Talk:houseless

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

Houseless first evolved as an alternative, more conscious term than "homeless" which implied lack of tie to a locality. It has never been used as a synonym for "destitute." Any simple googling will confirm this, but the burden is on those who add content it is not my job to document why undocumented content gets deleted. This is a very contentious field to begin with so please stick to the rules.   गीता Brother Can You Spare A Dime - Unsparingly correcting prejudicial edits  Brothercanyouspareadime 19:57, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

Should we create a Simple Wiktionary?[edit]

Seriously, we should develope a Simple Wiktioinary to accompany Simple Wikipedia and actually two. One should be for ESL, the other for children, perhaps also at different grade levels.Brothercanyouspareadime 20:48, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

houseless

Noun: those who are believed to be without a right to use, through tenancy, ownership or license, any improved residential real property such as buildings, huts or other structures intended for human habitation; the unhoused.

Is it used? Is this the def? Context? Is there an associated adjective sense? Is the noun usage just a normal use of an adjective as a noun (fused head?)? Is it really synonymous with unhoused as a noun? DCDuring TALK 14:51, 1 June 2011 (UTC)
Added by a new user Brothercanyouspareadime (talkcontribs), me feeling is that it's just plain wrong. --Mglovesfun (talk) 11:14, 2 June 2011 (UTC)
