I had a look at my last two, Paul, as I sent them and as I received them.  
Neither contained any quotation from the post to which I replied, which was 
appended. But the quotation from a dictionary may have been reformatted in the 
version you got. If so, this may be clearer (I have deleted part and changed 
the punctuation)


  1. homesickness n. grief or sadness after the lost or departed, longing, 
yearning,  nostalgia,  wistfulness, earnest desire

I'll look through posts where I do quote a poster  later
