The name of the party[edit]

The right spelling of the name of the party according to Hebrew grammar

is "Yamina", not "Yemina". See the party website address, and see here - https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/%D7%99%D7%9E%D7%99%D7%9F#Hebrew  — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kuykuyl (talkcontribs) 14:27, 13 August 2019 (UTC) 
The right spelling of the Hebrew word that means "to the right" is "Yamina", but leaders of the party are calling their party "Yemina". Maybe this is because they are ignorant and maybe this is because they want to demonstrate that obeying the laws of grammar (like other laws) is not for the strong right. However, we must respect the way that the leaders of the party are calling their party. דוד שי (talk) 03:13, 14 August 2019 (UTC)
@דוד שי: are you sure that this is the name they have chosen in English, though? Because the same source we are using in the article to confirm "Yemina" has also used the spelling "Yamina" (less than 24 hours ago). So colour me confused. El_C 03:23, 14 August 2019 (UTC)
I don't know how they write their name in English, I just hear them speaking. However, you can see the spelling "Yemina" in Israeli newspapers, here, here and here. דוד שי (talk) 03:51, 14 August 2019 (UTC)
@דוד שי: I also see "Yamina" here, here and here. So, I'm not sure we have a definitive answer yet. El_C 04:02, 14 August 2019 (UTC)
P.S. Also, note that the Hebrew Wikipedia is using יָמִינָה. El_C 04:04, 14 August 2019 (UTC)
They chose to write at their website address (http://insite-media.biz/yamina/01/) "Yamina". — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kuykuyl (talkcontribs) 05:04, 14 August 2019 (UTC)
Is insite-media.biz their website? Seems more like a site of a PR company. דוד שי (talk) 06:07, 14 August 2019 (UTC)
דוד, אני לא מבין למה אתה מתעקש להנציח טעות בעברית. סמוטריץ' עצמו הסב את תשומת לבם של הנוכחים בעצרת הבחירות להגייה הנכונה — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kuykuyl (talkcontribs) 06:39, 14 August 2019 (UTC)
@Kuykuyl: This is the English Wikipedia, so please write in English. Anyway, do you have a source for that claim about Smotrich? El_C 06:46, 14 August 2019 (UTC)
See in minute 42. https://www.facebook.com/ayelet.benshaul.shaked/videos/vb.237683826350051/482745705633186/?type=2&theater — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kuykuyl (talkcontribs) 07:09, 14 August 2019 (UTC)
Thanks, confirmed. Unless there are further objections, I will be moving the page to the correct spelling. Not sure how the Yemina spelling came about, but it does, indeed, appear to be in error. El_C 07:14, 14 August 2019 (UTC)
Correct. I was contacted by a party official, who asked the named to be corrected to "Yamina". Atbannett (talk) 09:36, 14 August 2019 (UTC)
Thanks, Atbannett. And also thanks again to everyone else, for taking the time to settle this in a substantive manner. El_C 18:32, 14 August 2019 (UTC)
