Spelling of last name[edit]

Please correct the spelling of Marté's last name in the title of the article. There should be an accent on the e.(cur | prev) 16:50, 9 July 2006‎ 69.122.93.106 (talk)‎ . . (143 bytes) (+36)‎ . . (→‎Spelling of last name) (undo)

No there is not mistake, it shouldn't be any accent. Oscar 20:15, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
Added sources, there is no accent, needs moving back. The maternal name however should have accents and now does. In ictu oculi (talk) 03:39, 9 November 2012 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: Move. Clear consensus that "Marté" is incorrect, but no consensus on whether to remove the diacritic from Dámaso. Cúchullain t/c 17:17, 10 December 2012 (UTC)


Dámaso MartéDámaso Marte – just like the Alfredo Marte's case, Marte is not written with any mark. Osplace 02:20, 17 November 2012 (UTC)

  • Support - per almost universal en.wp practice accurate spelling of Spanish names, except one. In ictu oculi (talk) 12:59, 17 November 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose - It seems odd to move from two diacritics to one. Either both or none as far as I am concerned.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 15:50, 17 November 2012 (UTC)
Tony, this isn't "moving from two diacritics to one", this is "moving from inaccurate spelling to accurate spelling" per WP:BLP: "We must get the article right. Be very firm about the use of high-quality sources." I know that it's tempting to mispell people who have Green Cards, after all if they come to our country we should give them English names right, but he's still a Dominican citizen and we don't deliberately mispell non-US citizens names when articles have reliable sources which spell their names accurately. In ictu oculi (talk) 02:22, 19 November 2012 (UTC)
Anyone can find umpteen sources that fail WP:IRS and WP:BLP for any foreigner's name, but that isn't how en.wp works.

WP:RS Information icon.svg Context matters

The reliability of a source depends on context. Each source must be carefully weighed to judge whether it is reliable for the statement being made and is the best such source for that context.

To decide how a Dominican name is spelled we need quality printed sources enabled for Spanish such as Sporting News Baseball Guide: The Ultimate Baseball Almanac 2006 Page 217 "White Sox traded LHP Dámaso Marte to the Pirates for IF/OF Rob Mackowiak." - In ictu oculi (talk) 01:57, 19 November 2012 (UTC)
Perhaps Dominican Today would know his "Dominican name". Kauffner (talk) 07:17, 19 November 2012 (UTC)
READ THE GUIDELINE. In ictu oculi (talk) 13:16, 19 November 2012 (UTC)
It says, "follow the general usage in reliable sources that are written in the English language" (WP:DIACRITICS) and "The choice between anglicized and local spellings should follow English-language usage" (WP:UE). Kauffner (talk) 14:49, 19 November 2012 (UTC)
Thank you for the reminder that that other guideline has a disruptive edit by a banned editor on top. Nevertheless, we'd have to have a very good reason for deliberately mispelling one Dominican citizen from the whole of en.wp when we don't mispell the others and we also don't deliberately mispell Americans with accents on their names. In ictu oculi (talk) 02:39, 29 November 2012 (UTC)
Diacritics, interesting use in english: None. But there are names using some, like Beyoncé Knowles. A huge store like Amazon knows how it is. You can read the album cover Beyoncé, but Amazon writes her name as Beyonce under artist. I still attached to Dámaso Marte like Yahoo! Sports source. About what Kauffner says, Dominican Today do not include any marks, at all. If a different decision have to be made, different to the Alfredo Marte's case, please follow the discussion. I am very, very sure there is not such name like Dámaso Marté. Osplace 15:12, 4 December 2012 (UTC)
