Translations: In Croatian more apropriate would be: "novac", and not "pare". Word "pare" is used in pejorative meaning or as a joke. (pavor)
The "definitions" of money previously given were actually descriptions (excepting #6, an incorrect definition) of popular usage rather than a definition of what money is .
- "#1" is covered in the new definition.
- "#2" removed - inaccurate - other entities implies a private institution which cannot guarantee the value of currency without the state; the remainder is covered in the new definition.
- "#6" removed - inaccurate - money does not have intrinsic value, this would be a commodity.
- 2nd 3rd and 4th items under synonyms are word-for-word repetitions of previous definitions.

Maintained Format: Simple Addition
Since I was being accused of mangling & destroying the formatting of the money page without any specific explanation or constructive criticism, I reluctantly conceded to this one simple addition:
- A legally or socially binding conceptual contract of entitlement to wealth, void of intrinsic value, payable for all debts and taxes, and regulated in supply.

- Yes, monies is a real word. It is a rather technical word that means amounts of money for payment or collection. —Stephen 15:55, 9 April 2009 (UTC)
- That’s ڢلوس (flūs, "money"), which is the plural form of ڢلس (fils, "a small coin"). In Standard Arabic script (to the east of Morocco), it is spelled فلوس. —Stephen 20:47, 31 May 2009 (UTC)
I removed item 1 because it was excessively wordy and not in keeping with a dictionary format. 2share 02:05, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
