"Muslim population was repressed by Stalin". True, but is it not equally true for the entire Soviet population? What sources are that muslim population was repressed more than christian population? Else, this sentence is just a covert POV-pushing.--MariusM 20:18, 4 May 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Map not suitable[edit]

It might be that "grey" Adjara is not precisely as white as the rest of Giorgia, but a human eye does hardly see that. Is there any better map? --KnightMove (talk) 15:00, 14 January 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

more should be considered, before Muslim came, they were all christians. And it was the repression conducted by Muslim forced them to became Muslim. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:32, 16 January 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

November 2008 by-election?[edit]

Should there be some mention in this article of the parliamentary by-election held on November 3? Richwales (talk) 19:06, 17 November 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Adjara or Ajaria[edit]

Both versions appear in the text. Are these different entities, or is the latter just a spelling error? -- JackofOz (talk) 03:32, 12 July 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Just different transliterations of the Georgian აჭარა. Obviously needs to be standardized.--KoberTalk 03:45, 12 July 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Please note that "Ajara" or "Adjaria" both are Russian spelling of this word. In Georgian it spells as "Achara". Why not change the name of article to "Achara"? LUGALzu (talk) 22:02, 7 April 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Adjar(i)a and Аджария[edit]

Considering history and geography, Russian and Turkish names (spellings) for Adjar(i)a are also relevant. Example: Ireland. -- Yours truly, Anonymous —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:15, 19 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

By your logic, then, we should add Mongol names to the Russian toponyms.--KoberTalk 15:30, 19 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
You are stretching too far. It may not be in the article but I see no reason why it MUST NOT be in the article. Actually, I don't like the fact the article is shepherded by a person with a political agenda. If you'd wish, lets say Аджария is there to explain the Adjaria/Adjara spelling difference. Is it reasonable? (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 15:40, 21 August 2009 (UTC).Reply[reply]
You should check the Wikipedia norms to understand why I have removed the Russian version. I give little care whether you like my involvement with this article or not. Russian is neither an official nor a widely used language in Adjara. If you think it still merits inclusion to make the translit differences clear, then give a try to the Etymology section.--KoberTalk 04:34, 22 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Could you please elaborate on the unnamed norms you are referring to? Also, please explain how the article on Ireland escaped those norms. As far as I can see Russians is the most significant ethnical minority in Adjar(i)a (and seemingly I start to understand why everyone and his dog wants to separate from Georgia.) (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 09:42, 22 August 2009 (UTC).Reply[reply]
Please be so kind to keep your conclusions to yourself. Why do you think Ireland is a model article? Russians don't comprise even 2% of Adjara's population. Their language is neither official nor widely spoken in that region. --KoberTalk 18:47, 22 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Don't comprise 2%? They do. At least, according to the article. Another nice example: Kashmir. Be tolerant. (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 06:32, 25 August 2009 (UTC).Reply[reply]

Can anyone add the transliteration of the name Adjara per the Manual of Style? It looks to me that it is "Ach'ara", but I am not entirely certain. Skinsmoke (talk) 08:09, 16 March 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sentence unclear to me[edit]

The current article contains the sentence:

"It became part of the Lazica before being incorporated into the Kingdom of Abkhazia in the 8th century AD, the latter led unification of Georgian monarchy in the 11th century."

Why is "Lazica" preceded by an article ("the")?

The last clause in the sentence could be interpreted in at least three different ways:

  • as an apposition to "the Kingdom of Abkhazia in the 8th century AD", so the unification would be the same thing as the kingdom;
  • as an addition saying that the "Kingdom of Abkhazia" led (i.e. took the initiative in) the unification;
  • as an addition saying that the "Kingdom of Abkhazia" led to the unfication.

Possibly because of grammatical issues, I cannot make out what exactly is meant. It would help me to know the meaning, and I might be able to suggest an edit once I know. Who can tell me?Redav (talk) 14:51, 3 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
