I have some question about the usage of the verb "enter":
- New companies entered the market.
- New products entered the market.
According to definition 2 from this dictionary for "enter":
def 2: to start to take part in a particular activity or to work in a particular job
with the example usage sentence:
There are dozens of new companies entering the software market.
which suggests that sentence 1 is correct and sentence 2 is wrong.
But then, according to definition 3c from another dictionary for "enter":
def 3c: to appear for the first time in (something)
with this example usage sentence:
The company has several new products now entering the marketplace.
which suggests that sentence 1 is wrong and sentence 2 is the correct usage. What do native speakers think? Is either 1 or 2 wrong?
