Twentieth anniversary on Wikipedia!![edit]

Invitation to join the Twenty Year Society[edit]

Dear Mahagaja,

I'd like to extend a cordial invitation to you to join the Twenty Year Society, an informal group for editors who've been participating in the Wikipedia project for twenty years or more. ​

Best regards, Chris Troutman (talk) 16:25, 4 January 2023 (UTC)[reply]

American English transcriptions[edit]

Hi, there! As someone knowledgeable in IPA and Wikipedia IPA conventions, perhaps you'd be interesting in contributing to this talk page discussion: Talk:American_English#Consistency of IPA phonemes for American English dialect pages. Wolfdog (talk) 16:59, 28 February 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Irish dialect sources?[edit]

Hi there! I've just been reading your amazing work on the Irish phonology page, and have noticed you've cited many different descriptive works for the various dialects. I'm currently working on some materials from the Doegen recordings and there's a handful of dialectic descriptions I haven't yet been able to lay hands on (I have a bunch already, but can't afford to buy any more and don't have institutional library access). I was wondering if you happen to have digital copies of any monographic dialect descriptions? In particular, I'm looking for any of the following studies:

  • de Burca 1958 (Tourmakeady)
  • Lucas 1979 (Ros Goill)
  • Mhac an Fhailigh 1968 (Erris)
  • Breatnach 1947 (Ring)
  • Sommerfelt 1929 (South Armagh)
  • Stockman 1974 (Achill Island)
  • Hamilton 1974 (Tory Island)

If you have any of these materials, I'll gladly provide my contact details (unfortunately I've forgotten my Wiki login details, so in the interim I'll try to dig out my login, or will set up a new account if I can't). Thanks very much in advance! (talk) 09:18, 16 May 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Sorry, I don't have digital copies of any of those, only paper. You could check whether any of them has been added to archive.org, though I wouldn't hold my breath. —Mahāgaja · talk 09:23, 16 May 2023 (UTC)[reply]
All good, I just thought I'd ask. I've been able to lay hands on a number of dialect sources (I have copies of the monographs on Iorras Aithneach, Cois Fhairrge, Aran Islands, Rathlin, Dingle, Tangaveane-Commeen, Meenawannia, West Muskerry, and also a digital copy of Stockman and Wagner on the Irish of Tyrone), I'm just trying to expand to as many sources as possible so I can establish isoglosses using additional material beyond what's included in LASID. Thanks anyway! (talk) 14:32, 17 May 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Identifying an American accent on Language Ref. Desk[edit]

You sure answered that as far as it could be answered. I didn't feel motivated to even try... AnonMoos (talk) 21:15, 5 June 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Power abuse on Wiktionary[edit]

Hello Mahagaja, and happy new year. I might have given you a heart attack with the title, but it's not about you :)

Yet again have I been blocked by the same admin (Fenakhay) who is extremely possessive on Arabic and Maltese entries. All I did was this edit - I invite you to judge whether it is vandalism.

My 2600+ voluntary edits have been awarded with being blocked for 1 year, cannot edit my talk page, cannot email anyone. I've only had negative interactions with this admin, who has a long record of unsubstantiated reverts and other tyranny - which is why I guess he needs to constantly delete his talk page which is clogged with complaints. (Use Internet archive if you wish)

The gist of my message is: Do you think I am being treated fairly? Synotia (moan) 18:39, 2 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]

FYI, the question of a Punic substrate in Maghrebi Arabic is not even that fringe, you can send our friend this for example. Synotia (moan) 14:29, 3 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
