Could the word 'Facies' use a disambiguation page? Seems like the medics use it too but in a different sense - I don't know how to set up a disambiguation page but would be grateful if someone could Infilms 00:09, 11 November 2005 (UTC)

Pronounciation: fay-sees? fak-ees? fash-ees? 75.101.23.13 (talk) 23:44, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

When I studied Geology ([[University of Southampton)), the lecturers all pronounced it "FASS-ees". I don't know if that's a universal pronounciation though. Wardog (talk) 10:58, 13 April 2011 (UTC)

Is the word facies singular or plural? It should be singular, but is used for both cases in the first 2 sentences of the article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 96.53.68.38 (talk) 21:58, 7 March 2011 (UTC)

The pronunciation of the word which I had offered up has been supplaced by another - I think it right to offer up both since there are variations in its pronunciation. Anyone else care to comment? cheers Geopersona (talk) 05:55, 9 March 2012 (UTC)
I've added that back as an alternative. Mikenorton (talk) 08:13, 9 March 2012 (UTC)
