除外 (lvl 31) - meaning

Hello team,

I am currently learning 除外 (lvl 31), which has 1 meaning : “exception”.

Yet, the example sentence is translated to “exclusion”:

その馬はソエにより競争除外となりました。
The horse was excluded from the race due to shin soreness.

Online refences (jisho, wiktionary) are listing both ‘exclusion’ and ‘exception’ as valid translations.

Can you please add ‘exclusion’ as a meaning of 除外?

Sincerly,

@Mods?

I think you’re probably having no trouble absorbing the meaning of this word, but just in case, here’s a little breakdown to help it stick better while waiting for the mods to reply:
除=‘to get rid of’; 外=‘outside’

When something is rejected and put outside, you get ‘exclusion’, and hence, a possible ‘exception’ (to the set in which it would otherwise be included).

It sounds like a valid synonym to be added to the item in general, but for now, you know you can add your own user synonym, right?

And that when making synonym or correction suggestions, the generally recommended way is by email.

Sure, we’ll add this one soon. But as @Leebo mentioned, if you have further content suggestions, a faster way to get our attention is either our email or live chat! (Thanks for the tag, @TheFlaminMunch :sparkles:)
