"Most wanted articles" for Crimean Tatar Wikipedia[edit]

No problem! I thought that I had not done the unicode formatting correctly and wasn't sure if it was readable. Then I had to work on something else and was going to come back later. But good to know that is working for you! Let me know if you need anything else and I'll see what I can do. Stu (aeiou)I`m Researching Wikipedia 00:09, 26 April 2012 (UTC)

Hurricane-proof building[edit]

That article says "Tornadoes, cyclones, and other storms with strong winds damage or destroy many buildings. However, with proper design and construction, the damage to buildings by these forces can be greatly reduced."

The third pig in this story utilized proper design and construction and so greatly reduced the damage inflicted by the puffing of the wolf (which totally obliterates crappier houses, comparably to hurricane force winds).

Much like the statement that the story features anthropomorphic animals, the hurricane-proof building claim is covered by the story itself, a primary source. "The wolf huffed, and he puffed, but try as he might, he could not blow the house down!" Not "chose not to". Not "could have if he tried harder". He simply could not. In some versions, he huffs and puffs, then huffs and puffs again. This is presumably twice as windy as the wind which easily decimated the wooden house (and thus likely met the criteria for a Category 5 storm). Still, the brick house stood.

Given this information from the primary source, a typical reasonably educated reader should find it apparent that this is indeed a hurricane-proof building. For the same reason we don't need a secondary source to say the animals are anthropomorphic (and that the sky is blue), I reckon we don't need a source for this straightforward description.

The hurricane-proofness(?) of the house is a defining characteristic of the story (if it blew in, there'd be no point), so it belongs in the lead. If there was a more precise term to use, such as Hurricane-strength wolf breath-resistant building, I'd be all for it. But we must work with what we have, and what we have suffices, I think. InedibleHulk (talk) 03:11, 5 September 2012 (UTC)

Hi, InedibleHulk. To me, to include the words "hurricane-proof building" implies that the story makes some reference to hurricanes, or that it was based on a popular fear of houses being torn down by hurricanes. A wolf is not a hurricane, and I don't remember any version where his breath is even compared to a hurricane. And while the story may reflect popular fears about hurricanes, I would like a source that states that.
The article currently says house number two was made of sticks, not necessarily high-quality lumber, so it's reasonable to say that it could be blown down by a wolf with typical, but not extraordinary, fairy-tale powers. At any rate, it is not up to us to extrapolate the details about the strength of his breath in what is really a simple story; I see "hurricane-proof building" not as "sky is blue", but as OR.
I would like to change it to something that more accurately and simply reflects the story. For instance, Three Little Pigs is a fairy tale featuring anthropomorphic pigs who are menaced by a wolf until they finally build a house strong enough to withstand the wolf's breath." That's probably not ideal, but there are many ways to summarize the story in one sentence, without having to refer to hurricanes, which to my mind brings up images of pigs talking to FEMA officials and putting tape on their windows. Lesgles (talk) 03:39, 5 September 2012 (UTC)
It doesn't explicitly say the puff is hurricane-strength and I know of no hurricane inspiration, but it is readily apparent we're not dealing with average wolf breath here. Remember, the Wikilinked article makes clear the term also applies to tornado and other strong wind-resistant buildings. No, the stick house isn't prime lumber, and yes, it was assembled by an animal with hooves for thumbs. But it stays standing for a while, withstanding regular winds, a wolf knocking on the door and (in some illustrations) a "Home, Sweet Home" wall hanging on a nail that was likely hammered there. But then BLAMMO! Debris everywhere in one fell blow. I've never been puffed by a wolf, but I've been panted on by a dog. It barely registers. This wolf is a Category 2 here, at least. Granted, I may be moving into OR territory now, but there's a fine line between what is obvious and what takes some reasoning. Where it's drawn is not always clear.
I'm not totally against you altering the lead (especially if your version's better), but I'll look for a reliable source, anyway. It might exist. InedibleHulk (talk) 04:51, 5 September 2012 (UTC)
This doesn't exactly back my point, but it's vaguely supportive of a connection. InedibleHulk (talk) 05:02, 5 September 2012 (UTC)
I see someone else removed it. While it's fun to think about the exact strength of the wolf's breath, I just don't think mentioning hurricanes is necessary in the article. I do agree about the fine line with OR, though. I added a sentence to the intro summarizing the story; see what you think. I'm afraid I did add another [citation needed] tag; it's reasonable to assume the story is old, but I'd at least like to know what the 1840s source is. Lesgles (talk) 23:17, 5 September 2012 (UTC)
I liked your version. I was about to change "first and second pigs " to "first two pigs", but someone else deleted it all right as I hit Edit. The fact tag is cool. I actually mentioned this was dubious to another editor on my talk page earlier today. I didn't add it. InedibleHulk (talk) 23:41, 5 September 2012 (UTC)

Funny anecdote[edit]

Given your answer re the pronunciation of the Polish name at the ref desk, and not having any idea how the subject herself pronounces it, I once had a client whose name appeared on my monitor when she called in about her account as Kadlaczek. I asked, without her introducing herself, "How can I help you, Mrs. kadLAcheck. She got indignant, said "everyone knows it's pronounced "Cadillac", and insisted on speaking to my manager.... μηδείς (talk) 04:04, 16 May 2013 (UTC)

Irish phonology[edit]

Hello Lesgles,
I've just reviewed the translation of this article you made nearly three years ago for the French Wikipedia as fr:Phonologie de l'irlandais. It was really good! I just changed a bit of the wording by places to make it sound more in line with the usual practice of French linguistic literature. One point bothers me somewhat however: the translation of the pair caol / leathan in Irish or slender / broad in English by fin / large in French. No problem with "large", but perhaps I would rather have imagined "mince" for slender, or even "étroit" as the expected antonym of "large". Is this a terminology you came by yourself or did you pick it from some French source? I'll check anyway, but if you remember it may save me some time searching Face-wink.svg Thanks again for this great contribution. Aucassin (talk) 20:41, 19 August 2015 (UTC)

Hi Aucassin, thanks for your many useful edits! I'd almost forgotten about the translation, and it was certainly in need of some revision. As for the translation of slender and broad, I remember looking for a French source but not finding one, so I think I just guessed. Feel free to change to whatever seems most logical to you, or if you can find a source, that will be even better. :) Lesgles (talk) 22:00, 19 August 2015 (UTC)
Thanks! I once read a Parlons gaélique (about Irish Gaelic) by Patrick Le Besco, edited by L'Harmattan in the collection Parlons.... This collection on (mostly) rare languages is of very variable quality, but this book and especially its phonetic section were good enough as far as I can remember. It is referenced by GoogleBooks but unfortunately without a preview, so it'll have to wait for my next visit to a library. Aucassin (talk) 23:30, 19 August 2015 (UTC)
That sounds great; I look forward to seeing whatever information you can pull from it. Lesgles (talk) 20:13, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
Ah, I found a preview on Amazon.fr. Le Besco seems to mostly use palatalisé and non-palatalisé, but he translates "caol le caol, leathan le leathan" as "étroit et étroit, étendu et étendu". Lesgles (talk) 21:08, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
Thanks! I hadn't read your message before going to the library... there I found the same Face-wink.svg I incline to think there are no standard layman's terms in French because the topic is just not salient enough here, so all one can find are linguistic publications using the proper technical terms of palatalisé and velarisé. All the same I replaced the instances of large/fin by étendu/étroit and reference Le Besco, to have at least a source for the terminological choice. Aucassin (talk) 10:22, 2 September 2015 (UTC)
Great, thanks! Lesgles (talk) 17:32, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

The Wikipedia Asian Month Edit-a-thon @ The Met will be hosted at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Saturday November 16, 2019 in the Bonnie Sacerdote Classroom, Ruth and Harold D. Uris Center for Education (81st Street entrance) at The Met Fifth Avenue in New York City.

The museum is excited to work with Wikipedia Asian Month for the potential to seed new articles about Asian artworks, artwork types, and art traditions, from any part of Asia. These can be illustrated with thousands of its recently-released images of public domain artworks available for Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons from the museum’s collection spanning 5,000 years of art. The event is an opportunity for Wikimedia communities to engage The Met's diverse Asian collections onsite and remotely. Asia Art Archive will host a sister event in Hong Kong next week.

12:30 pm - 4:30 pm in Bonnie Sacerdote Classroom, Uris Center for Education
81st Street entrance, Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1000 Fifth Avenue


And there will be sandwiches and Wiki-Cake!

Thanks, and hope to see you there! --Wikimedia New York City Team 16:45, 14 November 2019 (UTC)

Symbolum (religio) moved to draftspace[edit]

An article you recently created, Symbolum (religio), does not have enough sources and citations as written to remain published. It needs more citations from reliable, independent sources. (?) Information that can't be referenced should be removed (verifiability is of central importance on Wikipedia). I've moved your draft to draftspace (with a prefix of "Draft:" before the article title) where you can incubate the article with minimal disruption. When you feel the article meets Wikipedia's general notability guideline and thus is ready for mainspace, please click on the "Submit your draft for review!" button at the top of the page.

Thanks, you caught it before I put the speedy delete template up. I actually intended the page for the Latin Wikipedia. Lesgles (talk)
