- Yes, absolutely. --Connel MacKenzie 06:06, 13 December 2006 (UTC)
There are a few meanings that I'm not sure are already covered:
- to keep in the sense of "keeping a promise"
- as in "How are you keeping?", (How are you?) --Hhaayyddnn 11:25, 9 October 2010 (UTC)
- I would add "it will keep" as in "it can wait", eg in John Wyndham's Meteor: "I'm not going to have my dinner kept waiting and spoiled. Whatever it is, it will keep." (Also cf eg .) --Droigheann (talk) 12:40, 7 December 2014 (UTC)
- I think the promise is sense 1: "not to intermit or fall from; to maintain"; we already have "keep one's word" as an example there. Your second one, "how are you keeping?", seems to be part of the third supersense ("to hold or be held in a state"), but it's hard to say which subsense would apply. The third sense (food will keep) is 3.3: "to remain edible or otherwise usable". Equinox ◑ 16:09, 7 December 2014 (UTC)
