In its latest issue the Oxford English Dictionary transcribes the BE pronunciation of "pack" as /pak/. Although the open front unrounded vowel is not used for similar words like "black", "racks" or "track" (afaik, it isn't used in English at all). What's so special about "pack"? Is this pronunciation actually common practice among BE speakers? --Melkom 16:09, 12 January 2010 (UTC)

Rugby sense[edit]

We have a sense saying "(rugby) The team on the field." Does this correspond to Webster 1913's senses? "The forwards who compose one half of the scrummage; also, the scrummage." Is there another rugby sense here (perhaps dated) that we should add? Equinox 01:47, 6 April 2015 (UTC)

To pack a punch, a wallop, etc.[edit]

Does any sense cover this? Equinox 21:31, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
