IPA[edit]

No really, it still needs IPA clean-up, unless "Hughell" is suddenly standard pronunciation. :-) JackyR 04:07, 3 March 2006 (UTC)

Remove the tag?[edit]

I did some work to improve this article; can we remove the Wikify tag? Granted, the article does still need work. ProfessorPaul 22:28, 8 October 2006 (UTC)

I have removed the wikify tag - article is sectioned, has wikilinks, etc. Replaced it with a cleanup tag. JubalHarshaw 17:41, 18 October 2006 (UTC)

Chauvinism[edit]

Removed a sentence about Maria Mitchell that was out of place, "Maria Mitchell, a visiting American astronomer, was "riled" by Whewell's chauvinist teasing while dining at Trinity College high table (www.theguardian.com/science/2010/nov/21/royal-society-lost-women-scientists)." I'm sure Whewell was being chauvinist, but without other examples this addition is simply inappropriate. Larsobrien 21:48, 16 February 2015 (UTC)
