liberty WHAT DOES IT REALLY MEAN?
- Well I always think of it as a vector quantity: it has direction as well as magnitude. Dbfirs 20:42, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
The link in Italian doesn't make sense but I'm not sure if it just needs explanation or if it's wrong. I'm not sure how to edit Wiktionary properly or how to verify this so I didn't change it.
(Under Italian, the word is listed as
liberty m. inv. 1. art nouveau
- In what way does it not make sense? There is an Italian word liberty which is a masculine invariant (no plural) noun that means the same as the English word art nouveau. --EncycloPetey 02:32, 4 January 2009 (UTC)
Second noun meaning
The example for the second noun meaning is wrong, it refers to a particular liberty, respectively, the liberty to speak freely. It has nothing to do with freedom from imprisonment, slavery or forced labour. Can somebody help find a new one? Meanwhile, i replaced it with the third article from the UDHR, i think it applies.
old: The condition of being free from imprisonment, slavery or forced labour.
The prisoners were at liberty to speak freely with their lawyers.
new: The condition of being free from imprisonment, slavery or forced labour.
Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.
