rapey usage example[edit]

the usage example of took (in the sexual sense) is both weirdly and inappropriately rape-y, and also not very clear. I suggest replacement by "the husband took his wife for the first time".

Additional English definition[edit]

Can another definition be added: to "take" a photograph? 05:00, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

Done; there was a redundant and incorrect definition in the list anyway. --EncycloPetey 05:13, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

"Take" as "Consider"[edit]

"Take safety serious" ... or is that "take safety seriously"?

Looks like an additional meaning of "take". Cheers, Stefan


I suggest a definition for take-or-pay. See, between others, this--Mac 09:37, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

Another def?[edit]

I would add this myself, but I'm not sure if it merits inclusion or is just a shortening of "take for a ride" or "take (someone) for all (they're) worth" (the last one doesn't appear to have an entry, I'm not even sure what the entry title would be with the pronouns in parentheses like "(someone)") E.g., "Pinkett angry that George betrayed trust, took him for $100K." And then the news story rephrases it as "Randal Pinkett told of getting ripped off for $100,000." In case using "take" in this sense (on its own) has enough "currency," it could be added.
