Needs French, but it will be complicated . Mglovesfun (talk) 11:00, 3 March 2010 (UTC)

Two different genders and 2 plurals, eh? Strange, but I'm sure out {{fr-noun}} could handle that. The definitions will be easy enough least the first one # {{Canada|lang=fr}} {{l|en|party}} {{gloss|social event}} --Rising Sun talk? 11:04, 3 March 2010 (UTC)

Throwing a party[edit]

Why do you throw a party? What's the origin of that expression? - 14:37, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

One of the meanings of throw is to give by way of entertainment, but I don’t think anybody knows when throw took on this sense. —Stephen 20:19, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

English noun[edit]

How is sense 8 different from 7? 17:36, 4 December 2010 (UTC)

Do you mean 8 and 9 or 7 and 8. Seven and eight differ in that 8 does not involve people, among other things. DCDuring TALK 22:52, 26 December 2010 (UTC)

I play games online, whenever people start a party they mean to involve actual people (though not in person, yes) instead of their gaming character/profile. 12:13, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

Come to think of it, sense 9 is problematic to me as well. To whom is wiktionary trying to explain this? If someone of an old generation would see a "group of characters controlled by the player", is he really incapable of seeing the characters in their artificial world? Should we create definitions for everything that is in games? 12:19, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
