Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

in 55 years, I have never heard the word "solder" being used as "joint" -- not in plumbing, electronic circuits, building wiring. Cem BSEE 13:00, 29 December 2006 (UTC)

Three American pronunciations? We get it, they say 'sodder' in the US. Seems like a waste of space to have it three times. 90.194.162.102 00:23, 25 September 2010 (UTC)

So you want the homophones added?  :P --EncycloPetey 19:18, 7 June 2010 (UTC)


etymology[edit]

The etymology is contradicted by what all major dictionaries and http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=solder say. On the other hand, the forms offered in those sources are not even mentioned in http://quod.lib.umich.edu/cgi/m/mec/med-idx?type=boolean&q1=solder&rgn1=Anywhere&operator1=And&q2=&rgn2=Anywhere&operator2=And&q3=&rgn3=Anywhere&size=First+100 --Espoo (talk) 09:10, 14 April 2015 (UTC)
