Is definition 1 correct? "A noun used in place of a noun" is meaningless. RSvK 05:50, 1 Jun 2004 (UTC)

Well that's one way to parse it. Another is [a noun] or [a pronoun used in place of a noun]. Feel free to make it less ambiguous though. — Hippietrail 15:56, 1 Jun 2004 (UTC)
Oops, missed that parsing. Thanks! I adjusted the definition. RSvK 16:05, 1 Jun 2004 (UTC)


Isn't substantive also an adverb, meaning substantively (refering to [noun] substantive), like there's activus (adj.) & active (adv.)? -IP, 18:08, 10 December 2014 (UTC)
