Talk:Language of the birds

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

at present hacked together from online sources. Needs better references. dab () 10:16, 19 July 2005 (UTC)

In the movie Librarian: Quest for the Spear of Destiny, the language of the birds was the language spoken by all people before god changed all thier languages after man attempted to build the tower of babel. Where does this reference spring from and should ti be included?

A little bird told me[edit]

At one time, the expression "a little bird told me" was popular in American English, usually used to refer to a situation involving an unnamed source. I'm curious if this originated from "language of the birds" folk stories. —Viriditas | Talk 01:27, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

Sources[edit]

How much of this is real, and how much is occultists grasping at straws? For instance, in the section on Sufism, it seems like the author is trying to infer that because there is a book of poems "the conference of birds" there is also a "language of the birds" in Sufism. If there IS a language of the birds in Sufism, it would be helpful to include this in the article. If there is not, and the only connection is the name of the poems, this section should be removed.

Cites[edit]

I saw a Citation Needed tag, and I hunted down a couple sources for the material. Unfortunately, this article doesn't use cite templates, or have particularly good or consistent inline cites besides, and trying to figure out how to do it nicely by hand made my head hurt. So I just stuck a reflist in the References section and called it a day. I think that as long as this article is in a nebulous state, the inline cites, as they are added/cleaned up, should be cite templates. Anyone feel passionately about that? --Pompous stranger (talk) 00:38, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Recursive links??[edit]

Hey guys - the "green language" link at the top is a recursive link to the very page it talks about! Not good - this should be either removed or retargetted to an actual other page. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 207.22.18.83 (talk) 04:15, 27 July 2010 (UTC)

Good note. I fixed it by making a link to Language of the birds#Alchemy, which explains why it is called "green language", making the link recursive with a stop condition, which is a simple way to avoid infinite recursions. Rursus dixit. (mbork3!) 20:05, 10 January 2011 (UTC)
