Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
That's not what the Webster tells me.

partially - Definition from the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary

1archaic : in a biased manner : with partiality2: to some extent : in some degree

As in 'partial collapse', I guess?

Or is that just US English?

No, it can be used to mean "partly". It's just a bugbear of mine (ie I don't think it's good usage).

BTW, I just heard a French sovereignist MEP explain the collapse by successive enlargements of the EU, leading to the cobbling together of a larger chamber...
