I think the article should stay. Will try an expansion to justify this tomorrow, need to get some sleep now. CFCF (talk) 00:59, 17 November 2013 (UTC)
This is very much a draft, but here is a suggestion, see the glenohumeral joint: User:CFCF/sandbox/Anatomical terms of motion. This would make the article behave more like a list, filling that function better, without intruding into this article. -- CFCF (talk) 12:19, 17 November 2013 (UTC)
I've also been reading up on different types of motions and Clinical Kinesiology and Anatomy by L. Lippert seems to be a good source. It speaks of motions in different ways such as linear, rectilinear, curvilinear and angular. -- CFCF (talk) 12:33, 17 November 2013 (UTC)
Not too good at kinesiology and biomechanics, but I'll give it a shot. CFCF (talk) 12:46, 17 November 2013 (UTC)
Did some work, I think it's going to need more, but I think this should be the article people turn to for an entry level explanation, while the main article is more of a list and takes into account kinesiology as well. Please comment or help expand on the work I did over on that page. CFCF (talk) 07:58, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
The article Anatomical landmark, as presently written doesn't warrant article status. "Anatomical landmark" is a vague, indefinite term that can describe points of reference in any organ system, not just gross external regions. There is no sense in having a separate article with a title that basically means "anatomical parts in an area of interest". A selection of Google Scholar results for "Anatomical landmark" yields "Antomical landmarks of": radical prostatecomy, femoral nerve block, rhomboid fossa, anterior fontanelle ultrasonography, and sacrospinous colpopexy operations performed for vaginal vault prolapse. A term with such broad usage is hardly worth creating a separate article for. --Animalparty-- (talk) 05:30, 4 February 2014 (UTC)
That would probably entail making a list of all nameable parts of the human body, and would not really help define what an anatomic landmark is. A reader interested in every nameable part might start with Glossary of anatomy or Category:Human anatomy. --Animalparty-- (talk) 07:57, 4 February 2014 (UTC)
Agree that we should merge these two articles, 'landmark' is a nebulous quantity that is hard to define and I feel unlikely to be expanded in the future. --LT910001 (talk) 15:02, 28 February 2014 (UTC)
I have completed this merge. --LT910001 (talk) 03:03, 2 March 2014 (UTC)
