I think sentences are very important especially for people who aren't native speakers. However the sentences on this page aren't very helpful:

John is a playful fellow. does not in any way help to understand the proper meaning and uses of playful. Actually, we are pretty playful in our romantic life. is a little better, though it requires of the reader a quite good understanding of what a playful romantic life entails, thereby it is not a very good pick either I think (eg. for children this sentence risks to be meaningless or uncomprehensible). 15:03, 1 July 2010 (UTC)

Yeah using an example sentence for an adjective of 'to be + said adjective' is totally useless. I might add well add the example sentence 'a chair' to the noun chair. Mglovesfun (talk) 15:08, 1 July 2010 (UTC)
