Talk:Mate (beverage)

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


Continuing from the discussion started here:

"Yerba mate" is not the plant name. The plant name is simply "mate" in south america, or "mate tree". Calling it "yerba mate" is a confusion outsiders make, it can be identified as simply "mate" in south america. "mate herb" (called yerba mate or erva mate in south america) usually refers to the actual crushed leaves ready for use. The plant itself is the mate tree/plant. Yerba/erva simply means herb, it is not part of the name and should not be used here. Either translate it or change it to just mate through the article. The yerba mate article should also be changed. There are many articles about south america with a lot of confusion on names in the english wikipedia. ~~ Someone living in south america

Removal of Portuguese terms and addition of incorrect terms edit war[edit]

  • gourd (mate in Spanish, cuia) and is incorrect. The correct term is guampa.
  • straw (bombilla) removes (bomba/bombilla). Not sure why the Portuguese term was removed.
  • Incorrect commenting out of "by saying "bring the talking gourd" (cuia de conversar); an Argentine equivalent, especially among young people, being no es un micrófono ("it's not a microphone"), an allusion to the drinkers holding the mate for too long, as if they were using it as a microphone to deliver a lecture"
  • Similarly, addition of unsourced, but possibly correct terms.
  • Addition of cebadores, twice, when the term has not been defined.

The editor has decided to keep his preferred version against warnings. Walter Görlitz (talk) 13:33, 24 May 2016 (UTC)

I added as a Spanish to Portuguese to English dictionary. I will keep my corrected version if you don't find an argument against that dictionary. --RoRo (talk) 13:38, 24 May 2016 (UTC)
That addresses one point. What about the others? Walter Görlitz (talk) 13:48, 24 May 2016 (UTC)
