A "term of endearment"[edit]

The 10th definition says "Used with a term of endearment in popular songs", as far I know, this is not limited merely to songs, not to mention merely to popular ones. Hence I'm changing it to "Used with a term of endearment". Gambler Justice 21:04, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

Zero[edit]

"Oh, it's like this" "Oh it's like that"[edit]

I'm not sure if this will make sense, but sometimes I hear "oh" being used when the speaker wants to bring in a point that they think someone else would say. But they usually follow with reasons why said point is wrong, ignorant, or somehow flawed... it's also kind of condescending. Anyway know what I'm talking about? 70.27.15.243 03:22, 25 September 2010 (UTC)

Redundant sense?[edit]

"Used with a term of endearment", i.e. "oh baby": isn't this just the vocative sense? Equinox 02:00, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

I agree. I came to the talk page to say just that. Considering I'm not the first to notice it, I think I'll go ahead and merge that sense into the vocative one. D4g0thur (talk) 16:09, 23 March 2014 (UTC)
