My dictionary sais term 3 (possessing great wealth) is tipically British while term 4 (drunk) is an Americanism. Is there any source to prove it? Ferike333 20:04, 10 January 2010 (UTC)

loaded

Tagged but not listed: a whole four adjective senses:

  • Burdened by some heavy load; packed.
  • (of a projectile weapon) Having a live round of ammunition in the chamber; armed.
  • (baseball) Pertaining to a situation where there is a runner at each of the three bases.
  • (gaming, of a die or dice, also used figuratively) Weighted asymmetrically, and so biased to produce predictable throws.

I guess one would need to show how they're actual adjectives, rather than being the past participle of load. -- Liliana 01:16, 23 July 2011 (UTC)

Pingku has already found cites supporting adjectivity (for the first and fourth senses) that look good to me. DCDuring TALK 01:48, 23 July 2011 (UTC)
Move to rfv. I'd instinctively say that loaded has at least one adjectival sense. Apparently that's already supported by citations, so I'll shut up now. Mglovesfun (talk) 21:24, 23 July 2011 (UTC)
