informal and nonstandard[edit]

Chào, informal and nonstandard are exactly the same thing? 162.222.82.194 (talk) 20:39, 1 January 2015 (UTC)

Not quite. Sometimes people use nonstandard spelling or pronunciation in formal contexts, whether by accident or unawareness. In those cases, the intent is to be formal, not informal. – Minh Nguyễn 💬 22:42, 1 January 2015 (UTC)
For the word vàng, [jaŋ˨˩] is an informal pronunciation, but it's standard ? 162.222.82.194 (talk) 23:17, 1 January 2015 (UTC)
That looks like a standard southern pronunciation to me. (There are multiple standards, as you know. What's standard in one dialect is nonstandard in another.) Why do you think this pronunciation is informal? – Minh Nguyễn 💬 23:19, 1 January 2015 (UTC)
Because when Southerners are reading a text, they will pronounce as [vaŋ˨˩]. 162.222.82.194 (talk) 01:05, 2 January 2015 (UTC)
As far as I know, fête [faɪ̯t] is an informal pronunciation in Quebec French, but I'm not sure that if it's standard. 162.222.82.194 (talk) 01:54, 2 January 2015 (UTC)
As I explained to you before, the northern dialect has historically been considered the prestige dialect, so does get used in more formal situations. There isn't one standard dialect of Vietnamese – most people will tell you there are three. So to a southerner, [jaŋ˨˩] may be standard (that is, "normal") but less formal than [vaŋ˨˩]. On the other hand, to a northerner, [jaŋ˨˩] is simply nonstandard. "It's all relative" may not be a satisfying answer to you, but that's the reality. Perhaps a better question to ask would be, "would this pronunciation be acceptable in [insert context here]?" As for [faɪ̯t], I don't know anything about French, so please don't ask me for my opinion on French pronunciation. :^) – Minh Nguyễn 💬 02:31, 2 January 2015 (UTC)
I live in Quebec, all the Quebecers pronounce as [faɪ̯t] or [fæɪ̯t], except in Radio-Canada, it's [fɛːt]. 162.222.82.194 (talk) 02:39, 2 January 2015 (UTC)

Distribution of speakers[edit]

For the article about the Vietnamese language, let's change the tone a little more. We would reword so that it says as if the citizens/residents/people of the countries (other than Vietnam) speak the language as a mother tone. Make it sound as if the language is not just spoken by the people of Vietnam but also various other countries. That means we will avoid describing that they are technically ethnic Vietnamese living in those countries. But sure, we still mention Vietnamese-speaking immigrant communities in many countries but lessen this kind of description. I took the idea from Spanish-German-Portuguese-language articles (especially Portuguese) and few more.

Also, should we restore this. Or we will use this former detail to expand into concrete sections, namely: official, minority, being taught in schools (which I'd already created one). Using this too http://www.griessersoftware.com/schools/. 96.251.73.129 (talk) 01:00, 11 January 2015 (UTC)

I think "Geographic distribution" is a bit limiting. The article needs to discuss the language's usage both on an official/national basis (which also affects minorities) and as a "heritage language" (that's the term used in the U.S., anyways). Alternatively, we could fold a lot of this information into the "History" section if we can find sources that place these developments on the timeline. There must be more sources discussing the development of Vietnamese second-language instruction worldwide. – Minh Nguyễn 💬 03:39, 11 January 2015 (UTC)

pronunciation of the word "cám ơn"[edit]

Chào anh Minh, the word cám ơn can be pronounced "cám mơn"? 162.247.120.44 (talk) 00:29, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

No, it cannot. If I say "cám ơn" and "cám mơn" very fast, you don't hear much of a difference. But when I say "cám ơn" and "cám mơn" more slowly, there is a clear difference in timing. "Cám mơn" is incorrect because the lips take too long to come apart. "Cám mơn" would mean something silly like "bran smoothed out by the fingers"! On the other hand, Google does return some results for "cám mơn"; a few people are using it as a "comical misspelling" in Internet forums. Maybe it's like how some Spanish speakers get a chuckle by saying "de nariz" instead of "de nada". – Minh Nguyễn 💬 05:15, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

thing[edit]

Chào, [t̪ɪŋ] is correct or incorrect? 199.59.79.104 (talk) 01:44, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

I'm not sure. 199.59.79.104 (talk) 23:53, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

County road shields[edit]

With your expertise in Ohio county roads, do you know what style of shield is needed for these lists:

I can make them, but I don't know what style is needed, if they're even signed at all. Thanks. –Fredddie 23:53, 4 February 2015 (UTC)

Fredddie, Delaware County generally posts county route numbers on street name blade signs (as "Del Co 123") rather than standalone reassurance markers. [1] However, their printed county maps use this style of shield. Franklin County only posts county route numbers on mile marker sticks and in utterly puny text on street name blade signs. [2][3][4] Their map isn't online, a rarity for an Ohio county engineer's office these days. – Minh Nguyễn 💬 06:18, 5 February 2015 (UTC)
So for our purposes, there would not be shields? –Fredddie 06:20, 5 February 2015 (UTC)
That's correct. Now that these articles are being created, it's probably finally time to start an article on Ohio county routes in general, where we can make use of the many shields in Commons:Category:Diagrams of Ohio county route markers and also discuss differences in construction standards and abbreviations ("CR", "C-", "CH", "CO", etc.). – Minh Nguyễn 💬 06:23, 5 February 2015 (UTC)

Lua development[edit]

https://test2.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:Lua_development_environment mentions a Lua script which was (probably) originally at http://scribunto.wmflabs.org/index.php/Module:TestUtils but is now a redlink. You appear to be the only editor of that page, so I'm wondering if you have this script, or know more about how I could get a copy. The 'toframe' method seems like it would be very helpful for my current purposes. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cariaso (talkcontribs) 12:04, 24 February 2016 (UTC)

DYK for Girolamo Maiorica[edit]

Updated DYK query.svg On 28 September 2016, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Girolamo Maiorica, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that all extant 17th-century Christian works written in the Vietnamese language's chữ Nôm script are attributed to Jesuit missionary Girolamo Maiorica? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Girolamo Maiorica. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Girolamo Maiorica), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

— Maile (talk) 00:02, 28 September 2016 (UTC)

Question[edit]

RE the DYK nom, the first source indicates that of the 14 surviving manuscripts 13 can be attributed to Maiorica, but later on another source states there are 15 works by him in the Nom (sorry I cant do special chars at the moment) language in the Museum. Is this a case where the sources themselves conflict? Or is there a translation issue do you know? Its only a little thing I know. I was wondering if the first was written before/after more or less were attributed to him. Only in death does duty end (talk) 15:44, 28 September 2016 (UTC)

@Only in death: Good question. First of all, rereading Ostrowski (2010), I'm coming to the conclusion that this source was originally misinterpreted in the article. He's saying:

  • (From the prose) Of the 14 works that have been found, 13 are definitely by Maiorica alone.
  • (From the footnote) These 13 works are the only ones that have a known author.

The editor who originally used this source at the Vietnamese Wikipedia misunderstood the phrase "the extant works of Maiorica" to refer to "the extant works, which were authored by Maiorica", rather than "the extant works that were authored by Maiorica". I think this explains the error about saying "all" originally that unfortunately crept onto the Main Page.

That section with the "15 works" claim appears to have been subject to some clumsy reference juggling at the Vietnamese Wikipedia before I translated the article. I've tracked down the intended source for those claims, Lã Minh Hằng (2013), but you're right that there's an inconsistency in the source material. (Hằng is a scholar of chữ Nôm literature at the Institute of Hán-Nôm Studies, which has been doing active research on Maiorica's works over the past several years.) I guess it's possible that a new work had been attributed to Maiorica between 2010 and 2013 – what do you think the article should say? – Minh Nguyễn 💬 21:45, 28 September 2016 (UTC)

Ah, my bad: the Vietnamese Wikipedia article apparently did interpret the source correctly, saying that all the attributed works were attributed to Maiorica, but I had misunderstood the phrase and dropped the extra qualifier when translating it to English. – Minh Nguyễn 💬 15:07, 6 October 2016 (UTC)

Disputed non-free use rationale for File:WXIX News 1993.png[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:WXIX News 1993.png. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the file description page and adding or clarifying the reason why the file qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your file is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you. -- Marchjuly (talk) 01:18, 18 November 2016 (UTC)

Added the requested information at WXIX-TV. – Minh Nguyễn 💬 16:32, 18 November 2016 (UTC)
I saw the edit you made, but that is does not seem to be any sourced discussion of this particular screenshot itself. A non-free image does not really need to be seen for a reader to understand the station changed its on-air branding from "19XIX" to "Fox 19(...)." What is needed is discussion of the screenshot itself, perhaps something about how it was unique in it's design or or something like that, and that content should be added to the article. Citing a caption which simply says the station changed it's call letters or branding on so and so date is something which can be more than adequately explained in text per WP:NFCC#1. Moreover, if the image is removed, then the caption/source would go with it as well. With nothing in the article about this particular screenshot and it's importance to the reader's understanding, the screenshot could be removed without being detrimental to that understanding per WP:NFCC#8. Anyway, I'll bring this to WP:FFD to see what others think. Yje discussion can be found at Wikipedia:Files for discussion/2016 November 18#File:WXIX News 1993.png. -- Marchjuly (talk) 23:25, 18 November 2016 (UTC)
