living memory[edit]

Does "memory" really mean living memory on its own? Mglovesfun (talk) 14:10, 31 January 2011 (UTC)

I don't think so. DCDuring TALK 00:07, 25 July 2011 (UTC)

The following information has failed Wiktionary's deletion process.

It should not be re-entered without careful consideration.


Sense: "Used synonymously with "in recent history"; e.g. in living memory"

I have copied from Webster 1913: "The time within which past events can be or are remembered."

in recent memory; in living memory

The usage example under the RfDed sense is OK as a usex, but is not durably archived. DCDuring TALK 00:29, 25 July 2011 (UTC)

Delete. We already have living memory and recent memory. ---> Tooironic 23:15, 25 July 2011 (UTC)
Perhaps rfv, as I've never met this meaning - living memory and recent memory being idioms. But outright deletion is okay with me. Mglovesfun (talk) 10:00, 26 July 2011 (UTC)
