German–Turkish relationsGermany–Turkey relations — It should be renamed because most of the bilateral relations articles are named like X–Y relations. Turkish Flame 15:16, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

  • Support Turkish Flame 15:23, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
  • Support I agree with Turkish Flame. LibStar (talk) 15:19, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
  • Strong oppose, per WP:COMMONNAME. "Germany–Turkey relations" is simply not proper grammatical, idiomatic English. Fut.Perf. 07:34, 1 August 2009 (UTC)


Any additional comments:
  • Comment. "[M]ost of the bilateral relations articles are named like X–Y relations" – true, but not all. There are (a lot of) articles named either "Xian-Yian relations" (with demonyms), "X-Y relations" (with a hyphen) or "X – Y relations" (with spaces). Why not make a multimove request instead of going through the same arguments every time? Also, is there a rule somewhere that this is the only acceptable format?

    • To elaborate, a large majority of articles in Category:Bilateral relations of Turkey are in the format "Ruritanian–Turkish relations", like this one. Are you planning to move them all? If yes, why do it one by one? If not, why are we here? Jafeluv (talk) 21:26, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
      • I'll move all of them but this is a little bit controversial article. That's why I chose this way. --Turkish Flame 06:01, 31 July 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose, simply because there's no evidence of this usage being the only acceptable one (I don't think there's a guideline on the matter...?), and the current format is pretty widely used in Turkey-related articles. I'm all for making all X-Y relations articles consistent in naming, but discussing them one by one is exactly the way not to do it. Jafeluv (talk) 06:28, 31 July 2009 (UTC)
    • I'm striking my oppose because there is a guideline on the matter, devised by WikiProject International relations. It says that the noun form of the countries should be used, so the proposed title would be the correct one. However, I still strongly advise you not to suggest these moves one by one, because a) that would take forever and b) people grow tired of going through the same arguments over and over again. Either request a huge multimove at WP:RM or find a bold enough admin from the international relations project to move all the other articles after this one gets consensus. Jafeluv (talk) 22:36, 31 July 2009 (UTC)
      • The "guideline" is invalid. Last time this was discussed at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject International relations, there was no consensus either way; it doesn't make it a valid consensus just because somebody then went and put this new rule on the Wikiproject's main page. There is no single grammatical scheme applicable for all country pairs, because country names are in themselves a grammatically heterogeneous class in English. The attempt at imposing a uniform naming scheme on all these articles is fundamentally misguided, because it goes against the nature of English. Artificial uniformity is bad. In the present case, as in many others, the Adjective-Adjective compound is the only form found in natural English usage; other country pairs are different. Fut.Perf. 07:41, 1 August 2009 (UTC)
