Thanks for your expansion of the Grammar section of the English language article[edit]

Hi, Wizymon,

I appreciate seeing expansion of the Grammar section of the article English language, as that kind of article improvement was called for by the last GA review and last peer review of the article, but no one else had stepped up to do it. I like the interesting examples you have added to the article. What are some of your favorite sources on the topic of English grammar? See you on the wiki. -- WeijiBaikeBianji (talk, how I edit) 16:48, 11 March 2015 (UTC)


Hello, WeijiBaikeBianji,
The Language Network book series is one of my primary sources for English grammar.-- Wizymon (talk) 23:48, 11 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Hi Wizymon, I have started a discussion about how to write the section on English syntax at the article English language. I, and two other editors, are undertaken a concerted effort to make this article live up to our standards for good articles. Like WeijiBaikeBianji, I appreciate your additions to the article, but I think they have some problems for making the article conform to our standards. Specifically I think that it gives undue focus to the question of V2 relics in the syntax, which is a very minor topic in the literature on English syntax when taken as a whole. And secondly the information you have added is not supported with citations to reliable sources. A requirement for good articles is that they stay on topic without unnecessary detail in niche areas, and that all information is supported with citations to reliable sources. My personal opinion is that the section on V2 syntax is probably not appropriate for this article, but would be better placed in the article on English clause syntax, where more detail can be provided about this kind of niche topic. But you are invited to the talkpage of the article to discuss how to approach the section with the other editors, so that we can reach a consensus about how best to improve the article. I hope you will participate.·maunus · snunɐɯ· 05:13, 16 March 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Why?[edit]

See my reply at User talk:Pfold. There are a lot of things that need improving and tidying up on WP, but it makes no sense to spend time "correcting" other people's grammar if the original formulation is in fact grammatically correct. --Pfold (talk) 15:46, 2 February 2016 (UTC)

I've answered you again on my talk page.--Pfold (talk) 10:09, 11 February 2016 (UTC)
