Talk:pipe

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

Muzak is sometimes described as "piped music" or "piped-in music", even though no pipes are involved. Does that mean we are missing a sense? Equinox 10:31, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

pipe[edit]

Rfd-redundant X 2:

  1. To decorate a cake using a pastry bag.
  2. To dab away moisture from.

I have tried to create a figurative sense that includes the "dab" sense. I am more confident that the "pastry bag" sense is included in "decorate with piping", which includes textiles and icing. DCDuring TALK 11:37, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

Probably delete the cake-specific sense but give "decorate with piping" a few diverse examples/citations. Equinox 12:08, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

Deleted second cake sense as redundant; Kept dabbing sense as not covered by other senses. --EncycloPetey 18:56, 4 July 2011 (UTC)
