Works in Progress[edit]

  • Researching to create an article on Deafs in Popular Culture. (! Please let me know if you are an expert in Deaf culture who can help me make sure I am using inoffensive terminology.)
  • Considering getting permission from Cambridge University Press to use the IPA Handbook to create more Wikipedia:IPA for [Language] pages. I have sufficient phonetic knowledge to interpret the rules for allophonic variation presented by the Handbook, so it should be possible to create accurate pronunciation guides with no other knowledge of the language. Then the page will be there for non-experts to reference and experts to fine-tune. Does anyone have thoughts on this?

My 22-year-old, college-going friend and I were talking and the subject drifted to Wikipedia. My friend revealed to me that he did not know how to spell "Wikipedia," and, rather than learn, he finds the website by typing "wiki" into Google and picking it out from the search results.
