Spanish translations[edit]

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.

Transitive verb?[edit]

There seems to be a transitive sense of this verb now. Try searching the Web for "shop the menswear lookbook" or "shop our catalog". Equinox 10:42, 20 May 2012 (UTC)

Interjection[edit]

Can anyone confirm the sense used to get someone's attention in a shop please? Not heard of it. Mglovesfun (talk) 09:50, 20 October 2012 (UTC)

A Web search for "shouted shop" finds some likely examples. Equinox 04:51, 5 September 2015 (UTC)
  • 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?[edit]

Seems to mean something like "join an academic course on a trial basis" - perhaps related to workshop? Equinox 17:29, 31 January 2016 (UTC)

  • 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.
This would seem to be an extension of window-shop. SemperBlotto (talk) 10:14, 19 April 2016 (UTC)
