I cannot find this word in any dictionary so wonder re its source. --Fleanetha (talk) 23:56, 17 January 2019 (UTC)

Here's the Wiktionary entry for it: linky. --Brandingopportunity (talk) 02:10, 18 January 2019 (UTC)
Also List of animal names; derived from genus gallus, primarily used in veterinary contexts. cf. 1, 2. -Oznogon (talk) 02:16, 18 January 2019 (UTC)
An alternative: gallinaceous. -Oznogon (talk) 02:39, 18 January 2019 (UTC)
What larks? Strange how some of these types of adjectives are commonplace, like canine, bovine, feline, and yet we have gaps for other common creatures. I am afraid I am still suspicious of 'galline'. If a word is just in Wiktionary/Wikipedia and in no professional dictionary, I am dubious. Oz's example from Progress in Nucleic Acid Research and Molecular Biology, Volume 40 is use as a noun. So, we are left with categoric use as an adjective in the technical paper, "Renal LRP2 expression in man and chicken is estrogen-responsive". Let's agree it's not common parlance. Nor is 'gallinaceous', but at least it's in several dictionaries - good spot. I'll add that as the primary adj. then. What we learn on this wiki is quite something. --Fleanetha (talk) 11:28, 18 January 2019 (UTC)
