I'm having an Alan Sokal deja-vu. Unless this article is made intelligible, it sounds like faux postmodernist waffle. JFW | T@lk 10:10, 12 July 2005 (UTC)

Wolff, I wrote this article and I erased it. Please keep it this way. I do not want to associate myself with a project dominated by editors who resort to personal attacks like you do. Cruise

It's Jfdwolff for you. I am not saying anything about you but about the article, so my response was not a personal attack by any standard. JFW | T@lk 22:56, 12 July 2005 (UTC)

Oh, and if you are dissociating yourself from Wikipedia will you also leave kosher alone? JFW | T@lk 23:00, 12 July 2005 (UTC)

In the movie version of Michael Crichton's book Congo, one of the protagonists is interrogated by the local police chief. During the interrogation he remarks - this is like in Kafka. The police chiefs starts beating him and screams: "Who is Kafka? Tell me who is Kafka!" The question "Who is Osgood?" appended by one of the "expert Wikipedia editors," is like the question of the police chief "Who is Kafka?" Anyway, Osgood's book is referenced at the bottom of the article.

Theoretical background[edit]

Hi there. This is my first attempt on editing an article, so please inform me if I have breached some established standards. I didn't want to start deleting the existing text, so instead I tried to organize it in an order I think makes the article somewhat easier to follow. Rasputinous (talk) 11:11, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

I don't quite see how the section on the realism/idealism relates to the scale, so I'm thinking of finding the original paper to see if it is made more relevant there. If not, I think that segment should be deleted.Rasputinous (talk) 11:11, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

GFDL permission[edit]

I've just received an email from support@vstat.net (in response to a mail I sent them) that verifies they agree to licence the content of http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Semantic_differential&oldid=21436886 under the GFDL. Thanks for your patience everyone. --fvw* 01:15, August 24, 2005 (UTC)

Japonese figure[edit]

Is there any sources, that prove real usage of such figures in research. not in illustration of results? --Владимир Волохонский (talk) 18:31, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

Omission in USAGE section[edit]

I noticed an omission under the Usage section. The sentence in question states: "For example, the nouns corresponding to the listed 7 factors would be: Beauty, Power, Motion, Life, Work, Chaos". Notice there are supposed to be 7 factors, however, only six are listed. I'm uncertain of what the correct 7th factor noun would be so I am attempting to bring this to your attention. I'm so incredibly grateful for the work you do and for sharing knowledge with the world. OneHungryGhost (talk) 02:21, 27 January 2017 (UTC)
