According to the South Yemeni pronounciation which was "offocial" in the timae of PRSY-PDRY the Arabic word "Republic" - "Jumhuriyyah" in Classic Arabic was prononced "Gumhuriyyah" - like as in Egyptian colloquial Arabic. The Arabic "ج" is "g" in Cairo and Aden, but "j" in Sana'a. MutargimMutargim (talk) 19:03, 16 December 2008 (UTC)
South Yemen should not be merged with History of Yemen as this article is more of a terminological explanation of South Yemen (semi-DAB) than a history article. Making South Yemen a redirect to the history article will not help the user elucidate what South Yemen is or where to go for the specific entities usually referred to as South Yemen. — AjaxSmack 03:01, 24 October 2006 (UTC)
I tend to agree. South Yemen makes a reasonable Wikipedia article in its own right. - Peyre —Preceding unsigned comment added by Peyre (talk • contribs) 00:05, 7 December 2007 (UTC)
Human rights in South Yemen were violated? And what about human rights in Saudi-Arabia, Jordan, Egypt and other pro-western Arab countries? Who cares about human rights there? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 00:37, 27 June 2008 (UTC)
That's a terrible attitude, definitely not suitable for a Wikipedian. I think it's important for us to find referenc-able sources regarding a lot of items on this page that has citation required. There should also be some information regarding North Yemen as well. It's funny how when one copy information from the CIA World Fact book, there are always huge portions of the article describing the "horrible state of affairs" in Communist countries, such as for South Yemen, but there's almost nothing regarding North Yemen, its counterpart.

According to some indications, such as the text in the bottom of image File:Coat of arms of South Yemen.jpg — which was also reproduced in the book Guide to the Flags of the World by Mauro Talocci (edited and revised by Whitney Smith, 1982 (ISBN 0-688-01141-1) — the name from 1967-1970 was actually جمهورية اليمن الجنوبية الشعبية jumhuriyat al-yaman al-janubiya al-sha`biya "The People's Republic of South Yemen", not "The People's Democratic Republic of Yemen"...
