Merger[edit]

The river and the dam are a unity: merge them for encyclopedic treatment. --Wetman 09:30, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

I'm not sure I understand why one would want that, could you please eleborate? sephia karta 11:33, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

Merge proposal[edit]

Propose to merge Inguri Hydro Power Plant into this article because it is about the same subject.Beagel (talk) 20:09, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

Seconded. sephia karta 21:09, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
Merger completed.Beagel (talk) 12:49, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

Spelling[edit]

Is it correct Inguri or Enguri in English? Most sources use spelling Enguri, therefore I propose to rename this article correspondingly.Beagel (talk) 12:52, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

Well as you say, there is not one correct form in English. Enguri reflects the Georgian spelling, while Inguri reflects more closely the Russian and Abkhazian spellings (in fact Abkhazian spelling would be Ingur). I have always been under the impression that Inguri is the most widely used English form but I may be wrong. sephia karta 14:07, 8 November 2008 (UTC)
Probably you right about the sources of different spellings. Merging these articles I noticed that the EBRD, CE, different UN structures etc used mainly Enguri.Beagel (talk) 18:42, 8 November 2008 (UTC)
Googling in English-language internet gives more results for the variant with "i" (17200 vs 10 400). Furthermore Encyclopaedia Britannica uses Inguri variant also. So I think that we shouldn't change the name of the article. Alæxis¿question? 19:10, 8 November 2008 (UTC)
If Georgian sources prefer Enguri and Abkhazian prefer Ingur then I guess Inguri is a decent compromise :-P Nil Einne (talk) 06:05, 8 March 2010 (UTC)
