Fair use rationale for Image:Ep36 05.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Ep36 05.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

The career section of the article fails to even mention he role on Entourage, for which I think she is best known. I don't have the time to update it right now, so if someone wants to be bold, please feel free. Otherwise I'll try to get to it eventually. (Morethan3words | talk) 15:27, 7 January 2010 (UTC)


Someone should change the use of colorful language in the first paragraph..... that was quick —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:57, 28 June 2010 (UTC)

"IPA" transcription of her name[edit]

I've largely made my peace with how unprofessionally, to say the least, the International Phonetic Alphabet in used on Wikipedia, but "/ɨˈmænjuːl ˈʃriːki/" still leaves a lot to be desired. First, the slashes ("/") are used for phonemic, not phonetic, representations -- that is, representations of phonological targets rather than the sounds themselves as they are realized in speech. Second, and most importantly, setting aside the manifold issues regarding that first vowel in her first name (the small stroked i, or [ɨ] is NOT a phoneme in English and doesn't occur in English nearly as often as it appears in transcriptions of names and words on Wikipedia), the transcription of her first name looks to me like the pronunciation of the masculine form of her name ("Emmanuel/Emanuel/etc."). Perhaps the use of the long-vowel symbol, or the triangular colon as it's sometimes called (ː), is meant here to fill the need for a second vowel sound after the high back rounded [u], but that's not what it does; it simply means that the high back rounded vowel is sustained for two morae, which doesn't happen phonemically in English, and I dare say that it doesn't happen in the phonetic realization of the name "Emmanuelle". I'd suggest removing the triangular colon and replacing it with a schwa or even an open e (or [ɛ]) with perhaps a secondary stress marker between the two vowels (although depending on how she pronounces her own name, one might want to reverse the stress markers). I'd also replace the small stroked i with a barred i or some such vowel. I'd do this myself, but Wikipedia seems to have very peculiar standards for the use of the IPA (which makes no sense, because of there's a way to use the IPA for English and another way for, say, Japanese, or whatever, then what purpose does the IPA serve?), and so knowing my luck, it'd probably just be reverted to the way it is right now. So, I'll save that for someone more familiar with Wiki's linguistic quirks. Balarick (talk) 09:42, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Oh, and the first vowel in her last name is not a full mora longer than the second vowel, and so the triangular colon should be removed as well. The stress marker at the start of the first syllable is more than adequate to indicate that the length of the first vowel is slightly greater than the second (but not by much and, again, not by a full mora).

I added her birthdate before noticing in the history that it's been a bit of a controversy. I added two sources including her own Instagram account (since she just had her 40th), so hopefully it will stick. It is unfortunate that Google returns the wrong date.
