Interwiki[edit]

There is some problem:
Davos: en:Davos gives new interwiki zh:达沃斯
NOTE: zh:达沃斯 does not exist

I guess you have some problem with unicode. The chinese page is about the same Davos as in the english page. Momet (talk) 06:17, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

Demographics and the languages[edit]

Noone speaks Serbo-Croatian language. This language was never spoken by noone with exception of some communist leaders that created this articifial language in 1961 and later promoted the name of this language it in written media across the globe. Even this artificial language seized its existance in 1990. Now it is, according to the article, official in Switzerland. Croats speak Croatian language and Serbs Serbian language. I know that it is much more simple from the Swiss perspective to name it one language, but try not being so cheap when there is such an important issue such as national language on the table. Austrians did the same during the existance of Austria-Hungary and this brought only trouble and war later in the history.Hammer of Habsburg (talk) 22:19, 19 March 2010 (UTC) Where did you learn to type?

Dubious claims about English pronunciaton[edit]

The article claims without sources that "Davos" is usually pronounced /'dɑːvɒs/. This contradicts my own experience, which is that it is usually /'dɑːvoʊs/ in the US and /'dævɒs/ in British English. See. e.g. [1] for the US pronounciation and [2] for the British. My Longman Pronunciation Dictionary gives both forms with second-syllable stress, which seems obsolete in English today.

Davos[edit]

Harry Clarke was president of the Irish society of Davos and was one of Ireland´s most important artist´s of the 20th Century. There is a project in place to secure placement of a commemorative plaque to Clarke in the town. Considerable correspondence, photographs etc. exist from Clarke´s time here. Please do not undo the addition. The alphabetical ordering was an error. Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 77.58.11.198 (talk) 01:24, 16 September 2016 (UTC)

Moved from my talk page -- ZH8000 (talk) 01:28, 16 September 2016 (UTC)

There were probably a hundred of people who where "president" of any club and lived for many more years in Davos. This list should not list every possible visitor, but only notable ones with a strong relation to Davos. thks. -- ZH8000 (talk) 01:29, 16 September 2016 (UTC)
