Merge with Braid?
Seems like plait and braid should be merged... Is the usage of the word plait to mean a pleat common enough in any English speaking region of the world to make combining them a bad idea? Dfred 21:55, 7 September 2006 (UTC)
And after additional consideration I also propose that a Disambiguation page be left for Plait with choices for both braid and pleat usages. Please comment on this idea also. TNX --Dfred 16:30, 8 September 2006 (UTC)
- Sounds fine to me. —Keenan Pepper 22:41, 8 September 2006 (UTC)
- Makes sense. Is there a minimum required level of consensus on small things like this or should we just go ahead? --Rob* 10:22, 14 October 2006 (UTC)
- Since suggesting this I've been working on some other knotting articles... In doing research for those I've started to realize that the terminology for braids, plaits, and sinnets/sennits is not entirely standardized. Braid and plait do seem to be fairly interchangable, though plait and sinnet seem to also have some overlap. Thus I have been waiting until sorting-out exactly how to handle this in terms of disambiguations, merges, etc. When I have a chance I will post a summary of the references I have access to regarding these terms. --Dfred 19:06, 16 October 2006 (UTC)
