    Uh, being that we were discussing vernaculars, the urban dictionary does appear to be the likely choice since it covers...derrrrr....vernaculars.

    Which does nothing to diminish the fact that it covers every day vernaculars. Are you denying the vernacular definitions I presented from it or are you simply deflecting from the actual point by bitching over the source?

    If you are denying these definitions, perhaps you would like to present alternative definitions from another source.

    Show me the definitions for retarded in Webster's, then.

    Wait, let me do it for you...

    retarded

    sometimes offensive : slow or limited in intellectual or emotional development or academic progress
    I don't see how that makes any mention of a slang use for the word that equates to what Emanuel said. Nor do I see any nod to colloquialisms or vernaculars at all.

    So what was your problem with going to a vernacular dictionary again? Are you still not arguing against the definitions and just bemoaning the fact that the definitions were shoved down your pie hole and tasted a little like crow?

    One definition for Retarded is:

    Occurring or developing later than desired or expected; delayed.


    thus not all definitions of retarded are about people. For example, the growth of the tree was retarded after the cold winter last years.
