Template talk:Language phonologies

I grouped together the dialects of English (that is, Old English, Modern English, and Australian English) and Greek (Ancient, Koine, and Modern). I would have done the same for German but I wasn't sure of a good term for the German German as opposed to Bernese German. I think that this will make the template slightly more useful than just having the language phonologies catagory. Ƶ§œš¹ [aɪm ˈfɻɛ̃ⁿdˡi] 21:29, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

Since German phonology clearly states it's the phonology of Standard German, I'm labeling it "Standard". —Angr 15:53, 28 January 2007 (UTC)


is the page for chinese phonology is non-existing or it is just not included in the template? thx. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:48, 3 February 2010 (UTC)

We don't have a "Chinese phonology" page, nor do we have an "X Phonology" page for any of the Chinese dialects... yet.— Ƶ§œš¹ [aɪm ˈfɹ̠ˤʷɛ̃ɾ̃ˡi] 06:23, 3 February 2010 (UTC)
That's not true, we have an article on Cantonese phonology and have since October. +Angr 08:22, 3 February 2010 (UTC)
We also have an article on Historical Chinese phonology, and I've just moved the phonology section of Standard Mandarin into its own article, Mandarin phonology. +Angr 09:08, 3 February 2010 (UTC)
Touché. The Historical Chinese phonology article doesn't strike me as a phonology article like the others. Maybe it's just woefully undeveloped. — Ƶ§œš¹ [aɪm ˈfɹ̠ˤʷɛ̃ɾ̃ˡi] 10:18, 3 February 2010 (UTC)
No, in its current state it isn't very phonological. It just needs work. It's actually a surprisingly old article; it was created about six years ago - it's been on Wikipedia longer than I have! +Angr 10:23, 3 February 2010 (UTC)


This template is getting lengthy. Would anyone oppose organization by language family? --Trɔpʏliʊmblah 13:59, 25 May 2010 (UTC)

That sounds like a good idea. It might be best to do a test layout here in the talk page or in a sandbox first. — Ƶ§œš¹ [ãːɱ ˈfɹ̠ˤʷɪ̃ə̃nlɪ] 01:03, 12 May 2012 (UTC)
