Cyberbot did its job properly, but the dead link was to an apparently unpublished student paper. I removed the link, since there are two other sources cited for the same idea. Cnilep (talk) 04:13, 12 January 2016 (UTC)

New sections and article layout[edit]

It is always good to have new contributors to Wikipedia or to a particular article. There is, however, a tendency for new contributors to add information to a new section or to the "lead" (the upper-most section, the one without a header). New information can be very useful, but if it duplicates (or contradicts) information in existing sections, it may be better to edit those sections rather than to create a baroque and unwieldy article layout. That's not a Wikipedia policy; it's just my opinion. But I do hope new contributors will have a look at what is already here and change it or add to it where appropriate. Happy editing, Cnilep (talk) 03:08, 22 November 2016 (UTC)

Reference not cited[edit]

This book was in the list of references, but isn't cited in the text.

  • Thomason, SG & Kaufman, T (1992). Language contact, creolization, and genetic linguistics. University of California Press. ISBN 0-520-07893-4. 

I have therefore removed it, but if I missed where it is cited, feel free to put it back. Cnilep (talk) 06:20, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
