Talk:lay waste

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

Doesn't this also refer to "waste" in the sense of "excrement", making it a synonym for excrete? Somewhere I had gotten the impression this was the traditional meaning of the term, with "destroy" being a more modern usage that might have come about from a contextual misinterpretation.
