Help with new article "Paul Oscar"[edit]

Hi, do help if you can with the following aspects of the new article "Paul Oscar", about the Icelandic pop singer, songwriter and D.J. Páll Óskar Hjálmtýsson:

  • Adding an IPA transcription of the pronunciation of "Páll Óskar Hjálmtýsson".
  • Providing English translations of the following album titles:
    • Stuð (1993).
    • Milljón á mann (1994).
    • Seif (1996).
    • Allur pakkinn (1999).
    • Þetta er nú meiri vitleysan (2001).
  • Ensuring that there are no missing diacritics in Icelandic words.

Thanks! — Cheers, JackLee talk contribs count Updated 13:44, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

Stuð is not easily translated. It means something like "groove" but not Quite. Milljón á mann means "A million for each". Allur pakkinn means "everything" but something like "The Whole Shebang" would capture it better. Þetta er nú meiri vitleysan means "This is completly foolish".Óli Gneisti (talk) 18:17, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for that! Are you able to help with the translations of the following, which are also stated in the article?

  • Seif.
  • "Betra Lif".
  • "Er þetta ást?".
  • "Sama hvar þú ert".

Also, how does one pronounce "Páll Óskar Hjálmtýsson"? — Cheers, Truth's Out There talk 07:35, 10 August 2008 (UTC), updated on 16:23, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

Sorting of article[edit]

Hi, 86.168.7.98, you've added "{{DEFAULTSORT:Oscar, Paul}}" to the article "Paul Oscar" twice, but I've reverted this edit because Icelandic people are conventionally sorted according to their first names. See "Icelandic name" and "Wikipedia:Manual of Style (Iceland-related articles)" for more information. This is because most Icelandic people do not have surnames, and in this case "Oscar" is not a surname but one of the subject's first names. If you would like to discuss this matter further, please do so here on the article's talk page. Thanks. — Cheers, JackLee talk 19:05, 20 May 2008 (UTC)
