  1. Capable or deserving to be admitted, accepted or allowed; allowable, permissible, acceptable.
    • 2018, James Lambert, “Anglo-Indian slang in dictionaries on historical principles”, in World Englishes, volume 37, page 255:
      Moreover, the term [...] is well recorded in British and Australian sources from the 1840s onwards, while the earliest Anglo-Indian evidence only extends as far back as 1865 and so does not hold precedence. Thus, deriving the term from Hindustani is not chronologically admissible on present evidence.
  2. (artificial intelligence) Describing a heuristic that never overestimates the cost of reaching a goal.
