smoker's cough[edit]

SoP. The cough is evidently from a smoker already. TeleComNasSprVen 07:20, 17 October 2010 (UTC)

  • Keep. Not every cough from a smoker is smoker's cough. It's a specific thing. Ƿidsiþ 07:24, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
    • keep since a person does not necessarily need to smoke to get a smoker's cough. -- Prince Kassad 09:33, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Keep. It is used as if to describe a medical condition or symptom. DCDuring TALK 11:15, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
Keep, same reasons. Mglovesfun (talk) 11:16, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
Keep, I concur. ---> Tooironic 13:26, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Keep per previous commenters. I've added a cite that I think highlights Widsith's point. —RuakhTALK 21:35, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
If Prince Kassad or DCDuring is right (and I don't doubt it), then we need a better definition than the current "The cough someone gets as a result of habitual smoking"!​—msh210 (talk) 18:56, 18 October 2010 (UTC)
Added "persistent" to the definition. --Hekaheka 11:46, 23 October 2010 (UTC)
