Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary

I heard "substance" defined as "the quality of being important" and I was wondering if others agreed with this as a definition? —This comment was unsigned.

I reviewed other dictionaries' definitions and can't find support for that definition. But it is not out of the realm of possibility. It would just be quite a stretch from the existing meanings. Thanks for asking. Please comment here if you have any additional information on this meaning. DCDuring TALK 02:06, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
