Ladies and Gentleman please do not be obsessed over "Constantinople" because such a thing does not exist.The name o the city is Istanbul and it was Istanbul at the time this battle was fought so i am removing the name "Constantinople".
In English, the city was still referred to as "Constantinople" until the early 1920s, and this is an encyclopaedia in English. You wouldn't refer to Moscow as "Moskva" or Cologne as "Koln".
And at the risk of being pedantic, I have seen it argued that entymologically conSTANtinople and iSTAMbul are actually the same name - it was named after the Emperor Constantine, and Istanbul is the Turkish version of the name. However this theory doesn't seem to be supported by the Istanbul page on here, although said page does still reckon "Istanbul" is a corruption of a Greek name. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 13:53, 14 September 2007 (UTC)
- At the risk of being pedantic myself, may I say there is no such word as "entymologically". There is etymologically, which relates to the study of word derivations, and there is also entomologically, which relates to the study of insects. Your word has a foot in both camps, but means neither thing. Cheers. -- Jack of Oz ... speak! ... 04:32, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
Born in Corfu
... which was using the Julian calendar. Are we showing the date after conversion to Gregorian, or is it in Julian, as it would have appeared on his official birth record? -- Jack of Oz [your turn] 12:34, 10 September 2011 (UTC)
Just one mention of Gallipoli? And now mention of his incompetence as commander at that battle? A few words in the intro are not enough. It is clear a few Revisionist Brits have hijacked this article. Eurocentric anyone?22.214.171.124 (talk) 00:46, 19 December 2011 (UTC)
