Article with name[edit]

It seems to me that Daijirin is a name, like Shotokutaishi or Doraemon, and it is therefore odd to use an English article with it. In general we do not use articles with English names, except where this forms a descriptive noun phrase in English -- such as "The Shorter Oxford". So I am about to remove all definite articles from the titles (including the forerunner dictionaries). Imaginatorium (talk) 12:07, 5 January 2015 (UTC)

Including the definite article before dictionary names is standard usage (for instance, see Dictionary#History). Keahapana (talk) 19:04, 5 January 2015 (UTC)
