Could someone, please, add Latin translation of this word?
I'm not happy with some of the Spanish translations provided for "shop" : "changarro" is not any shop but a "small shop" in Mexico ; "pulpuría" is not any shop but a "grocery" in Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Honduras. Also, "almacén" IS any shop, but in Colombia. So these translations need some accuracy and pulpería should be deleted, since it is already included as a translation for grocery.

- This is very old-fashioned. I haven't heard it for over 50 years. Typically, you would call it in a small, local shop where the owner was in the residential part of the building at the time. SemperBlotto (talk) 10:12, 19 April 2016 (UTC)
Another missing transitive verb?
- Angela Lee '14-'15, who shopped the course and hopes to enroll, said that it was “unfortunate” so many people wanted to take a course […]
- Luo said she only shopped the course for 15 minutes because “there was no point in staying” when she could not even see the professor.
It should not be re-entered without careful consideration.
rfd-sense: an organisation using specified programming languages or software, often exclusively.
An unnecessarily specific form of "Workplace; office. Used mainly in expressions such as shop talk, closed shop and shop floor." Similar forms can be found well before computer programming was a thing. For example, welding places that specialize in arc welding are "arc shops":
- 1935, Welding Engineer
- It is bad enough when two shops of equal merit as to personnel and equipment cut prices to get work, but it is even worse when a gas shop tries to compete with an arc shop for arc jobs, or an arc shop competes with a gas shop for gas jobs.
- 1979, Association of Iron and Steel Engineers, Year Book - Association of Iron and Steel Engineers
- The transfer of the Llanwern-type collection technology to an arc shop was relatively simple.
and a steelworks that uses the Bessemer process is a "Bessemer shop":
- 1956, Great Britain. Iron and Steel Board, British Iron and Steel Federation, Iron and Steel Statistics Bureau, British Steel Corporation, British Independent Steel Producers' Association, Iron and Steel
- The next steelmaking plant to be laid down in the area was a Bessemer shop and rail mill at Moss Bay, Workington, in 1877.
- 1971, Harold E. McGannon, The Making, Shaping and Treating of Steel
- In addition to the auxiliary equipment necessary for an open-hearth shop, much of the apparatus necessary for a Bessemer shop also had to be provided.
- I think we should try to somehow define or at least illustrate the differences between seller/fabricator of certain goods or service (as in the welding example) and more-or-less-exclusive user of a given technology or brand (as in the Bessemer examples). The latter would be a despecialization of the sense under challenge.
