "hashish" definition to a position where it was completely "lost". Anyway, just thought I'd mention it in case anyone else wants to tackle it.

Adjective: "Hashed, chopped into small pieces"; sole citation:

  • 1855, William Makepeace Thackeray, The Newcomes
    The Colonel, himself, was great at making hash mutton, hot-pot, curry, and pillau.

This does not seem to behave as an adjective. The citation and the derived terms in the Adjective PoS section seem to me to illustrate, without exception, attributive use of the noun. DCDuring (talk) 20:28, 9 December 2017 (UTC)

Isn't it a matter of WT:RFVE to find better citations? -84.161.6.246 00:51, 10 December 2017 (UTC)
I agree it's an RFV question. Equinox 03:14, 11 December 2017 (UTC)
Just move the quote – which does not support the adjectival sense – to the citation page and delete. This is too hard to verify. Palaestrator verborum (loquier) 20:01, 13 December 2017 (UTC)
That's an alt form of mutton hash AFAIK. —AryamanA (मुझसे बात करेंयोगदान) 12:35, 11 January 2018 (UTC)

Relocated from RFD. Word appears to be an attributive noun rather than a true adjective.

RFV-failed only the attributive use of the noun was found. Kiwima (talk) 20:32, 4 May 2018 (UTC)
