Tea room discussion[edit]

Note: the below discussion was moved from the Wiktionary:Tea room.

Normally, the past of stick is stuck - but you can "stick" someone - i.e. use a stick to hit someone, and that past is sticked. How to convey this information? --Felonia 15:26, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

Look at how hung and hanged are referenced at hang. Should have usage note(s) explaining as with hang. For stick, the adhere/jam/place/etc senses (i.e. most) are stuck, and the others are sticked. The printing sense is missing. Robert Ullmann 15:36, 20 July 2008 (UTC)
And the aviation sense for the verb. E.g. "over sticked" (rare, and probably just SoP) and dead sticked. (we have dead sticking) Robert Ullmann 15:44, 20 July 2008 (UTC)
