something else

Rfv-sense: (informal) Exceptionally good. Tagged but not listed. Highly doubtful. -- Liliana 20:45, 1 December 2011 (UTC)

No it's basically ok. I'm not sure about the part of speech. Exceptionally good is just one interpretation, it really means 'out of the ordinary; unusual' which can be positive (Usain Bolt is something else) or non-positive (the rain in Ireland is something else). We definitely need to cover this; what we don't definitely need to cover is the pronoun sense 'some other thing'. Mglovesfun (talk) 20:54, 1 December 2011 (UTC)
I agree (w/Mglovesfun). —RuakhTALK 00:46, 3 December 2011 (UTC)
As do I. ---> Tooironic 22:33, 3 December 2011 (UTC)
I would claim widespread use for it in MG's definition, though a good citation would be nice. DCDuring TALK 01:33, 4 December 2011 (UTC)
