ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Calutron[edit]

No, really. The Calutron article is indeed the main article for the Y-12 Project. It covers the research, design, building construction and operation. Hawkeye7 (talk) 01:35, 10 June 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for October 7[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Andersonville, Tennessee, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Norris Lake (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

DeFord Bailey[edit]

Re: your recent edit: While DeFord Bailey is mostly known for being a harmonica player, he also recorded songs as a singer so (leaving the Musicians Cat intact) I have added the Singers Cat back into the article. Shearonink (talk) 15:10, 31 October 2016 (UTC)

Ok. He should be in both categories, then. BrineStans (talk) 15:12, 31 October 2016 (UTC)
Categories sometimes tend to confuse me - for instance, I think that Songwriters (and Harmonica players etc) are child cats of Musicians and so having both on an article is redundant...but I don't know for sure. Shearonink (talk) 15:39, 31 October 2016 (UTC)

Appalachian + Intrusive R[edit]

Hello, sir. There seems to be a debate on the "intrusive R" in "warsh." I will start by saying this r technically is intrusive. And that there is a page called Linking and intrusive R. However, the page Linking and intrusive R refers to a specific linking phenomenon. In order to explain this Intrusive R, I have to explain Linking R first. Here is the definition from the page:

In many non-rhotic accents, words historically ending in /r/ (as evidenced by an ⟨r⟩ in the spelling) may be pronounced with [r] when they are closely followed by another morpheme beginning with a vowel sound. So tuner amp may be pronounced [ˈtjuːnər æmp].
The phenomenon of intrusive R is an overgeneralizing reinterpretation[11][12] of linking R into an r-insertion rule that affects any word that ends in the non-high vowels /ə/, /ɪə/, /ɑː/, or /ɔː/;[13] when such a word is closely followed by another word beginning in a vowel sound, an [r] is inserted between them, even when no final /r/ was historically present.

Other pages typically make a distinction between this Intrusive R and the intrusive r in "warsh" by referring to the latter as an epenthetic r, e.g. Baltimore accent and Western Pennsylvania English. And that's why I would rather use the term epenthetic r to describe the r in "warsh." Anyway, before making any edit of the sort, I wish to hear your response, first. Thank you.LakeKayak (talk) 17:00, 21 December 2016 (UTC)

If you suspect the linked page is incorrect, then you'll need to provide a source noting the intrusive r is epenthetic. BrineStans (talk) 18:14, 21 December 2016 (UTC)

I have a source, but I need you to verify it: https://books.google.com/books?id=UFBuVbL8qiwC&pg=PA27&lpg=PA27&dq=epenthesis+%2B+warsh&source=bl&ots=qko-RvnXYj&sig=0CZsMWitQ2kR6GX8xhG71MHG90o&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiRl7XMw4bRAhXpr1QKHc1iAoYQ6AEIMzAE#v=onepage&q=epenthesis%20%2B%20warsh&f=false.

That appears to be a valid source. It doesn't mention the Appalachian dialect, so if you make the change, keep the current cite (the Montgomery one) in addition to adding this one. If you edit this article in the future, be sure to cite your information. This article has received a lot of poor quality additions in the past, and editors are quick to revert anything unsourced.
