Wording[edit]

I changed the initial wording: using "typically" is antiencyclopedic. It's Googlethink: 97% of searches were looking for X, so that's what we show. I do not really like the new wording ("Macron commonly refers to...") either: the fact is that in terms of frequency (right now), le president will surely be way ahead of anything else. Given the current order, putting the "real" macron below, would still leave it second in the list, and I suggest that would make the text less awkward. Is there a rule that a DAB must have "refers to"? If not, it would surely be neater just to have "Macron is the surname of the president..." or similar. Comments invited.

If you don't like "Macron commonly refers to", I've seen other articles that say "X most commonly refers to", "X most often refers to", or "X usually refers to". I would oppose moving Macron (diacritic) or Emmanuel Macron out of the lead section—they are both far more likely targets than any of the articles listed in the other sections. —Granger (talk · contribs) 19:55, 15 May 2017 (UTC)
