Unstageable[edit]

The stage relates to the severity of the wound or ulcer. Some wounds cannot be "staged"ː

"Pressure ulcers are localized areas of tissue necrosis that typically develop when soft tissue is compressed between a bony prominence and an external surface for a long period of time. Ulcers covered with slough or eschar are by definition unstageable. The base of the ulcer needs to be visible in order to properly stage the ulcer, though, as slough and eschar do not form on stage 1 pressure injuries or 2 pressure ulcers, the ulcer will reveal either a stage 3 or stage 4 pressure ulcer." -- Pressure Ulcers, Unstageable --Jonathan Webley (talk) 11:33, 31 May 2020 (UTC)

ratiuncule etymology[edit]

Link to page --> [[1]]. When you write ''Latinate derivative of ratio and cule'' do you mean to say that this word was constructed based on Latin, and thus that it is not borrowed from Latin ratiuncula? If so, do you have a source for this? Hk5183 (talk) 19:22, 2 June 2020 (UTC)

Latin ratiuncula Doesn't mean the same thing as ratiuncule. The latter is obviously based on the modern(ish) mathematical meaning of ratio. No doubt the coiner of the term was aware of ratiuncula, so it may have influenced the spelling, but not the meaning. Chuck Entz (talk) 04:36, 3 June 2020 (UTC)

mammalogy[edit]

Why do you think this is a problem entry? Looks great to me. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 06:25, 8 June 2020 (UTC)

I think there is some confusion between those various entries regarding which ones are mammals and which ones are breasts. I haven't had a chance to investigate which is why it's on my list. (The list will probably go ignored for ages, like most things on my user page; it just allows me to trim down my huge Wiktionary bookmarks folder.) Equinox 17:40, 15 June 2020 (UTC)
Ah, I see. I added one new sense to mammology, which I think was the only one missing. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 18:14, 15 June 2020 (UTC)

millet vs. sorghum[edit]

Re your question on editing tshwala: The definitions of millet and sorghum overlap. One definition of tshwala[2] says it is made from "sorghum millet". A quotation from 1803 says it is made from "Caffree corn", which is probably the same word as kafferkoring. I think both millet and sorghum in this context refer to Sorghum bicolor, which is a grass species native to Africa that has been cultivated for over 5,000 years.

International[edit]

Not just airports. "St Pancras International" is where Eurostar runs from. SemperBlotto (talk) 18:22, 6 July 2020 (UTC)

I've RFDed this, as it happens, since I think it's just the normal word capitalised by virtue of being part of a proper noun. Equinox 00:29, 9 July 2020 (UTC)
