Dear LinguistList,

Just after reading that "key" cannnot be in predicate position (yet),
someone told me: "The bathroom was key" (as in after a long trip, one
of the pleasures of the destination was the restroom.)

That's not the same as seeing it in writing from an edited source, but
it feels like a step towards it.


Happy word hunting,
Barbara Pearson
