honorific_suffix for Russians[edit]

К вашему сведению, Igorkhait, без всяких обсуждений, начал массово добавлять некие honorific_suffix для русских персоналий. Как вам это? --XXN, 22:49, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

It likely needs to be reverted, but somebody should talk to the user first.--Ymblanter (talk) 20:10, 15 September 2017 (UTC)

Small Favor if Anyone's Interested[edit]

Over at Baal Hammon, the first reference appears to be in Russian -- I think I see the word "Moscow in there":

Дьяконов И. М. Языки древней Передней Азии. Издательство Наука, Москва. 1967

If anyone wants to spare a minute, I would appreciate if I could get an English translation of the title.

Thanks in advance,

Alephb (talk) 08:37, 22 September 2017 (UTC)

@Alephb:, the author is Igor M. Diakonoff, Iranica translates the title as Languages of ancient West Asia.--Ymblanter (talk) 14:30, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
I appreciate it. Alephb (talk) 14:45, 22 September 2017 (UTC)

RfC on lead sentence for Abram Petrovich Gannibal[edit]

I started an RfC on the lead sentence of the article and how the subject should be referred to. MezzoMezzo (talk) 03:57, 30 October 2017 (UTC)

Vandalism on Template:Terms for types of country subdivisions[edit]

{{Terms for types of country subdivisions}}

Can someone intervene? User:Ezhiki, User:Ymblanter? (talk) 18:17, 3 November 2017 (UTC)

Item linking in Wikidata - duplicates[edit]

But the Russian items had been connected in Wikidata long before. User:Ezhiki created the enWP items, User:GZWDer (flood) created new items for enWP. No interwiki links between ruWP and enWP for more than a year. (talk) 22:38, 3 November 2017 (UTC)

Would have helped if Ezhiki would have connected the new items correctly in Wikidata. (talk) 22:39, 3 November 2017 (UTC)

Editing help needed[edit]

More eyes needed for article improvement on Useful idiots where the current Russian interference in the US elections issues seem to have spilled over. SPECIFICO talk 19:26, 4 November 2017 (UTC)

Naming discussion[edit]

Comments are requested at Talk:Lada (goddess) regarding what should be the primary topic for the term Lada, if any. Thank you. —Sangdeboeuf (talk) 01:28, 6 November 2017 (UTC)

Russian declension[edit]

Regarding the article on Russian declension.

I'm new to the Russian language. Can you tell me why the order of the cases in the wikipedia tables is nom, acc, dat, gen, etc. instead of nom, gen, dat, acc? I asked the instructor of the class I'm taking. They confirm that the usual order is nom, gen, dat, acc. Why are gen and acc switched in the wikipedia tables? Compare to the Russia Today tables.

-- Thanks Telecomtom (talk) 20:00, 14 November 2017 (UTC)

The standard order in Russian is indeed NGDA, I am not sure why it is done differently in the article.--Ymblanter (talk) 08:55, 15 November 2017 (UTC)
@Telecomtom: The case order is pretty accidental and established rather by tradition then by logic. The NOM-GEN-DAT-ACC order is quite old and traced back to the first Greek and Latin grammars. Expectedly, the authors of the first Russian grammars followed that familiar order. However, coincidentally the traditional order somewhat resembles case hierarchy. The reason why in materials for learners of Russian NOM is followed by ACC is because NOM=ACC for a certain class of nominals.--Lüboslóv Yęzýkin (talk) 20:18, 15 November 2017 (UTC)
