Kanmu versus Kammu[edit]

"Kanmu" or "Kammu", which one is right? Ryuch 07:28, 13 Oct 2004 -- diff?

There are many systems of romanization, that is, writing foreign words using the Roman alphabet. One system, which is conventional with the Japanese as well as foreign students learning Japanese, especially from a linguistic perspective, would spell it "Kanmu." Another system, which serves to communicate pronunciation to readers who don't speak Japanese, would write it "Kammu." So rather than a matter of right and wrong, it's a matter of purpose and readership. Personally, I believe "Kammu" better suits me, although "Kanmu" is more conventional among the Japanese and scholars. Fg2 07:56, Oct 13, 2004 -- diff?
Since this is an English wiki page, the romanization system used should be the one which best aids speakers of English. As this is generally the Hepburn System, I would suggest that "桓武" should be rendered as "Kanmu" not "Kammu", as is the standard for that system. --Antarctic-adventurer (talk) 05:50, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

In my view, the following are too much of a stretch in the context of Emperor Kammu:

Whatever the intention, this needs more explanation and discussion. --Tenmei (talk) 12:47, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

DOB[edit]

The first line of the article says he was born in 737, but the infobox says 735. Which is correct? LordAmeth (talk) 05:08, 16 January 2011 (UTC)

Move discussion in progress[edit]

There is a move discussion in progress on Talk:Emperor Jimmu which affects this page. Please participate on that page and not in this talk page section. Thank you. —RMCD bot 10:43, 13 August 2013 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the proposal was moved. --BDD (talk) 22:38, 22 October 2013 (UTC)

– Per WP:MOSJ, and for consistency with Emperor Ninmyō, Empress Genmei and Emperor Tenmu. The Imperial Household Agency also prefers the proposed spellings.[1][2][3][4] Every time I post one of these RMs I look through all the Google Books results and, honestly, I think I've demonstrated thoroughly enough that modern reliable print sources. If anyone else wants to take a shot this time, be my guest. But at this point I don't think it's necessary, because none of these moves have yet been opposed.

  • Support – It's inconsistent to spell the sequence as "nm" in some and "mm" in others when they're the same. --Article editor (talk) 16:36, 18 October 2013 (UTC)
