No potential for this to become encyclopedic, just a dictionary def. Should either be deleted or a redirect to idiot. Zachlipton 21:34, 28 Nov 2004 (UTC)

  • My understanding is that idiotisms are linguistic usages that are idiosyncratic to an individual, a family, or a small social circle, so circumscribed that they have not entered a general vocabulary. What's here would be no help to write an article on them, though. Delete. -- Smerdis of Tlön 22:26, 28 Nov 2004 (UTC)
    • According to it can be either, but in its present state the entry should just be deleted unless someone is going to rewrite the whole thing now. Zachlipton 23:28, 28 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete: I thought those were idiolectisms (as opposed to ideolectisms). At any rate, this is a dictdef. Geogre 03:44, 29 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete. --MPerel 19:46, Dec 1, 2004 (UTC)
