This new page, which will serve the purpose of distinguishing honorific titles from honorifics systems in linguistics, is under construction and will be undergoing major changes over the next 48 hours. Rhiannonstone (talk) 05:55, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

Please don't delete just yet! I originally intended to create this in my userspace before moving it over to the main site and goofed, but this article is notable and will be filled with content over the next 24-48 hours. The current Honorifics article confuses honorific titles with systems of honorifics in linguistics, and the difference between the two is significant enough to warrant two separate articles.

Under the heading Javanese is the following phrase:

Speech levels, although not as developed or as complex as honorific speech found in Javanese, are but one of a complex and nuanced aspect of Javanese etiquette . . . .

I believe "Javanese" in this phrase is a typo for "Japanese," the previous category under discussion to which Javanese is being compared. But I'm not certain, so I hesitate to make a change.

Would the author of this piece please investigate this and make changes as appropriate?
