Talk:right of way
Definitions 2 and 3 are basically the same. Should they be combined.--Dmol 21:31, 2 November 2006 (UTC)
- They seem very different to me. 2 defines an abstract notion (a right) whereas 3 is a rather physical thing which has a specific location. Ncik 21:52, 2 November 2006 (UTC)
You're right, but I think my def is wrong. Right of way is the authority to pass through a path or field ect, not the actual location. I'll think of a better definition, unless you have one in mind already. --Dmol 21:56, 2 November 2006 (UTC)
- www.dictionary.com has "a path or route that may lawfully be used". Ncik 22:20, 2 November 2006 (UTC)
It really is a pity we don't have an organized way to incorporate this sort of content into the entry... I'm tempted to place this just below the definitions, but perhaps someone has a better idea? (I'm not sure if the fencing sense is actually illustrated there; they're doing something with foils anyway.) -- Visviva 16:46, 1 February 2008 (UTC)
In which sense should "way" be taken ? As a "road" or "path from one place to another" ?
