scope Edit

My grasp of the english language is failing me... would this be a natural place for things looking more like a band-aid, or is the scope of the word "bandage" more limited to complex things that get wrapped around you by a nurse? -- Capricorn (talk) 17:37, April 1, 2016 (UTC)

See "The Alternative Factor" reference for something along those lines. I would guess so. --LauraCC (talk) 21:24, April 1, 2016 (UTC)

Honestly I'm like literally asking if the word bandage is commonly used to denote band aid like things - or if band aids can be described as bandages without issue (I have something that looks kinda like an alien band-aid, and don't know if it can be here or should be in unnamed medical tech). I'm not a native speaker, and while my English is generally pretty good (or at least I'd like to think so), in this case I just don't know. -- Capricorn (talk) 22:29, April 1, 2016 (UTC) Well, to find the one I mentioned above, I had to chakoteya search the word "plaster" - that's another term for it. Why don't you ask yahoo answers?

Personally, I think just as we had the question of tissue paper/handkerchief, this isn't that much of a stretch. --LauraCC (talk) 17:34, April 3, 2016 (UTC)
