Adjective[edit]

Not sure that this meets any of our adjective tests. However searching for "is monster" and "very monster" on Google Books gets tonnes of hits, none of which initially seem to be adjectival use. But I wouldn't fancy searching through them all to check. Mglovesfun (talk) 10:29, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Monster hand, monster draw[edit]

We need a sense to cover in poker 'monster hand', and 'monster draw'. Not limited to poker, it was just the first example that came into my head. I guess it's the 'something very large' sense used figuratively. Or it could be the prodigy sense extent to include non-humans. I'm not convinced it does mean a prodigy, which has four noun definitions, and I don't know which one we're referring to. Someone who's very good at something, ok yes, like Roger Federer is a tennis monster, but I wouldn't call hum a prodigy as he's not young enough anymore. Mglovesfun (talk) 10:43, 10 June 2012 (UTC)
