Current senses #7 and #12 are probably the same, with variance based on cultural/idiomatic specificity. - Amgine/ t·e 22:42, 11 February 2017 (UTC)

What food or drink is this "whip"?[edit]

Is it whipped cream, or is it some other sense we are missing? Equinox 20:00, 24 August 2017 (UTC)

  • 1994, Grace Livingston Hill, The City of Fire (page 29)
    It was not in his unyellow soul to go back on his word without refunding the money, and a dollar of it was already spent to the Chinese fund, to say nothing of sundaes and sodas and whips.

As pointed out by @Amgine, sense #12 is a subset of sense #7. The context label may need to be expanded. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 07:11, 14 February 2017 (UTC)

For reference:
Sense 12: "(informal, slang) Car; automobile".
Sense 7: "(African American Vernacular) A mode of personal motorized transportation; an automobile, all makes and models including motorcycles, excluding public transportation."
I agree with merging the two, into something simplified, e.g. "A personal motor vehicle, whether a car or a motorcycle." --Dan Polansky (talk) 07:46, 20 September 2017 (UTC)

Sense 12 deleted. How to simplify sense 7 is a matter for editors working on that entry. bd2412 T 23:00, 24 November 2017 (UTC)
