Older milestones[edit]

Article changed over to new Wikipedia:WikiProject Elements format and de-stubbed by maveric149 on 14 Nov 2002. Elementbox converted 11:18, 6 July 2005 by Femto (previous revision was that of 20:22, 28 June 2005).

Pronunciation[edit]

Why is the first letter of the element pronounced "i" as in inside and not "ue" as in mueller, when the village it named after is pronounced by the latter? The article does not explain this and the Swedish wikipedia does not indicate this.. Is it an error in wikipedia? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.123.60.118 (talk) 14:16, 30 August 2012 (UTC)

Probably because this word has been fully assimilated into English, and now obeys pronunciation rules of English. Double sharp (talk) 14:26, 2 September 2012 (UTC)

The pronounciation guides seems to be original research as there is no source given for it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.123.60.118 (talk) 15:41, 30 August 2012 (UTC)

Quick search on Merriam-Webster confirms it. I suspect all of them are ref'd to there except the superheavies which are mostly ref'd to periodicvideos.com, so perhaps it's an implied ref like we use for the other infobox fields to CRC?! Double sharp (talk) 03:52, 24 October 2013 (UTC)
”Ue” as in ”Mueller” lol ... what Sorcerer’s Apprenctice could have predicted all the back on 30 August 2012? Vesuvius Dogg (talk) 12:54, 8 April 2019 (UTC)

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to one external link on Yttrium. Please take a moment to review my edit. You may add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it, if I keep adding bad data, but formatting bugs should be reported instead. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether, but should be used as a last resort. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true or failed to let others know (documentation at {{Sourcecheck}}).

No special action is required regarding these talk page notices, other than regular verification using the archive tool instructions below. Editors have permission to delete these "External links modified" talk page sections if they want to de-clutter talk pages, but see the RfC before doing mass systematic removals. This message is updated dynamically through the template {{sourcecheck}} (last update: 15 July 2018).

  • If you have discovered URLs which were erroneously considered dead by the bot, you can report them with this tool.
  • If you found an error with any archives or the URLs themselves, you can fix them with this tool.

Name[edit]

Who changed it from yttria to yttrium, and when? Squee3 (talk) 15:45, 28 March 2017 (UTC)

I'm not sure you actually understand what went on in the discoveries of the elements, although your attempts to "iron out" discovery dates ought to have suggested as much. Yttria is the oxide and was always the oxide; it was then regarded that finding the oxide was as good as finding the new element within (so we can't apply a single set of standards without creating a total upheaval of the discovery dates; the most we can do is just state every significant date that might count as the discovery year). Yttrium is and was always the metal (similarly to zirconia/zirconium, ceria/cerium, and magnesia/magnesium.) Double sharp (talk) 07:17, 29 March 2017 (UTC)

USES:

Color televisions using CRT tubes are a historical use. They are basically obsolete. Currently Y containing phosphors are used in LED light bulbs. Can someone find a suitable reference and add the content? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 128.206.125.120 (talk) 15:38, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
