I just created an entry for wild-ass (to link from SWAG). I was in the process of adding all the standard defs when I noticed that you deleted it. Can you please undelete and let me finish the definition?--Apelbaum 23:14, 19 July 2009 (UTC)
- I deleted it because it was all very wrong. I'll restore it so you can fix it.—msh210℠ 23:21, 19 July 2009 (UTC)
- Thanks for the revert. What do you think about the current update?--Apelbaum 23:30, 19 July 2009 (UTC)
- Better, but still with errors. The pronunciation given is that of ass (I suppose). The definitions given, at least some of them, are those of wild ass (rather than wild-ass): I don't think wild-ass refers to an animal of any kind, nor, indeed, is a noun, though I could well be wrong. I don't see who ass and smart ass are terms derived from wild-ass. Etc.—msh210℠ 23:34, 19 July 2009 (UTC)
How come it is claimed to be pronounced /wɪld æs/ and not /waɪ̯ld æs/? @DCDuring? Is the word wild sometimes pronounced like this? MacMillan gives /waɪ̯ld/ for wild boar and wild cat, Wiktionary also for the former. Fay Freak (talk) 10:14, 10 August 2018 (UTC)
- I'm no good with IPA. I don't know the best venue to get this cleared up. Maybe RFT. DCDuring (talk) 14:46, 10 August 2018 (UTC)
