Thank you for unblocking me on en:wikt. Actually I noticed that I was blocked just by chance, because I looked at my [user page]... as you may guess, usually I work on the Italian projects. Thanks again! --.mau. 07:38, 22 April 2016 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by .mau. (talkcontribs)

yup, I eventually read the thread in the Tea Room of en.wikt! --.mau. 19:45, 22 April 2016 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by .mau. (talkcontribs)


Hello Angr! [ˈɔɹeɪndʒ] is correct or wrong? Fête Phung (talk) 21:08, 22 April 2016 (UTC)

It's wrong. I'd transcribe it [ˈɔɹɪndʒ] for General American. Other accents will transcribe the first vowel differently, but I don't think any accent has /eɪ/ in the second syllable. —Aɴɢʀ (talk) 14:34, 23 April 2016 (UTC)
Hello Angr! [ˈɔɹəndʒ] is correct too? Fête Phung (talk) 22:04, 25 April 2016 (UTC)
Yes. A lot of accents don't distinguish between ɪ and ə in unstressed syllables. —Aɴɢʀ (talk) 11:50, 27 April 2016 (UTC)

thank you (pronunciation)[edit]

Hello Mr. Angr! It's correct to pronounce [ˈθæŋkʰ | jʉː] with a break? Fête Phung (talk) 13:46, 27 April 2016 (UTC)

Well, it isn't exactly incorrect, but it would certainly be unusual. It's normally run together like a single word (and the [k] isn't aspirated anyway). —Aɴɢʀ (talk) 13:50, 27 April 2016 (UTC)


Hello Mr. Angr! I've heard [ˈwɪɫsɐ̃n] at that dictionary, this pronunciation is correct or wrong? Fête Phung (talk) 14:33, 8 May 2016 (UTC)

I guess as a very narrow phonetic transcription, but the phonemic transcription suitable for a dictionary or encyclopedia would be /ˈwɪlsən/. —Aɴɢʀ (talk) 15:33, 8 May 2016 (UTC)
But I've heard /ˈwɪlsʌn/. Fête Phung (talk) 15:38, 8 May 2016 (UTC)
There's barely any difference between /ə/ and /ʌ/; we use the former in unstressed syllables and the latter in stressed syllables. Some dictionaries (e.g. Merriam-Webster) don't even bother with the distinction and use /ə/ in both stressed and unstressed syllables. —Aɴɢʀ (talk) 17:30, 8 May 2016 (UTC)
What do you hear here? Fête Phung (talk) 18:30, 8 May 2016 (UTC)
A computer-generated voice. —Aɴɢʀ (talk) 18:47, 8 May 2016 (UTC)
In fact, have you heard [ˈwɪɫsɐ̃n]? Fête Phung (talk) 18:56, 8 May 2016 (UTC)
I would have transcribed it /ˈwɪlˌsʌn/, but the point is that isn't a human native speaker of English, so it can't be used as a reference point. —Aɴɢʀ (talk) 19:59, 8 May 2016 (UTC)
This pronunciation is correct or wrong? Fête Phung (talk) 20:46, 8 May 2016 (UTC)

Hello! Can the word welcome be pronounced /ˈwɛlkʌm/? Fête Phung (talk) 15:41, 16 May 2016 (UTC)

Cathach of St Columba[edit]


I deleted the references to the "Old Gaelic" rubrics in Cathach as it is bullocks, I checked "them" today, to discover they are in Latin. See talk page of the corresponding Wiki article for more details. Cheers — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:16, 8 August 2016 (UTC)


Hi. Can you tell me what's happened to the index on cy-wiki-source please? Seems to have gone astray. There's an error message on the link. Thanks! Llywelyn2000 (talk) 19:12, 17 August 2016 (UTC)

I don't know, but it may have something to do with the fact that Welsh Wikisource apparently now has two namespaces called Indecs: as well as two namespaces called Tudalen:. I haven't been there in ages, so I don't know how that happened, nor do I know whom to report it to. —Aɴɢʀ (talk) 19:58, 17 August 2016 (UTC)

Discussion on Talk:Theresa May#Pronunciation[edit]

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Angr. This message is intended to notify administrators of important changes to the protection policy.

Extended confirmed protection (also known as "30/500 protection") is a new level of page protection that only allows edits from accounts at least 30 days old and with 500 edits. The automatically assigned "extended confirmed" user right was created for this purpose. The protection level was created following this community discussion with the primary intention of enforcing various arbitration remedies that prohibited editors under the "30 days/500 edits" threshold to edit certain topic areas.

In July and August 2016, a request for comment established consensus for community use of the new protection level. Administrators are authorized to apply extended confirmed protection to combat any form of disruption (e.g. vandalism, sock puppetry, edit warring, etc.) on any topic, subject to the following conditions:

  • Extended confirmed protection may only be used in cases where semi-protection has proven ineffective. It should not be used as a first resort.
  • A bot will post a notification at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard of each use. MusikBot currently does this by updating a report, which is transcluded onto the noticeboard.
Please review the protection policy carefully before using this new level of protection on pages. Thank you.
This message was sent to the administrators' mass message list. To opt-out of future messages, please remove yourself from the list. 17:47, 23 September 2016 (UTC)
