Portable stove[edit]

I just noticed your comments about the above article. You seem to know quite a bit about what might go into the history section; you even provide a citation. You ought to add the information you mentioned (on the talk page) into the article itself. I'd greatly appreciate it - I know more or less nothing about the topic.

I came to the article via a redirect from "primus stove", which the article makes no mention of. Primus stoves are certainly notable enough to warrant their inclusion in the history section (or possibly an entirely separate section). Remember the Wikipedia motto about editing: Be bold. If you see that information is missing from an article... add it! The fact that you know something that isn't included in an article more than qualifies you to write about it. Anyhow, I appreciate the useful comments you've left and I hope you'll contribute to the history section for the "portable stove" article.

Peter Trudgill and rhotic accents[edit]

You asked a question on the talk page for Peter Trudgill back in March 2006. I've written something now, but thought that you probably don't check that page anymore, so I've reproduced it here:

I know that this two and a half years late, but your theory doesn't quite hold up. Rhotic accents are still common in far north of England, near to the Scottish border. In addition, sporadic pockets of Yorkshire, Lancashire and Derbyshire were rhotic at the time of the Survey of English Dialects, yet these were all in the Danelaw. Originally, all English speakers were rhotic, but it has gradually died out. The isogloss that you mention is only one amongst many. Epa101 (talk) 17:16, 29 November 2008 (UTC)
