  • Well, don't worry I'll do my best to help you :)

I can help you translate things into Spanish and I can review your translations. I saw ,for instance,you cannot typewrite Spanish characters like accents or eñes, my keyboard can do it very well, so...

By the way, you can review my contributions in the English wikipedia, because English is not my mother tongue, as you could notice.

One thing (please don't take amiss my words, mmm)in Spanish, in the titles of books or CDs or whatever, it is not obligatory to start all verbs, nouns, adverbs and pronouns with a capital letter as in English, you can feel free to do it, but the only word which has to start with a capital letter is the first one :)

Your lists are quite complete, I don't know what to add, but I will keep on searching things for them :)

Do take care!

Sweet regards!

Linguistic history of Spanish[edit]

Are you working on this? Because if it's done it it should be merged into either History of Spanish or Iberian Romance Languages, I think. Even if there's more it maybe should go into one of those articles? Herostratus 00:32, 28 November 2005 (UTC)

Source in "History of the English Language"[edit]

Fiona Apple, "Criminal"[edit]

Languid accurately describes Apple's style, particularly in "Criminal," and I'm not the only one who thinks so.

  • "...Apple's trademark languid, off-time verse style..."
  • "...Apple's languid vocal delivery..."
  • "...she sings in a languid voice..."
  • "...her disc's languid sound..."
  • "...this song that displays a languid Fiona..."

Not all of these refer specifically to "Criminal," but her style in general is not exactly hyperactive. I don't feel compelled to add the judgment back in and I don't have a problem with bold edits, but there's no need to talk trash. --Tysto 18:54, 11 December 2005 (UTC)

-walla[edit]

Your question on Khirad's talk page page has been answered. :)

Yeah, sorry I didn't get to it. But I'm somewhat relieved. -vāla (वाला) can be used so many ways, and I would've just bored you with my Hindi grammar books! By no means exclusively a Parsi thing, no! But whenever you do see a name with the suffix there is always that possibility - especially after an anglo word. Khiradtalk 05:03, 25 December 2005 (UTC)

List of Spanish words of various origins[edit]

  • Then you should remove español for the same reason. You are right, caput and cauda come from Latin but cap and cua are not Spanish words. I had more doubts with español than with capicúa. Can you check the "Breve diccionario etimológico de la lengua española", please? My references are español and capicúa. Surogase 22:45, 17 December 2005 (UTC)
  • Yes, España comes from Phoenician i-sch phannim meaning rabbits' island or rabbits' coast, but español is of provençal origin according to the "Diccionario de la Lengua Española published" by the Real Academia Española (the same dictionary that says that "capicúa" is of catalan origin). Surogase 11:47, 18 December 2005 (UTC)
  • Just a small correction, español comes from Provençal, not Catalan. I get your point with List of Spanish words of Latin origin, but why not a subsection for romance languages or a List of Spanish words of Romance language origin? The reason I put that words in the list is that although they ultimately come from Latin, they entered Spanish from other languages and are still identical to the words in the language of origin. So it is not a direct "evolution" from Latin but an import from another language that did the evolution. Another case would be grupo from the Italian gruppo. What about Spanish words of Basque origin in List of Spanish words of various origins? Surogase 22:21, 18 December 2005 (UTC)

Spain and Arrianism[edit]

Hi, Hraefen. I am very sorry for disturbing you but I have seen that you have re-added some material I removed from Reconquista. In the discussion section I added a note about that as far as I know, vast majority of Spaniards by the time of the muslim invasion were not Arrian. Could you please discuss with me about why do you think Arrianism was common among Spaniards inhabitants (It was common among the Visigoth as far as I know, but vast majority of Spaniards were not visigoths but under visigoths rule). I am very sorry for disturbing you by asking this.

Thanks a lot and best regards, jamuki

University of Wisconsin-Madison Arboretum[edit]

Alas I am far, far away from Wisconsin. Hope someone will add photos of the arboretum; I would very much like to see them. All the best, and happy new year, -- Daderot

  • Maybe I'll get out there myself (when there's still snow) and then maybe one in the summer. It's a beautiful place.--Hraefen 03:00, 7 January 2006 (UTC)

changes[edit]

Yes, I have been making changes. If you have been monitoring my changes you should notice that I have added footnotes for racial/ancestry makeup. Footnotes have indicated UK CENSUS, US CENSUS etc. You can look at the Scottish people page for instance. I have noticed that another user seems to make massive generalizations about ancestral statistics and I make the necessary changes using Census reports. Furthermore, I have been responsible for making sure statistics are accurate when it comes to stating ethnicity. I have noticed on other pages, no effort is made to back up facts with professional sources70.30.71.252 16:47, 12 January 2006 (UTC)

Bat Lake / Rat Lake[edit]

I really don't know what reference would give the official name of the lake. Local usage (here in Mountain Lake) is Rat Lake. I'm not sure what Delft residents call it. There is a DNR or wildlife sign posted at the lake, and I'm not even sure what it says. I'm thinking that sign says Bat.

An interesting fact about that lake is that for the past several years there has been a pair of Red-necked Grebes nesting there. This is the farthest south in modern records that this species has nested, not counting along the Pacific coast.

Anyway, my preference is Rat Lake. JonHarder 02:20, 20 January 2006 (UTC)

You have my curiosity up concerning these lakes. As a county wildlife club member, I visit most of these lakes in the spring and summer during the spring bird migration. This is what I found:
  • 1992 Cottonwood County General Highway Map lists the disputed lake as Bat Lake.
  • Cottonwood Couny Highway Map (2003) names it Rat Lake.
  • Minnesota Place Names names it Rat Lake stating the name comes from the muskrats that inhabit it. If you're interested in how places got their names, this is a great site. To find lakes, select a county, then Go! and then select Lakes & Streams below.
I am going to give preference in the article to the Rat Lake name. I am also putting the lakes in a two column table, dividing them by watershed.
I noticed a couple of discrepancies.
  • Parso Lake is not on either of my maps or the MN Place Names site.
  • Summit Lake which I have never heard of before, is listed on dry on the MN Place Names site. I am removing it from the list.
  • Harder Lake was omitted from Dale Township. This is supposedly named after one of my ancestors.
  • Swan Lake was omitted from Dale Township.
  • Three Lakes was omitted from Lakeside Township. Perhaps one of these three is Parso?

Marsh Lake[edit]

Embarrass[edit]

  • Hi, Regarding the word embarrass, the word entered the English language through French, but into French from Spanish.[5] BestPrimetime 00:57, 18 February 2006 (UTC)
  • This illustrates my problem with the English etymology pages on Wikipedia. It's ultimately from Latin and it took a trip through Portuguese, Spanish and French. I think the obvious answer is to list them all at Latin, but apparently others feel it's much easier to list it three times at all three Romance languages, but not at Latin. Bass ackwards. Check out the Spanish etymology pages to see what I hope the English etymology pages will eventually become. I would spearhead the movement myself, but I just don't feel like having the 8,023 edit wars and arguments necessary to do it.--Hraefen 20:17, 18 February 2006 (UTC)
    • You just made up that bit about it being from Latin. It's likely originally from an Iberian Celtic language. If you'd like to learn more about the word embarazar feel free to read the article I wrote about it. --Primetime 22:20, 19 February 2006 (UTC)
  • I see that you've already found it at List of Spanish words of Celtic origin, so let's just leave it at that and leave the whole Portuguese thing out of it.--Hraefen 22:35, 19 February 2006 (UTC)
    Come to think of it: almost all words in Spanish, English, etc., are derived from Proto-Indo-European. For example, the "List of Spanish words derived from Arabic," page is technically incorrect because many of those words came from Aramaic. So, perhaps a note should be added to these pages specifying that it's for words directly derived from Language X. --Primetime 23:06, 20 February 2006 (UTC)
  • I fully agree that some of the words currently listed as being from Arabic may in fact be ultimately from some other language. I am fully behind any attempt to provide alternate theories for anything as long as a source is provided. The source I used when creating the Spanish etymology pages says all of the words at the Arabic page are from Arabic. If you have a source that says differently, by all means go ahead and add that info, but please do not subtract info or recategorize a word (i.e. move it to a different page) without discussing it first because the source provided bears out any given word's current classification. It's ok, in fact desirable IMHO, for multiple theories to be given and for one word to appear on more than one page. Are there specific Arabic words that we should discuss?--Hraefen 00:04, 21 February 2006 (UTC)

Please delete the photo american parsi from the article... it doesn't serve any purpose...

2. 90 % of books published in India do not have ISBN. Books publihsed before 1970 do not have ISBN. What to do for such books.

3. Do you mean to say that a book is not authoritative if it does not have ISBN.

Your reversions[edit]

Look at this [7]. 158.91.206.205 is the IP I used before I was registered. The date did not seem right to me so I researched the date the language was extinct and it was the eighteenth century not the 1800s. The writer must have been confused. I just found that you gave me a warning here [8] for correcting it. It was changed back but if you still think it is incorrect tell me.Tim Q. Wells 01:09, 12 March 2006 (UTC)

Spanish language[edit]

Hi Hraefen, I am also interested in contributing to issues on Spanish language and etymology so if you like we can exchange ifo POV. I have just found the article you have created/contributed to :"List of Spanish Words of Arabic origin", I was trying to create another page of similar content. Doing so is very hard, it is nearly impossible to find all words of arabic origin and have never found a complete list anywhere. What is the aim of this article? Is it supposed to include ALL Spanish words of arabic origin or just an example of some? In any case, the list, in its present state offers only a fraction.--Guzman ramirez 09:39, 6 April 2006 (UTC)

Cool thanks Hraefen. I dont know if you know any Spanish but a site that can help (its helpful as only one source is needed) is the Real Academia de la Lengua Española www.rae.es which is the official and ultimate source on Spanish etymology. When u are in the site, you have to click on "Diccionario de la lengua Española" on the top right of your screen. Once you are in, you just write the word you are interested in and it will tell you its origin.


hmm are you sure this is a proper way to proceed? Check out my page: Spanish Words of Arabic origin


Sorry for bombarding your userpage, but I have to defend the RAE: I have just checked up on esquirol and it says:

Del catalan. esquirol, y este de L'Esquirol, localidad barcelonesa de donde procedían los obreros que, a fines del siglo XIX, ocuparon el puesto de trabajo de los de Manlleu durante una huelga.

Esquirol has nothing to do with Greek. It comes from a town in Catalonia called l'Esquirol where, in the 19th century, workers carried on working during a General Strike. (an esquirol, as u surely know, means someone who breaks a strike by working.)

Believe me you can trust the RAE and it generally does not stop at the first, second or third degree of origin (if there is one).

The RAE, as the academie française for the French language, "owns" in a way the Spanish language (together with the academies of every Spanish speaking country). It is they who decide what is correct and incorrect Spanish. Any source which contradicts the RAE is simply misinformation.--Guzman ramirez 22:15, 6 April 2006 (UTC)

  • No one owns any language. The RAE has the political clout to make its influence felt in things like dictionaries and school textbooks, but etymology encompasses many languages other than Spanish. Being the most influential body in setting standards for pronunciation, vocabulary, etc. If you want to be deferential to them in all areas and take their version of the story as infallible in your own research/studies, fine. But no dictionary of etymology is 100% correct, end of story. It doesn't matter if the organization which produces it is sanctioned by a government or not. And assuming that the city of l'Esquirol is named for a squirrel (I guess I can't say for sure that it is right now), the word definitely comes from Ancient Greek.--Hraefen 22:35, 6 April 2006 (UTC)

Hehehe, you know yesterday I was thinking about why you might think Esquirol comes from Greek, and I finally worked out that you probably think Esquirol means squirrel in Spanish! The Spanish word for squirrel is ardilla (pronounced ardeeyaa).--Guzman ramirez 10:12, 8 April 2006 (UTC)

Btw, the RAE, being a website is not 100% correct, that is why it is updated every year correcting its mistakes and incorporating the results of new etymological studies.--Guzman ramirez 10:12, 8 April 2006 (UTC)

WP:NPA[edit]

I understand you have decided to take it personally that the triple metre song lists were deleted, but you need to realise that there was consensus to delete, involving multiple editors, and that the comments made in those debates were valid and went direct to policy. Numerous entries were either unverifiable (as not published in sheet music form) or wrong (asserting 12/8 as triple when it is not). Also, you may not make personal attacks. Note that if you do so, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. Just zis Guy you know? 22:29, 21 June 2006 (UTC)

  • Personal? Attack? I was simply spouting off to someone who seemed to be upset about the deletion as well. A little commiseration. I never brought anyhing your way, so I contend that you're the one being personal. Your side won the afd, so why do you even take the time to entertain the grumblings of the losing side? You seem to have an overly-strict interpretation of what constitutes an attack. I did not swear or call names. I simply said that you're spiteful and confrontational (which you keep proving by not letting this feud DIE) and said that your knowledge of triple meter is dated. So what? Those are criticisms of your interpersonal skills and your knowledge, both of which are things that affect content and discourse on Wikipedia (especially now that you're an admin). I thought this feud had died and I hope it does. The ball is in your court. All you have to do is not reply.--Hraefen 15:22, 22 June 2006 (UTC)
  • Yes, you were spouting off. Please don't. I am a big boy and can take a fair bit of abuse, but the people who argued in good faith for deletion of that content on grounds of firm policy are entitled to your assumption of good faith. Oh and next time you want to rake over the coals of a long dead argument, do consider not doing so. And if you must, don't blame others for starting it, inna "you-invaded-Poland" stylee. Just zis Guy you know? 22:16, 22 June 2006 (UTC)
  • I guess by "rake over the coals" you mean that I made a post at someone else's talk page here, not yours. My comment there named no one specific and you had the option not to respond. And I don't buy your argument that you're doing this on behalf of "the people who argued in good faith..." With every continued post on my talk page (have I gone to yours? no) you are proving my contention that this is an axe your are grinding gleefully. What's more... it's all completely inconsequential as far as the content of Wikipedia is concerned. I've not contested the outcome of that afd and I've not made any comment to you that wasn't in response to something you brought up. So why do you keep coming back here? I obviously don't respect your opinion (is that in violation of WP:JzG is infallible?), so please (see, I can be nice) don't post here unless it concerns something of consequence. Let's see if you can respect this reasonable plea or if you need to have the last word in this matter.--Hraefen 04:34, 23 June 2006 (UTC)

I agree with you about Spain[edit]

  • Hello, I agree with you about Spain being a pretty interesting country. Spain does have a lot of Germanic blood. However I think most people confuse Latin Speaking with acutally being Mediterrian while Spaniards are also Mediterrian. They are a composite of Mediterrian/ Nordics as most Spaniards say on the Ethic survey of Spain. Thanks (24.60.161.63 18:43, 28 June 2006 (UTC))
  • I'm not entirely sure what this is in reference to. So, do you have a citation for "as most Spaniards say on the Ethnic survey of Spain?" I would be very interested to see something like this. There has been some fierce debate on this very topic and I'd like to see some info that isn't from a website that has an obvious pro- White/Germanic agenda. Thanks.--Hraefen 18:53, 28 June 2006 (UTC)
  • It is from the the Offical national Census of Spain Found here at the CIA world fact book:https://www.cia.gov/cia/publications/factbook/geos/sp.html#People. This was one of the websites I found that published the Spanish Census. If you look under Ethic groups it shows most Spaniards agree that they are of Mediterrian/Nordic stock. What are they debating about? I think most people are confusing with acutally being Germanic with having Germanic culture and language. That what it seems like to me. Thanks.

(24.60.161.63 19:14, 28 June 2006 (UTC))

  • XGustaX what is your problem with Spaniards? Why do you want them to be German or Germanic? You have serious issues related to race... Have you ever been to Spain? Do you know anything about its history or people? The CIA factbook is not the "Official national census of Spain". And the statement that Spaniards are a "composite of Mediterranean and Nordic types" says nothing except that the CIA has not dared to divide Spaniards into ethnic groups (Catalans, Basques, Galicians, Canarians etc...) So it has simply decided to mention in this section that, as in every Mediterranean country, some people are dark and some people are blonde....how useful :-).

--Guzman ramirez 18:08, 29 June 2006 (UTC)

  • We are not talking about Language. We are talking realtives, which clearly they are. My sources stand Hraefen. The National census does also break people Catalans etc, into groups but in terms of language and culture not ethicity. They are all still a compostite of Mediterrian/Nordic stock. As most of Spain is mixed. I am from Spain, I know you wouldn't compare Spaniards to the Maltese who are clearly majority darker then Spaniards.((24.60.161.63 19:36, 29 June 2006 (UTC))

What you talking about XGustaX? Youve never been to Spain in your life. You are a Swedish Argentinian who lives in the US. You say it clearly in your User page. As for who is "darker"... I dont know and its not really an issue. Why are you obsessed with these dubious racial themes? And what national census are you talking about. There is no census that divides Spaniards on racial grounds. Not even with Roma Spaniards. Please stop spreading your own ignorance about my country I find it quite offensive. I think you should direct your opinions to an internet forum more in tune with your ideology. --Guzman ramirez 20:34, 29 June 2006 (UTC)

Bigote[edit]

  • As always, my source is www.rae.es. Get into the site, click onto "Diccionario de la lengua Española (top left) then type in the word (Bigote) in the space given and click consultar. I like this etymology. Apparently clean shaven Spaniards associated moustaches with Germans and their tendency to say "By God" all the time. Thus the word for Moustache in Spanish became bigote.--Guzman ramirez 18:54, 29 June 2006 (UTC)
  • No there is no word similar to bigote in French (its Moustache in French as well). It does say quizas, although in past editions of the RAE it doesnt. There is no known alternative etymology for the word Bigote and it is certainly of germanic origin.I think it should be mantained...

--Guzman ramirez 19:33, 29 June 2006 (UTC)

  • It is Germanic, for sure, but I really am just not buying the story offered by RAE. If RAE is not confident enough to give this etymology without the "quiza," why are you? The English word bigot shares a very similar etymology, so there seems to have been different meanings of the word in French/Old French. [9]. So, they ultimately come from a Germanic source, but this is not the same thing as saying that Spanish bigote comes from German. The problem is, the RAE did not give a date of entry. At what point in time were Spaniards and modern German speakers in a context of enough cultural contact to borrow words directly from one another?--Hraefen 20:07, 29 June 2006 (UTC)
  • Ok you are right. We must be sure about the etymology. Ill see if I can find some study on the issue!--Guzman ramirez 20:35, 29 June 2006 (UTC)
  • When the Kingdom of Spain passed under the hands Charles I of Spain and V of Germany, the Iberian peninsula recieved a number of German soldiers from the German Holy Roman Empire. These soldiers had the custom of saluting by putting their finger on their upper lip and shouting "Bei Gott!", which was interpreted by Spaniards as the word used for moustache. Voila! --Guzman ramirez 11:11, 30 June 2006 (UTC)
  • Okay. That is definitely more plausible. What's the source of this info?--Hraefen 15:00, 30 June 2006 (UTC)
  • All sources are in Spanish: I just typed "Etimología de Bigote" on google.
  • Being in Spanish is not a problem for me. The problem is, many etymologies that one finds on the internet are often either over-simplified (intermediate forms/languages are often left out) or they're straight-up incorrect folk etymologies. And ususally, if the story is really "interesting" to non-etymologists and if it is presented very matter-of-factly without mentioning the uncertainties that often go with word histories, the more likely it is to be wrong. Spanish gringo and English fuck are both good examples. Anyway... I just want to be sure that any source we use is credible, not just some random website that no scholars would try to hold to any standards. this site [10] says the term originated from "normandos (escandinavos)" which I'm assuming means they were speakers of some form of either Swedish or Old Norse/Norweigan. It's Germanic, but it's not German. Can you find a number of "reputable" sources and then we'll compare them? We might end up just giving multiple theories on this one. It's the uncertainty of etymology that can make it fun. The exact history of some words are difficult to pin down. Let's keep at it though. I'll look in "Breve diccionario" tonight when I go home.--Hraefen 23:09, 30 June 2006 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Fall Apart[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Fall Apart requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a band, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for musical topics.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you. DarkAudit (talk) 18:06, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life[edit]

I am leaving you this note because you have edited this article in the past. While vandal-watching today I noticed the removal by CaseyHamMD (talk · contribs) of the entire "Criticism" section. This looked to me like common vandalism, so I reverted it with the rollback tool. Checking the article history, I saw that rollback had reverted a string of 12 edits and, checking them, it was clearly not a case of simple vandalism: on the other hand, the edits showed a pattern of removing properly-sourced criticism and inserting favourable opinions which suggested that CaseyHamMD had a COI and was not editing from a NPOV. He had made one earlier edit of a similar type, which I have also reverted.

He is a new editor, first edit 24 Sep, and his talk page was blank. I have given him a standard welcome paragraph and a note explaining what I have done, outlining relevant WP policies, and inviting him if he wants his changes made to outline them on the article talk page and try to reach consensus.

As I personally know nothing about the subject, I am posting this note to editors who have worked on the article and seem to be still active, so that they can take part in the discussion and/or watch the article.

A tag has been placed on The Rumor requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia.

Well, it is speedy deletion. In any case, whether you saw the notice before the deletion took place or not, I thought the decent thing to do would be to let you know why it was eligible for speedy deletion, rather than you finding out about it later and not knowing why. --Mosmof (talk) 02:46, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
      • Yeah, I get that it's speedy and I do appreciate you informing me (it is always appreciated), so I guess maybe my gripe is against speedys in general. What is so damn important that it has to be done in under a day? Not everyone who would potentially have an important contribution to a deletion debate is the type of person that logs into Wikipedia every two hours. It puts all of these types of decisions in the hands of the Wikipedia addicts, and I don't think that is in the benefit of Wikipedians as whole or non-Wikipedian Wikipedia users. But, that's not your fault, so sorry for the snarkiness.--Hraefen Talk 20:49, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

File source problem with File:Lake Louise Minnesota.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Lake Louise Minnesota.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright.

If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. —innotata 21:49, 6 March 2012 (UTC)
