Talk:Court of Common Pleas (England)/GA1
Why is the beginning of the first quote a lowercase b? And should there not be a full stop at the end?
- "The creation of the court was undoubtedly designed..." Says who? Does anyone doubt it? Or is it a fact?
- Refs 3-6 are based around that. Says who would therefore be Sayles, Plucknett, Holdsworth and Kiralfy. Well, 5 and 6 are for the remaining sentence, but still.Ironholds (talk) 23:00, 23 October 2008 (UTC)
- "by assigning all common pleas..." Why is common italicized?
- To highlight the assignment of common pleas rather than royal pleas
- Is there any way you could split those references up? Having four together looks kind of ugly.
- Why is king sometimes capitalized, sometimes not?
- Why is Coram Rege sometimes italicized, sometimes not?
*"it had a fairly common presence in the Bench at Westminster..." Would that be Westminster Palace, or the place? A link would be good.
- "intent of the Common Pleas to following the King..." Shouldn't that be "follow"?
- "In Magna Carta (1215), it was provided that..." It was provided? Also, should it not be the Magna Carta?
- "arguably to a greater extent..." Who argues it?
*The last paragraph of the history section has two really long sentences. Please rewrite them. *Please split the history section up. It's really long compared to the other sections.
- Done. Why did this have to come up now, I was on a wiki-break and everything. Shame on me for writing articles :P. Ironholds (talk) 23:00, 23 October 2008 (UTC)
- Who is Coke?
- "Exchequer of pleas" pleas looks like it should be capitalized, not sure though.
- "By the write of Pone..." Forgive me, but what the heck does that mean? :P
- What is a "puisne justice"? I had to look it up - it's not really a common everyday phrase.
- "An interesting position was that of..." If it's not interesting, it wouldn't be there.
- "Despite acting as gaoler to the Exchequer of Pleas, Court of Chancery and Star Chamber as part of his duties the Warden was considered an officer of the Court of Common Pleas." Needs a comma. Also that "paragraph" should be merged in with another.
- "who was officially the Chief Justices own clerk..." Needs an apostrophe somewhere.
- The long list in the third paragraph needs a rewrite. Please also link to uncommon terms (what the heck is a "Essoin" or "Exigenter"?) This also applies to throughout the entire article generally. There's a lot of Latin terms, that you link once, but by the time we come across them again, we've forgotten what on earth they mean.
- Fourth paragraph: please link to place names that haven't been already.
- References: please make them all consistent. Some italicize p., some don't. This applies to the whole article, of course.
