Pirahã reverts[edit]

Sorry for the delay in response; I was on a plane to Heidelberg. I reverted your edits because they removed some text and lumped some things together under one bullet point that don't really flow. I think you're probably onto something about de-listifying it. Perhaps we could present the same information while making it flow better if we use these facts to explain the recent controversy, a strand which is already kind of there in the text.

Some conventions[edit]

Hello. Please notice this edit. In particular:

  • Initial context-setting: "In combinatorial mathematics,..." Just saying "In combinatorics,..." doesn't do it becaue the lay reader will not have heard of combinatorics.
  • The title phrase is set in bold at its first appearance.
  • The variables m and n are italicized. (Digits, parentheses, etc., in non-TeX mathematical notation, however, are not italicized.)

These and other things are codified in Wikipedia:Manual of Style and Wikipedia:Manual of Style (mathematics). Michael Hardy (talk) 20:28, 24 December 2009 (UTC)

Context[edit]

Hello.

Please notice this edit.

At the outset, you need to tell the lay reader that mathematics is what the article is about. Your version didn't do that. (Neither would "In combinatorics,....", since the lay reader isn't usually familiar with that obscure word.) Michael Hardy (talk) 04:18, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for June 9[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Gloss Mountain State Park, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Cathedral Mountain. 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.
