From Wiktionary:Requests for cleanup.[edit]

Seven noun definitions listed need to be combined into two: #1) the act or agent of transporting (troops, mail, emotions, etc.) #2) obsolete: a deported convict. The definition(s) given for transit/mass transit should also be removed - you can't say "transport" to mean that. (Or is that a UK-ism?) --Connel MacKenzie 20:18, 15 July 2007 (UTC)

I've combined the two "vehicle used to transport" senses into one as per your suggestion. But I think it's right to keep this separate from the "act of transporting" sense. As for the convict, clearly we need to keep that as a significant historical definition, and not an obvious one. Widsith 16:54, 18 July 2007 (UTC)
  • Additional rfc: Pronunciation. Needs to be split by accent, not phonetic alphabet. DCDuring TALK 14:44, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

  • Thanks. Still long, but that's a separate matter. Striking, in the absence of an objection from CM. DCDuring TALK 16:30, 22 September 2008 (UTC)
