How does punishment mean "The act of treating as inferior to the rest"? Kappa 19:47, 19 March 2006 (UTC)

I've removed that definition, since I can't think of a sense in which it means that, along with the corresponding defintion of punish. Correct me if I'm wrong. GreetingsEarthling 06:04, 17 June 2006 (UTC)

Examples[edit]

Could you please add some examples of sentences with this word? Besides the different meanings, they can show the good usage of prepositions. From the more wide point, I suppose that the examples should be added, soon or later, to all basic English words because of their importance for learning. --95.165.193.54 09:09, 30 October 2013 (UTC)
