Question About Semboku District
I'm wondering why you have changed the English transliteration to "Semboku". All local town signs, post offices, and government offices that I've seen use "Senboku". When the former town, Senboku, was incorporated into a larger entity (Semboku), the name was actually changed. Not so with the region (gun). Is there another reason that you had changed this?
- Ah - I see what you may have done - the kanji has actually remained the same, although the transliteration on the Semboku-shi website has changed. According to what I've seen and the folks that I've spoken with, this transliteration was done only to differentiate the new town from the gun. I'll be stopping by Misato-cho town hall tomorrow and I'll see if I can clear this up!
- Thanks for getting back to me! You know a lot more about this stuff than me, I'm just in Senboku-gun right now and was wondering if there was something amiss... I'll go through these entries and change them if you haven't already! (I'll probably not get to doing it for a few days, but I don't think that there's too much of a rush). Thanks again for getting back to me, and great work on the town merger work!
Hi Nameneko, in your very interesting alphabet tables there is a little error: the italian alphabet includes as a common letter the Q, and the five graphemes J, K, W, X and Y are considered «Variant/Digraph considered a separate letter»: as you can read here, «The foreign letters j k w x y are rarely used in italian language, but they are used more and more in the writing, borrowed by other languages». BYE! panapp〜パナップ (Say what?) 18:29, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
- Ciao Nameneko, thanks for your answer, it's perfectly comprehensible and now i agree you. A last note: in italian we have the grave accent for all the five vowels, and the acute accent fot the E (É) and for the O too (Ó)! For example, in "Giórgio" (George) and in "móstro" (monster) the accents are on the first "o" and they are acute, in "portóne" (main door) and "fulmicotone" (rapidly) they're on the second "o", etcetera. See ya ASAP, BYE --panapp〜パナップ (Say what?) 17:43, 20 August 2008 (UTC)
