Hi Dusty relic
A pleasure to be in touch and thanks for your interest in this subject. Unlike you, I don't claim expertise in every zone of life from prostitution (only in theory, I am sure) to Crimean Gothic. But I am interested in your observation that English dialects have different practices on singular and plural. What might be some, say between Scots and Scouse? There are some differences in tenses, eg North/South between "was" and "has been," but I am unaware of any in singular/plural practice.
Anyway, to bring in some serious authority on my side here, it was Jesus who said that the sabbath was made for man, not man for the sabbath.
On the same principle, we have here a group of Wikipedia entries in the general field of university ranking, where the 2011 results have now been published and in addition, the field has been enriched by new rankings for Latin America and for specific subjects.
It simply cannot be right that our readers have to get by with old and in many places wrong information on all this change, because of some problem about "is" and "are." The whole wiki and Wikipedia ethos is far less limiting than this.
Here's the deal: unroll the rollback and let me know via "Talk". I shall spend a few hours tomorrow making sure all the affected entries are consistent throughout. I am a professional author, journalist and editor and this sort of task is utterly routine for me. OK?
All best wishes
Hi, Royal Iris. Thank you for your fast response.
The dialectal difference I was referring is specifically for groups such as companies. In Standard British English, one could say "IBM have released a new operating system" whereas in American English it is more common to hear "IBM has released a new operating system". I was assuming that your use of the plural when you changed "it ranks" to "they rank" was because of that. However, I have just read the whole article (instead of just your changes) and feel that the plural is more correct and the entire article should be recast to use the plural (so as to agree with "Rankings"). If you do not have time to do that then drop me a note and I will do it.
The important thing though is references. When adding the information about the latest surveys we need to also add references and perhaps recheck old ones.
Another thing I am not very good at is replying to "Talk," there must be a simpler way than this. I am glad to do this and will complete it by Thursday - I actually have to leave the house for a while! I shall look at references in general but am happy to look at any specific gaps you might identify.
In my journalistic life I have always regarded organisations as singular (although you seem to think I am slipping). I use Rankings as a plural because it implies more than one Ranking!
Thanks again for your help with this.
Best to in all circumstances and all occasions even if you think you can't work your way around it not split that infinitive
Glad you enjoyed it!
I have to admit that I have a much higher standard for clarity in language than most might feel is required--I've even taken the editors of Encyclopædia Britannica to task for unclear writing!
I'm finishing up an English Grammar I'm writing, and have a section that says explicitly not to split infinitives. However, it also goes fairly in-depth into explaining why. I'll paraphrase some here, if you have the stamina—and NSAID—to plow through it...
As the three "founding documents" of ACE have minimal SI's, or avoid all splits entirely — Shakespeare had only two in his entire corpus [one required by rhyme, the other most likely a printer's error], the KJV  and the Book of Common Prayer [1559/1662] have none — it's obvious that the writers of the best of the founding literature found no reason even to consider SI's. After having been impossible in Anglo-Saxon, SI's are found sometimes in Middle English, but vanished during the Renaissance, just to reappear during the crass materialism of the Industrial Revolution. However, I don't rest my argument on precedence, but on the logical structure of the language itself, even going a bit into psycho-linguistics.
One of the points I bring up is that split infinitives will ruin parallel phrasing, particulary when the splitter applies only to the first of the infinitives, and the second is elided. "To not be late but punctual..." actually scans as "to not be late but [to not be] punctual" (not is used as part of the first infinitive), whereas "not to be late, but punctual" scans as "not to be late but [to be] punctual" (not merely modifies the first infinitive). [My Anglo-Saxon, English, German, Latin, Greek and Sanskrit (and C && C++) backgrounds have carried a lot of scanning practice... (he sighs wearily...)]
This demonstrates that the SI problem goes beyond infinitives. It is actually a problem, not with infinitives per se, but with adverb placement, in which the modern trend toward language remarkable for its blandness, equivocation, inattention, and unthinking verbal spew ("And I was so like...") has taken hold.
Adverbs (unless they are members of the class of limiters or the negation adverb: only, just, often, etc., plus not) follow the verbs, verbals or phrases to which they apply: by speaking clearly [gerund], speaking clearly [present participle], having spoken clearly [perfect participle], to speak clearly [present infinitive], to have spoken clearly [perfect infinitive]. (N.b., The past participle is not a verbal, but is part of the main verb, part of the verbal, or is an adjective; it follows the rules of order particular to those usages.) In an analytic language like English, word order is everything.
The importance of adverb placement is also demonstrated by the difference between "he spoke clearly" and "he clearly spoke". The second one sounds incomplete because the limiting function of "clearly" in that phrase (versus the attributive usage in the first) implies that there's a comparison, or a defining (or argumentative) phrase coming in order to complete the predicate: "He spoke clearly about the Highland Clearances." [i.e., He spoke well. (attributive adverb)] vs "He clearly spoke about the Highland Clearances[, not about the Jacobite Rebellions]." or "He clearly spoke about the Highland Clearances[, but never wrote about them]" [In these latter sentences, clearly is a limiting adverb and could be replaced with obviously, only, just, etc., or could be moved to the front of the sentence without changing its basic meaning. The adverb in the attributive usage cannot be moved without changing the sentence's meaning.]
It is the word in the position of emphasis that is contrasted with other possible words in the same class. The house was too quickly painted contrasts with The house was too quickly sold, too quickly built, too quickly bulldozed. Whereas The house was painted too quickly contrasts with The house was painted too slowly, too thinly, too sloppily, etc. The same conditions hold with infinitives; splitting an infinitive merely confuses the situation: He wanted the house to be painted quickly [attributive adverb] versus He wanted the house to be quickly painted [limiting adverb] versus He wanted the house to quickly be painted [split infinitive: misplaced limiting adverb]. A split infinitive has the adverb in the position reserved for limiting adverbs used with non-infinitive verb forms--it cannot be attributive in that position.
Hiding the adverb within the gut of the infinitive weakens both the adverb and the infinitive: To boldy go vs To go boldly. Boldly modifies to go, not just go, so keeping the infinitive as a unit strengthens it. Moving the adverb into its proper place (after the modified) puts it in a place of prominence and emphasis, which is, in fact, the only rationale for using attributive adverbs in the first place!
The problem with infinitives is also that the initial "to" can be heard either as "to" or "too". This forces the mind of the listener (or reader) to have to push that word onto the stack and wait until the usage of the next word (or words) can be parsed out before popping the stack to complete the meaning and proceed. Check To boldy go against Too boldly gone [is too rashly done]. If the next word is the verb, the parsing/processing is quickly, cleanly complete; if it isn't, deeper, slower parsing must be pursued.
This is why a non-split infinitive will always be clearer than a split one: if splitting appears necessary or unavoidable, the phrasing is already at fault. Modern English uses too many infinitives as it is; gerunds and relative clauses can be used to much greater advantage than they are used currently.
So use your adverbs wisely: to speak clearly, to phrase bravely, to grab fiercely by the nape of the 'l' and the foot of the 'y' — to make your audience listen attentively, and to for more yearn!

Changes to Portuguese
Care to explain this reversion of my edit? The content you (re)added still is not consistent with the cites in this section, as I stated in my edit-summary, nor is the analysis supported by a cite itself. DMacks (talk) 00:05, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
As an Odinist for many years, I have no interest in harming the Germanic neopaganism page, but I was trying to make it clearer and more precise. Please feel free to restore material that you believe to be of value. I thought, for example, that using an unpublished pdf file from this site violated wiki policy, so I deleted it. Was I wrong? --ThorLives (talk) 22:14, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
Many of the sources that I removed appear elsewhere in the article--in the Heathen section.
My goal was not to remove the sources, but I was trying to tighten up the front material so that a casual reader, seeking information on the subject, would not be "put off." Feel free to restore any sources that you feel were removed in error.
New Page Triage engagement strategy released
I'm dropping you a note because you filled out the New Page Patrol survey, and indicated you'd be interested in being contacted about follow-up work. This is to notify you that we've finally released both the initial documentation about the project and also the engagement strategy, which sets out how we plan to work with the community on this. Please give both a read, and leave any comments or suggestions you have on the talkpage, on my talkpage, or in my inbox - okeyeswikimedia.org.
Hi, the word SEASON is NOT used when referring to articles about a British TV show. Vandalism is not okay on wiki, so I would appreciate it if you refrained from vandalising British pages or my talk page. You can always use the sand box feature if you want to mess around... Mythical Curse (talk) 08:32, 24 May 2012 (UTC).
Although Wikipedia favors no national variety of English, within a given article the conventions of one particular variety should be followed consistently. The exceptions are:
Hi I did provide sources to those things I wrote. I don't think that stuff should just be taken out completely its important information, maybe the sources can be sorted out but I did provide sources to them, they were not unsourced, I would never ever vandalize wikipedia I am not a troll. --Zolfianyarvelling (talk) 17:08, 20 July 2012 (UTC)
Sorry I just got your message saw what the problem was that the sources might not be seen as reliable but those are reliable sources that is not original research one is a reputable website that has articles on all celebrities charitable contributions called Look to the stars, I added another one from the independent too which is as reliable a source as anything else on the page. --Zolfianyarvelling (talk) 17:10, 20 July 2012 (UTC)
Hi Dusty relic that is the problem actually I find it difficult to provide a link to the text. In all cases I only provided links to the website like the independent article I only provided a link to an the site not the article. I think I need to learn how to post links to the URL of specific pages. I did get a link to two of the specific pages however one to the list of charities and the other to her pose for easy living magazine. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Zolfianyarvelling (talk • contribs) 20:51, 20 July 2012 (UTC)

Hi! You said that one shouldn't disambiguate every typo- But when I see a professional company making a misspelling (Go to this page and scroll to the bottom and you see "Moscow city, novoslobodckaja street 4 Shopping centre Friendship in Moscow 3flour") then you find the misspelling is plausible and therefore disambiguation becomes justified. Hainan Airlines is a large Chinese airline, and if they make that mistake, others will too.
Usually if a company or a professional organization makes a typo like that, then it's a sign Wikipedia needs to cover the typo.
Whole wheat flour
Here is what I'm saying: In the article "Whole-wheat_flour" there is a sentence in "Overview":
"The word "whole" refers to the fact that all of the grain (bran, germ, and endosperm) is used ...".
I think that many people do not know exactly what 'bran, germ, and endosperm' are, so I think the addition of one little word, "hull" will make it more understandable.
Now, as far as accuracy and citability, both Mirriam-Webster http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/hull, and Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bran, define hull and bran as: "outer covering of a seed" and "outer layer of cerials", respectively. So, in the interest of understanability for non-biologists, I think adding one, demonstrably correct word would improve the article. Some people like farmers might understand 'hull' better than 'bran'. I'm not sure why you are so resistant to this slight clarification. Do you think it is incorrect? I researched it, above are just two sources. 188.8.131.52 (talk) 18:49, 4 September 2012 (UTC)
Just wondering if you made a complaint about this threat at ANI or something? If you didn't, I will.

==> You recently made this edit to T-V distinction. I did not roll these changes back but they are unsourced and need to be referenced. Could you add references to this? Thanks, Dusty Dusty (Dusty relic)|Talk to me|Please help! 21:19, 13 September 2012
I think I have a problem here. I'm a native speaker of Italian and the statements I've made are accurate, in that they reflect common usage in my native culture. But I'm not a language sociologist so I can't quote a source. The address forms are just something very basic in everyday life—they're just as commonplace as identifying New York as "The Big Apple" (in fact, even more commonplace than that). As an example of the difficulty, then, please consider if you could easily provide a source for the statement "New York is sometimes called 'The Big Apple'"?
If one were to say the piece of information comes from "original research", which is anathema, that would be, well, ridiculous: there's no need to do any research to know that, if you live in the involved culture. Research is made, er, of sterner stuff, to (mis)quote old Willie Shakespeare's Mark Anthony. I can only hope some language sociologist will step in and quote some article on the subject (there may not be any). Erasing the information, which is relevant to the article's content and factually correct, would, in my opinion, be a wrong move.
I shall provide an analogon. At the Wikipedia article for "breakfast" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Breakfast), you can read the following:
" For the Hausa of northern Nigeria, a typical breakfast consists of kosai (cakes made from ground beans which are then fried) or funkaso (wheat flour soaked for a day then fried and served with sugar). Both of these cakes can be served with porridge and sugar known as koko. For the south western Yoruba people (Ilé Yorùbá) one of the most common breakfasts is Ògì— a porridge made from corn, usually served with evaporated milk. Ògì is eaten with Acarajé (akara) or Moi moi."
Footnote #8 is misleading: it only refers to Ògì, not to the Yoruba breakfast, and the Hausa breakfast just above is completely unsourced. In due course, it will probably be referenced. Right now, it isn't.
I understand the need to source what is entered and I agree with the policy. But this is a Wiki, so while I can't provide a satisfactory reference, I can hope somebody else but me comes up with a quote for the address forms in Italian—or even with a book on the subject.
That will likely never happen if any hint at them regularly disappears an hour or so after being inserted.
Another example: the article for "Sir" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sir). The incipit goes:
"Sir is an honorific address used as a courtesy title to address a man without using his given or family name in many English speaking cultures. It is often used in formal correspondence (Dear Sir, Right Reverend Sir).
The term is often reserved for use only towards one of superior rank or status, such as an educator or commanding officer, an elder (especially by a minor), or as a form of address from a merchant to a customer.
Equivalent terms of address are "ma'am" or "madam" in most cases, or in the case of a very young woman, girl, or unmarried woman who prefers to be addressed as such, "miss". The equivalent term for a knighted woman is Dame, or "Lady" for the wife of a knight."
Too due list
Hi, I hope you don't mind me asking, but is "too due list" (for "to do list") an example of playful language or an eggcorn? I'm asking because I like collecting the latter. garik (talk) 12:56, 14 September 2012 (UTC)

Hello, Dusty relic. In this edit, you stated that you reverted me because "One edit is factually inaccurate and the other is needlessly wordy."
I restored my edits because that statement is incorrect. I reverted an IP who'd added "Flexitarianism whatever works for ya." as part of the main list of vegetarian diets. Not only is "whatever works for ya" unencyclopedic, "flexitarianism" is covered by semi-vegetarianism (it even redirects there) and it is specifically mentioned a little lower in the section the IP added it to. What was factually incorrect was the IP adding "flexitarianism" as a main vegetarian diet, when it is actually semi-vegetarianism and is highly contested as vegetarianism.
And I made this edit because pescetarianism is not always "fish and some other forms of seafood"; most of the time...fish is the only type of seafood included. Thus, I added "or." I can only see my adding "or" as inaccurate in cases where a person defines fish to mean any sea creature. I also made that edit, adding "chicken or" for pollotarianism because pollotarianism does not always include any type of poultry; it is usually defined as a person who includes the consumption of chicken in their primarily plant-based diet.

Scanian accent of Swedish language
Hi ! User Peter Isosalo rejected my first edit due to lack opf references. Now I did both rewright evrything and added English sources - and I have started discussion at both talk page of article "Swedish language" and at User Peter Isosaldo's page. Isn't it more fair that he comments my rewrighting, and discuss what he might think is wrong. I do not seek editorial wars. But It does not stand to reason to under "Immigrant's Swedish" mention Scanian (Malmö, Rosengård), while I may not present the truth from a Scanian point of view.

Hello Dusty -- by definition, a probiotic must be a live bacterial strain which, as an example in food, would be contained refrigerated and sealed from air (oxygen) like a container of yogurt. I think it's misleading to say sauerkraut is a "probiotic" when it is usually contained without refrigeration or seal. True, it's fermented, but this doesn't guarantee live bacteria when cooked and served in the open. For this reason, I question both its verifiability and relevance for the probiotics article.--Zefr (talk) 18:16, 18 April 2013 (UTC)

Whey protein - rennet - kosher and lacto-vegetarianism -?????
Hello, would you please explain what it is about the info I added to this article that you think needs a citation. does it not already say in the article that whey is derived from the cheese making process using rennet this is a common fact referenced in other WP articles as well and is NOT OR. There is also an article on Kosher diet etc (NO meat + MILK products). THIS cannot be considered OR, I believe, it is too factual.

Creating an account and IP edits
Hi. The new user who "corrected" the spelling of Hochdeitsch in the Amish article was apparently using the new VisualEditor. HTML comments in an article's source code (such as the note telling people that "Hochdeitsch" is correct and should not be changed to "Hochdeutsch") apparently do not show up when using VisualEditor to edit a page. Now, I know some people have made this same edit previously (before VisualEditor came into being) — and they either refused to take seriously, or more likely failed to notice, the HTML comment telling them not to do so — but given the way VisualEditor works, this latest offender most likely didn't see the posted warning. I'm conflicted as to whether this should be chalked up as a misfeature of the new VisualEditor, or whether it means that we just can't use HTML comments and expect people to notice them anymore. — Richwales (no relation to Jimbo) 01:00, 26 July 2013 (UTC)
Hello, Dusty relic. Happy Friday to you. What gives? Regarding your edit summary, I didn't ask for the general definition of a reliable source. What I asked was why exactly is it (i.e., this source) an unreliable source (i.e., for supporting the content it's footnoting here). The author of the book appears to be a reputable academic with perfectly satisfactory credentials and multiple publications to his credit. In your summary, you mention as an example a conflict of interest (which technically doesn't make a source unreliable but is certainly of concern). Are you alleging that happened here? The editor who added the link in the first place appears unconnected with the book's author, as far as I can tell, so I'm not clear what you're talking about. Are we being spammed with this link in other articles or something? I don't get it. Rivertorch (talk) 17:08, 16 August 2013 (UTC)
