Suggestions for this article[edit]

Hello, I'm a student at the University of Oklahoma, and one of my assignments is to find an article that needs work on and suggest how it can be made better.

For this article, finding a portrait of Maria Adinghelli would be a way to improve it. Also, breaking the article into sections, (i.e. Early life, Works, Later life) would be a big help in organizing the information.

This article could use a strong lead. Usually it's good to start an article with a lead that informs the reader of why the subject is relevant. Past that, the paragraph on accomplishments is poorly worded. "Expert in mathematical physics, Ardinghelli's fame is mainly due to the translation of key works of the English physicist Stephen Hales Statical essays: containing haemastatics; or, an account of some hydraulic and hydrostatical experiments made on the blood and blood-vessels of animals, del 1750–52, e Statical essay: containing vegetable statiks; or, an account of some statical experiments on the sap in vegetables (1738–1740), in 1756" That sentence looks like it's full of typos, and not properly italicized or structured. I'm not even sure what it's trying to say. Also, you should say "Ardinghelli is regarded as an expert.." or something to that effect instead of directly claiming expertness. -- Josh.vill (talk) 00:44, 31 March 2014 (UTC)
