Talk:pull out all the stops
- Note: the below discussion was moved from the Wiktionary:Tea room.
as in: "To mark the anniversary festivities of the founding of the People’s Republic, the authorities will pull out every stop to ensure a trouble-free capital."
The meaning seems clear from context, is this standard usage? If so, should an entry be created?--188.8.131.52 01:47, 20 January 2009 (UTC)
- I'm not sure if it's standard. It's definitely not as common as pull out all the stops. —RuakhTALK 22:35, 20 January 2009 (UTC)
