/ɜ/ and /ɛ̈/[edit]

Does the symbols /ɜ/ and /ɛ̈/ pronounce as the same way ? (talk) 20:34, 19 June 2013 (UTC)

Not usually. The centering diacritic of [ɛ̈] can indicate a range of difference from the cardinal point of [ɛ]. Because there already is a symbol for [ɜ], it's safe to assume that a given linguist's use of [ɛ̈] in a source doesn't mean the same thing as [ɜ], but the decision to choose one or another to represent a given vowel is often a judgment call. — Ƶ§œš¹ [ãːɱ ˈfɹ̠ˤʷɪ̃ə̃nlɪ] 18:56, 22 June 2013 (UTC)


Well wishes for your graduate studies. I visited your talk page because Bhaskarbhagawati is, IMO, vandalizing the Etymology of Assam page, and thought you might be able to help. Chaipau (talk) 18:38, 1 July 2013 (UTC)

I've reverted his edits. You should put something in the administrator's noticeboard, focusing on his refusal to discuss the matter. There's no way that blanking sections with no talk page discussion is anything but a behavior issue. It may not be vandalism (who knows what's in BB's heart), but it is part of a disruptive pattern. — Ƶ§œš¹ [ãːɱ ˈfɹ̠ˤʷɪ̃ə̃nlɪ] 19:22, 1 July 2013 (UTC)

Merge discussion for Pangender [edit]

Information.svg An article that you have been involved in editing, Pangender , has been proposed for a merge with another article. If you are interested in the merge discussion, please participate by going here, and adding your comments on the discussion page. Thank you. April Arcus (talk) 07:26, 28 August 2013 (UTC)

Request for input[edit]

I have been engaged in a dispute at Luís Alves de Lima e Silva, Duke of Caxias for some time now that could be of relevance to the many pronunciations of non-English names throughout WP. It's a former featured article, and one of the contributors who got it to FA status objects to the pronunciation of the name Caxias being indicated, for a rotating set of reasons. Any input there would be appreciated, as we don't seem to be resolving it ourselves and hardly anyone else is watching the page. — ˈzɪzɨvə (talk) 00:27, 25 October 2013 (UTC)

Hmong in Minneapolis[edit]

Hi! You might be interested in what I started: History of the Hmong in Minneapolis–Saint Paul. I also created a navigation template that links between this and Merced. WhisperToMe (talk) 06:34, 18 January 2014 (UTC)

Seems like a good start. You might want the two articles to have similar layouts. It also seems a little strange to have a "history" section in an article about history. — Ƶ§œš¹ [ãːɱ ˈfɹ̠ˤʷɪ̃ə̃nlɪ] 14:31, 18 January 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! I'll get around to switching the layouts upon finding more info. I only use the "History of" title as a form of precedent from a series of articles started about Jewish populations in U.S. cities and counties. WhisperToMe (talk) 15:45, 18 January 2014 (UTC)
Started History of the Hmong in Fresno, California as well. WhisperToMe (talk) 22:51, 8 February 2014 (UTC)
I've been waiting for that one. Keep it going. — Ƶ§œš¹ [ãːɱ ˈfɹ̠ˤʷɪ̃ə̃nlɪ] 21:44, 9 February 2014 (UTC)

Here's another one: History of the Hmong Americans in Metro Detroit WhisperToMe (talk) 14:27, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

I wonder if there is enough to start a general overview of the Hmong in California. I have Hmong in Wisconsin and I also wonder if there will be enough on the Hmong in Wausau (it sounds like there was some antagonism in the town since it was all White before). The main thing impeding me is that Google News archives search is down, so it's much harder for me to find news articles about the Wausau Hmong, especially from the 1990s, but I can try to see what I can find WhisperToMe (talk) 13:45, 8 March 2014 (UTC)


I've seen your comments on Talk pages of some of the pages I've edited, so I dropped in on your User page to have a look around. Looks mighty homelike to me! In fact, I'm swiping a couple of Babel boxes from you, ipa and Cyrl-4: not 5, because while I'm thoroughly comfortable with Russian кириллица, I'm not very familiar with its use for other languages.

Maybe we'll e-chat when you get back from your Wikibreak. --Thnidu (talk) 04:47, 21 February 2014 (UTC)

You can feel free to drop me an email whenever you'd like. My wikibreak is to keep me from spending two hours each morning going through the changes on my watchlist and chiming in on talk page discussions. — Ƶ§œš¹ [ãːɱ ˈfɹ̠ˤʷɪ̃ə̃nlɪ] 13:59, 21 February 2014 (UTC)


Er, sorry for interrupting your work on your dissertation, but might I ask you to glance at the top and foot of Talk:African American Vernacular English and to chime in? Thanks! -- Hoary (talk) 03:36, 1 March 2014 (UTC)


Hello, this pronunciation is [pæʃ] or [pɐɪ̯ʃ] ? Fort123 (talk) 22:09, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

I'll feel free to give my opinion in AE's place if you don't mind. Definitely diphthongal to my ears. In fact, [pɐɪʃ] sounds like a reasonable transcription, [pæʃ] not at all. Of course, in North American English, /æ/ frequently develops into a diphthong ([ɛə] or the like, see æ-tensing), but that does not matter here. It is possible that the glide [ɪ] is an automatic insertion between [ɐ] ~ [æ] and [ʃ], so (depending on analysis) /pæ(ː)ʃ/ (or even /pɛ(ː)ʃ/) might be the underlying phonemic representation. Is the speaker from Québec? See Quebec French phonology#Diphthongization. --Florian Blaschke (talk) 21:00, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia articles on books[edit]

Hi! In order to make more public knowledge of controversies/deficiencies in some books I started User:WhisperToMe/Hmong: History of a People to show people documented history of a book that could easily be used by a Wikipedian as a source. By writing these articles Wikipedians will understand that they need to have caution when using sources.

I thought about doing this since User:Nposs raised issues about the book here: User_talk:Nposs#History_of_a_People_by_Quincy and Talk:Hmong_people#blue eyes, blonde hair WhisperToMe (talk) 05:19, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
