Summary0000050: (Dis)allowing descriptions of kinds more specific than objects
DescriptionThe example source results in this problem report:

Problem. In the line 'tally all open doors', the text 'all open
doors' seems to be a description of an object, but a description
of a thing was required.
Minimal Source Text To Reproduce
Home is a room.

To tally (D - a description of things): say "Too lazy to actually
do anything."

When play begins: tally all open doors.
Additional InformationI'm filing this under 'compiler rejects valid code', but it might
be a case of 'compiler accepts invalid code' instead, depending on
whether or not descriptions of more specific kinds are supposed to
be allowed like this (the invalid code being the phrase definition,
in that case).
TagsNo tags attached.
Effect(serious) Compiler rejects valid code

Confirmed. Like the reporter, I'm not sure how to file this. It might also be ``Error message is badly worded.''

This example provides the 1500th case for the Inform test suite - fanfares, balloons, cakes with many candles, etc.
