Time for a change... I think this sums me up pretty well:
Things tend to turn out well when you worry, so that's probably good. - EmP
I still <333 wolves, though.

They almost always force you to look up some other form of the word because the definition they gave you includes the word itself.
Something that is fungible - usually used in plural
Gah! Gee, tha6nks a lot, dictionary. That's the most useful definition ever! Now I have to look up the adjective!
Granted, in this case, I was looking for the adjecttive anyway, but the noun form appeareed first, so I read that instead.
It's just annoying sometimes how you need to look things up twice, essentially, to get the actual meaning of a word.

What dictionary was this?

The online Meriam-Webster one. (www.m-w.com)
Though, I've found instances of this in all dictionaries, so it's hardly specific to that one.

Well, to be smug, my non online Shorter Concise Oxford (10 inches of dictionary) does not use the word 'fungible' anywhere in its definition of fungible.

I don't think I've used the word fungible enough in my life.
