Talk:Austria–Prussia rivalry

"German dualism" doesn't tend to be a term very common in English-language histories - I and a friend of mine have never heard of it stated as such, and Google is pretty patchy as well, with most hits being irrelevant or copies of the Wikipedia article. Not all, but not many seem to be uses of "German dualism" in English. Anyway, Austria-Prussia rivalry is just kind of a stand-in, and if someone else wants to propose a better target, that's fine.

"German dualism" is something an English person might say. "Austria–Prussia rivalry" not something anybody would ever say, unless there were a Prussian soccer team. "Austro-Prussian rivalry" is good English. (talk) 18:40, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
Except that nobody in English actually uses or says "German dualism?"
Austro-Prussian rivalry would be fine too, although it's a bit invented either way. Wikipedia seems to prefer just the countries in a lot of areas rather than the adjectives; e.g. China–United States relations rather than Sino-American relations. Still, if you have any references using Austro-Prussian, feel free to link 'em and we can move the page. SnowFire (talk) 18:53, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
"German dualism" is not particularly rare. I'd be interested in a single source that uses "Austria-Prussia rivalry"! (talk) 13:37, 20 May 2015 (UTC)


Meanwhile, why is there a picture of two statues in Japan as the page image? Brickie (talk) 12:28, 1 March 2011 (UTC)
