Merge proposal[edit]

I think Castilianization and Hispanicization cover the same ground. Since Wikipedia articles are about things, not words, having two separate articles is a form of content forkery. It seems from a cursory look through Google's Ngram viewer, as well as JSTOR and Google Scholar, that Hispanicization is the more common term. But if someone wants to make the case that the merge should go the other way, that's fine. — Ƶ§œš¹ [ãːɱ ˈfɹ̠ˤʷɪ̃ə̃nlɪ] 03:19, 2 September 2012 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment IMHO I think that while Castilianization happens to communities of other West Iberian as well Basque, Aragonese, Occitano-Catalan and non-Romance-derived culture/language/religion, Hispanicization would be a better name for cultural assimilation outside actual Spanish metropolitan territory i.e. of Indigenous peoples, settlers of rivaling non-Hispanic nationalities (Europeans, Portuguese/Brazilians, U.S. Americans), foreign groups, the Reconquista "ideology"/sentiment and there goes, and of non-Imperialistic cultural/social/political influence in countries and regions such as Portugal, the Philippines, Southern Italy, Southern France and Southwestern United States, either in present or past. But I'm not particularly opposed to a merge, given the low development of both articles, so a section would not be a bad idea. Lguipontes (talk) 16:56, 4 September 2012 (UTC)
  • Support, but I think that Castilianization should be a section of the Hispanicization article, for what Lguipontes exposes.--HCPUNXKID (talk) 17:11, 15 October 2013 (UTC)
