Permanent link - Ceangal maireannach[deasaich | deasaich an tùs]

A bheil adhbhar nach eil 'Permanent link' air eadar-theangachadh oir tha e coimhead àraidh a bhith anns a' Bheurla air a h-uile duilleag?

Tha mi smaoineacadh gum bu chòir "Ceangal buan" a bhith air.

Am b' urrainn dha Admin sin a dhèanamh?

Sgrìobhadh Aistidhean[deasaich | deasaich an tùs]

Carson a tha daoine ag eadar-theangachadh ainmean Beurla mar 'Lord of the Rings' agus 'Star Wars' gu Gàidhlig. Chan eil adhbhar aige is chan eil cànanan eile ga dhèanamh. Dìreach cuir an t-ainm mar a bhitheadh e sa Ghàidhlig às dèidh an tiotail/a' cheangail. Cha bhithear a' toirt Terry Henry air Thierry Henry anns a' Bheurla no James Shurack air Jacques Chirac am bith.

Uill, carson a tha sinn ag eadar-theangachadh ainmean mar "Bìoball". Cha robh an t-ainm seo bho thùs san Eabhra. 'S e ainm Greugach a tha ann.
Chan eil cànanan eile ga dhèanamh? Ma tha thu a' creidsinn seo, 's e dearg amadan a th' annad. 'S e "Les Guerre des Etoiles" a th' air "Star Wars" no "Cogadh nan Speuran" anns an Fhraingis. Mar sin, tha e ceart dha-rireabh a bhith a' sgrìobhadh Tighearna nam Fàinne airson LOTR cuideachd. Tha iomadach cànan eile ga dhèanamh, so na bi gorach agus cum Gaidhlig beò le bhith ag eadar-theangachadh nanleabhraichean agus filmichean as ainmeile dhan a' Ghàidhlig.
Nach b'urrainn dhuinn bhith modhail? Tha 'dearg amadan' car cruaidh, nach eil?

Activity of Bureaucrats[deasaich | deasaich an tùs]

Note that I am active but generally only oversee things very loosely. It's far better that native Gaelic speakers or advanced learners contribute than that I add my beginner's pidgin Gaelic to the Wiki. Anyway I was on my holidays during July and was concentrating on soaking up the sun! So my apologies to BotMultichill and ByrialBot. If you want to attract my attention leave a message in Gaelic on my talk page here or in English on my English Wikipedia talk page if you need urgent action. I generally check in every week day although I may or may not do so at the weekend, depending on how busy I am with "real life". -- Derek Ross | deasbair 04:38, 31 An Lùnastal 2007 (UTC)

Betawiki: better support for your language in MediaWiki[deasaich | deasaich an tùs]

Dear community. I am writing to you to promote a special wiki called Betawiki. This wiki facilitates the localisation (l10n) of the MediaWiki interface. You may have changed many messages here to use your language in the interface, but if you would log in to for example the English language Wiktionary, you would not be able to use the interface as well translated as here. Infact, of the 1798 messages in the core of MediaWiki, 16.00% have been translated. Betawiki also supports the translation of messages of about 80 extensions, with almost 1000 messages.

If you wish to contribute to better support of your language in MediaWiki, as well as for many MediaWiki extensions, please visit Betawiki, create an account and request translator priviledges. You can see the current status of localisation of your language on meta and do not forget to get in touch with others that may already be working on your language on Betawiki.

If you have any further questions, please let me know on my talk page on Betawiki. We will try and assist you as much as possible, for example by importing all messages from a local wiki for you to start with, if you so desire.

You can also find us on the Freenode IRC network in the channel #mediawiki-i18n where we would be happy to help you get started.

Thank you very much for your attention and I do hope to see some of you on Betawiki soon! Cheers! Siebrand@Betawiki

Apologies[deasaich | deasaich an tùs]

This is from English Wikipedia I write here because the user has tried to get an answer from a you but is blocked?

Today I decided to begin an article on the harp on the Scottish Gaelic language version of Wikipedia. Having only written the opening part of the article, I have later found

1: the article erroneously retitled by someone who clearly does not have the best knowledge of Gaelic grammar

2: that the same is adding what I know to be unsubstantiatable statements about the harp to the article

As a result, I attempted to remove the material I composed from Wikipedia. But I found

3: that the same has blocked me from continuing to write the article that originated with me

4: that the same has cited vandalism as the excuse for blocking me from removing what I have written

Emotionally it's difficult to see why anyone would want to submit an article to the Scottish Gaelic language version of Wikipedia when they are so easily disenfranchised and when Wikipedia appears to find it so easy deny me the right to withdraw them, especially when hitting a problem right in the middle of the compositional process.

I find I can't even establish contact with the person who has done all this. Should I simply expect this to happen if I embark on writing an article for the Scottish version of Wikipedia? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.148.42.85 (talk) 21:21, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

Do you know what it is about can you intervene? Bpeps 22:02, 11 an Giblean 2008 (UTC)

You were blocked from editing the article for three days since you removed all the content from it and removed the categories. You also removed the interwiki links, plus the image. Please go and do the wikipedia tutorial I left on the old user page you had - "Wikipedia:Tutorial" . The text was being merged from another article. Clarsach is the common spelling.
Note also that there were already two articles on different types of harps on the wikipedia already.

Wikimedia UK[deasaich | deasaich an tùs]

Wikimedians in the United Kingdom are working to set up a chapter of the Wikimedia Foundation, which will aid and encourage people to collect, develop and effectively disseminate knowledge. A board of five members has been elected, and a company has now been set up. Membership applications are now invited, and will be processed as soon as we have a bank account. The organisation needs the support and involvement of people like you.

So far, most participants have been based on English-language projects, but we want to ensure that we work with and for Wikimedians in all languages. As this Wikipedia is in a language native to the UK, we are making contact with you.

We need to know what a new UK chapter can do to assist your project, and how we can best work together to make that happen. We are also looking for people who can translate short pieces of text, such as the first paragraph of this message, to help publicise the activities of the chapter.

Please do comment, make suggestions, and feel free to ask us any questions, whether here, on MetaWiki, or on the wikimedia-uk mailing list. Warofdreams 11:15, 1 an Dùbhlachd 2008 (UTC)

The LocalisationUpdate extension has gone live[deasaich | deasaich an tùs]

The LocalisationUpdate extension is now enabled for all Wikimedia projects. From now on new localisations that become available in SVN will become available to your project within 24 hours. Your localisations get into SVN from translatewiki.net typically within a day and at worst in two days. This is a huge improvement from the old practice where the localisations became available with new software. This could take weeks, even months.

The localisations done by our community at translatewiki.net are committed to SVN typically every day. When the system messages in English are the same as the local messages, they will now be inserted in a file and are available for use in all our projects in a timely manner

What this means for you[deasaich | deasaich an tùs]

Local messages have an impact on the performance of our system. It is best when messages are as much as possible part of the system messages. In order to remove unnecessary duplication, all the messages that have a local localisation and are exactly the same as the system message will be removed. What we ask you to do is to compare and proof read the messages in translatewiki.net and the local messages. You can then either remove local messages when the translatewiki.net message is to be preferred or, you can update the message at translatewiki.net.

Messages that are specific to your project will have to stay as they are. You do want to check if the format and the variables of the message are still the same.

Why localise at translatewiki.net[deasaich | deasaich an tùs]

When you localise at translatewiki.net, your messages will be used in all Wikimedia projects and eventually in all MediaWiki based projects. This is how we provide the standard support for your language. When messages change, at translatewiki.net you will be prompted to revisit your translations. Localising is more efficient because we have innovated the process to make you more efficient; there is text explaining about messages and we have applied AJAX technology to reduce the number of clicks you have to make.

How can we improve the usability for your language[deasaich | deasaich an tùs]

We expect that with the implementation of LocalisationUpdate the usability of MediaWiki for your language will improve. We are now ready to look at other aspects of usability for your language as well. There are two questions we would like you to answer: Are there issues with the new functionality of the Usability Initiative Does MediaWiki support your language properly

The best way to answer the first question is to visit the translatewiki.net. Change the language to your language, select the “vector” skin and add the advanced tool bar in in the preferences and check out the new functionality. And make some changes in your user page. When there is a need to improve on the localisation, please make the necessary changess . It should update your localisation straight away. We would like you to report each issue individually at http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Usability_issues.

When there are problems with the support of MediaWiki for your language, we really want to know about this. It is best to report each issue separately. In this way there will be no large mass of issues to resolve but we can address each issue on its own. Consider issues with the display of characters, the presentation of your script, the position of the side bar, the combination of text with other languages, scripts. It is best to try this in an environment like the prototype wiki as it provides you with a clean, basic and up to date environment. The prototype wiki is available for five languages but you can select any of them, change the preferences to your language and test out MediaWiki for your language.

We would like you to report each issue individually at http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Language issues. The issues you raise will all be assessed. It is important to keep each issue separate, because this will make it easier to understand the issues and find solutions.

Bot policy[deasaich | deasaich an tùs]

Hello. To facilitate steward granting of bot access, I suggest implementing the standard bot policy on this wiki. In particular, this policy allows stewards to automatically flag known interlanguage linking bots (if this page says that is acceptable), which form the vast majority of such requests. The policy also enables global bots on this wiki (if this page says that is acceptable), which are trusted bots that will be given bot access on every wiki that allows global bots.

This policy makes bot access requesting much easier for local users, operators, and stewards. To implement it we only need to create a redirect to this page from Project:Bot policy, and add a line at the top noting that it is used here. Please read the text at m:Bot policy before commenting. If you object, please say so; I hope to implement in one week if there is no objection, since it is particularly written to streamline bot requests on wikis with little or no community interested in bot access requests. Rubin16 07:18, 7 an t-Iuchar 2009 (UTC)

I don't have any objection, Rubin. Please go ahead as soon as you wish. -- Derek Ross | deasbair 15:32, 8 an t-Iuchar 2009 (UTC)

You'll find a short description at m:Cosmetic changes.py. BTW this script places categories just above iw-links but it should leave FA-links on its place.

Hm, tha thu ceart. A-rèir an license chan eil e ceadaichte idir, dìreach copy and paste a dhèanamh. Mar a tha mi a' faicinn, chaidh an teacsa a chur ris an aiste ron 15 an Iuchar 2009 fon chead GFDL far a bheil e ag ràdh: "This License preserves for the author and publisher a way to get credit for their work". Cuideachd tha iad ag ràdh ann an [8] "All text published before June 15th, 2009 was released under the GFDL, and you may also use the page history to retrieve content published before that date to ensure GFDL compatibility." Na mo bheachdsan tha sin a' ciallachadh gum feum eachdraidh na seann duilleige a bhith aig an aiste ùr. Ged a dh’atharraich an license gu Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License 3.0 am bliadhna, tha na seann aistean fhathast fo chead GFDL.

Cho fad' s a tha fios agam tha doigh no dhà ann sin a dhèanamh:

  1. 'S urrainn do na stewards leth-bhreac (duplicate) a dhèanamh leis a h-uile eachdraidh na duilleige. Le sin bhiodh ainm nan ùghdairean ris an aiste. Ma thogras sibh, bruidhnidh mi le aon de na Stewarts.
  2. Leis an contributors tool agus permanent URL anns a’ chiad "edit".

An-dràsta fhèin chan eil dad anns an aiste.

Tha moladh eile agam. Is dòcha ma bhios admin a' dùbhadh às an seann aiste agus ma bhios tu fhèin deònach na leth-bhreacan a dhèanamh (a' tòiseachadh mar aiste ùr ), am bi sin ceart gu leòr dhut?

Name change[deasaich | deasaich an tùs]

Moving the debate from the Talk:Prìomh-Dhuilleag#Wikipedia here as it's more appropriate. I'm all for leaving well alone but the lack of a Gaelic form for Wikipedia jars a bit. I did a quick reckie and there are numerous precedents for aligning the name Wikipedia with the spelling conventions and phonological (sound) rules of the language project in question. Here are some:

  • Ƿikipǣdia (Anglo-Saxon)
  • Uiquipedia (Asturian)
  • Vikipetã (Guaraní)
  • Wikiibíídiiyají (Navajo)
  • Viqùipédie (Norman French
  • 維基百科 (Cantonese)

As was correctly pointed out at that stage in the debate, something akin to Irish Vicipéid looks hardly better, even if spelled Bhicipèid. To which I agree. Gaelic is struggling enough with loandwords and badly formed half-loans that the usual rules of forming a good loan or neologism must apply:

  1. it must be recognisable (i.e. not opaque)
  2. it must be productive (i.e. lend itself to forming plurals, adjectives etc)
  3. it must not break phonological rules of that language.

1) rules out virtually all options based on native Gaelic words in this case. Wiki(_) has taken on very specific connotations and also there is no precedence to go that route. 3) rules out any option with an initial fricative (w/v/h etc, however spelled) as Gaelic categorically disallows initial fricatives in nativised loanwards. Compare warants > barantas, wall > balla, wuddacocc > budagoc etc. Bhictoria, bhideo and Bhèineas are not nativised words, they're bad attempts at spelling a word following sort of Gaelic rules, clear from the fact that in pronunciation, these have their English sound value. (Placenames like Bhatarsaigh are different, please see the main page talk page for why; I can repost in English if someone is struggling with the Gaelic there)

So following from 1 and obeying 3, that means we must resolve the initial w- in a Gaelic way. There are two attested options: backforming to b or vocalising it to u. That initially leaves us with the following (bearing in mind that stress should be on the initial syllable and that no long vowels should be in unstressed syllables):

  • i) Bigipeid
  • ii) Bigibeid
  • iii) Bicipeid
  • iv) Uigipeid
  • v) Uigibeid
  • vi) Uicipeid

Essentially the only difference lies with the choice of initial sound. As the b/p is within an unstressed syllable, preaspiration is not a problem so the outcome is the same. A preliminary debate suggested that the B- variants are at odds with 1) which I agree with, which would seem to leave us with

  • iv) Uigipeid
  • v) Uigibeid
  • vi) Uicipeid

Of these, I personally favour vi) as it follows 1) closely and does not break 3). It would suggest preaspiration but that does not strike me as a problem here. So that would result in /uçgʲɪpedʲ/ That initial syllable would also allow for 2).

That's my view. But at this stage, we'd like to invite views from other people as we'd like to get broad consensus. On the whole, I think it's important that we look at this seriously as the name is a big thing and if we succeed in making the Gaelic Wikipedia become popular, then we should try and not grace Gaelic with another word that doesn't sit well in the mouthes of native speakers. Akerbeltz 23:56, 21 dhen Dùbhlachd 2010 (UTC)

Thanks Akerbeltz for your good explanation, the suggested name Uicipeid makes sense to me.
Additional note, someone is bound to bring it up: p in an unstressed syllable is rare, but not unheard of: tuaireap, MacFhilip/MacPhilip, iompaich, teampall...
As said before, it would be nice to have broad consensus from the community here. So please leave any questions, comments and further suggestions under the section "Comments/Questions".

    In principal I'm all for a Gaelic form of the name (of the Roman-script 'pedias with over 150,000 articles, French, Portuguese, Catalan, Czech, Hungarian and Turkish have their own forms, and in my opinion rightly so), but as a gd-2 I have neither the linguistic knowledge nor the feel of the language to have an opinion about which form 'sits best' with Gaelic, so I'll happily go with the community's decision. However, I've a dark suspicion that even most fileantaich active at en-wiki don't visit gd-wiki often enough to notice this debate. To get more opinions, perhaps you might inform about it at Scottish Gaelic talkpage, and/or on user talkpages of those who claim (near-)fileanatachd through their en-wiki Babel boxes. I had a look and the accounts 'active' this year (that coincidentally means 'since 2008 including' as well) comprise An Siarach and LJElliott21 for gd-N and Lasairdhubh, MacRuasgail and Qcomplex for gd-4. --Thrissel 09:26, 23 dhen Dùbhlachd 2010 (UTC)

  • I've always thought of G as the Gaelic K, so I would have gone for Uig.
    What's the reason for losing the last syllable?
    And finally (from the technologist's perspective), while most people associate "wiki" with "wikipedia", it's a technology not a site. Wikipedia is built on wikis, and most active WP contributors recognise that. Personally, I'd be inclined towards translating wikipedia as a compound rather than a single word, and make "Uigi"/"Uici" into a prefix -- "Uigi-Peid". That way we establish a clear neologism for "Wiki" at the same time, and we maintain the stress pattern of the original without resorting to Irish-like "srac abuse".

Uill. Gabhaibh mo leisgeul, ach chan eil mi chòmhurtail le deasbuid às Beurla. Chan eil mi a'tuigsinn gu leor den Bheurla os cionn co-dhìu. Tha "wikipedia" agus "wikipedia na Gaidhlig" ri cluinntinn anns a' Ghàidhlig mar a tha. Mar sin chan e ceist "eadar-theangachaidh" a tha ann idir, ach ceist "thar-litreachaidh" (Ma 'se sin a' Ghaidhlig òifigiuil air transliteration). Mar sin, mhòlainn "Uicipedia". Ma bhitheas Gaidheal an ceann beagan bliadhaichean a' cuir blàs (nas) Gàidhealach air "Uicipedia" , cha dean sin cròn.--Innleadair 01:01, 24 dhen Dùbhlachd 2010 (UTC)

  • As the stress is initial on Uicipeid or Uigipeid, the hyphen would be misleading as that usually signals stress shift away from the first syllable. As uici- or uigi- would still be the first and stressed syllable, it's easily detached for other purposes. Uicigeadh for "wikifying' for example would work easily. The problem to some extent with Uigi- is that it is likely to send people into lip-rounding, making it more w- that a Gaelic initial. Which is not what we'd like to encourage.
    The reason for loosing the last syllable is easy. It's both historically accurate i.e. if Wikipedia had been an early Latin loan such as ecclesia, the ending would have been lost in borrowing. Secondly, but just is important, Gaelic does not allow ia in unstressed syllables. ia is always /iə/, which is not permissible in an unstressed syllable.
    It's not just transliteration, as that would result in a construct that's inadmissible in Gaelic phonology. We're in a way trying to capture what Gaelic would have done if it had borrowed this word organically, say at the same it it had borrowed ecclesia. Which is why Uicipedia is a really bad idea, we'd better stay with Wikipedia as that's at least a clear foreign term and doesn't pretend to be Gaelic, breaking several rules in the process. (Akerbeltz)

- Feumaidh mi aiteachadh nach eil mi ach beagan nas eolach na fad mona, ach tha da phatran fa-leth air iasadan Chuimrich bhon Bheurla- iasadan bho claisneachd agus iasadan bho sgriobhadh. Mar sin, tha am facal fwtbol airson ball-coise bho fuaim na Beurla "football". ach thanaig am facal airson cisean drochaide as teachd dhan Chuimris bho soighnichean ri taobh na rathaidean "toll" trath 'san 19th linn.

  • I also dislike the idea of putting something out there that breaks rules in the hope it'll get fixed by itself. Cross-linguistically, bad formations stick around too easily, sadly. Akerbeltz 01:45, 24 dhen Dùbhlachd 2010 (UTC)
    Sorry, I'm not sure I understand this. You say that hyphenation is bad because it shifts stress away from the first syllable so it's better to keep Wikipedia with its stress away from the first syllable? --Thrissel 13:19, 24 dhen Dùbhlachd 2010 (UTC)
    Everyone I've heard say it in English places the tonic stress on the "ped" syllable, as in the Latin. The initial syllable "wi" only gets secondary stress. If English had tonic stress on the initial syllable, the D in encyclopedia would probably have ended up slenderising under pressure from the I. At the very least it would have diphthongised rather than staying as two monophthongs. (I'm pretty certain that Scots would have gone all the way to slenderisation, even if English didn't -- compare Latin "Gallovidian" with Scots "Galwegian" -- but there's no record of the word in the DSL.)
    While in general I'm in favour of mimicking natural patterns of borrowing and as a learner I don't want to be responsible for altering a language, the pattern you propose breaks your own rule 1) -- it obscures meaning. The Gaelic words from Latin are all fully naturalised and very few Gaels know Latin. How many people in the UK even know that encyclopedia is Latin (I was misled by the Y and thought it was Greek!)? Personally I thing "uigi-pìde" is a more likely modern borrowing, by the same token as the Scots/English example above.

  • No, what I mean is this: unless there are specific clues, stress goes on the first syllable in a Gaelic word (if it can take a stress). Signs that stress is not on the first syllable are usually 2 capitals (Dùn Èideann, MacGumaraid...), long vowels outside the first syllable (Catrìona, buntàta...) or hyphens (sgian-dubh, taigh-beag...). So in Uicipeid, the normal rules would indicate that this word is stressed on the first syllable. If you put a hyphen in, that normally would indicate that stress is not on the first syllable. So unless the proposal is to indicate stress on the second syllable, the hyphen isn't needed. In this word the stress would be expected on the first syllable (following Gaelic rules) as that's the distinguishing part (i.e. there are many pedias, this one is a Wiki-pedia).
  • Yes, I agree on the stress placement in English or Latin but historically, over time Gaelic shifts stress to the first syllable irrespective of where it started. Even in relatively recent loans such as policeman > poileasman. ( Tha mi ag aontachad leis a' phuing sheo. --Innleadair 21:42, 24 dhen Dùbhlachd 2010 (UTC)) And we're not breaking rule 1), perhaps I didn't explain it properly, mea culpa :) What rule 1) means is that the word you're creating should make its meaning clear to someone who has never seen the word before. Either by being reasonably close to the word borrowed from or through being some form of compound that is self explanatory. For example, though foirmle is an Irish borrowing but reasonably close to the root formula, or a word like fòram for forum. The other type would be something like làrach-lìn or solas-sràide. Bad ones would be cainnich (for "quantify", borrowed from Irish) which is totally obscure. In that sense, both Uicipeid and Uigi-pèid would fulfill 1). Feel free to add it to the list of proposed forms but I can't support it (as the stress placement is counter to what Gaelic would normally do, both internally and in terms of borrowing). I totally agree that we should by no means foist yet another form on Gaelic that breaks the rules of the language - we just have to come to an agreement about what that would look like ;) Akerbeltz 17:33, 24 dhen Dùbhlachd 2010 (UTC)

Tha mi gu math teagmhach mu deidhinn "foirmle". Tha sin ri radh gu bheil mi a ' smaointinn gur e nua-Gaeilge a tha ann, agus o chionn's gu bheil "formula" na facal Laideann a tha a leantainn an riaghal "leatha gu leatha", agus le ciall sonraichte an cainnte na saidheans, air feadh an t-Saoghail, tha mi ga cleachadh gach cuid, An Gaidhlig, Gaeilge agus Beurla, direach mar a bhitheas eolaich eile gan cleachdadh 's an Fhrangais agus 'san Ghearmailtis.

  • Err... not in German it isn't, that's Formel, not formula. This thing about international words is just another urban myth. Chinese for one hardly has any if these much touted international words, as both the phonology and the writing system are not condusive to borrowing that way. There's very little that's true about every language or language community. What others do may well inform us, but it should not constrain us within our own language. Akerbeltz 00:46, 25 dhen Dùbhlachd 2010 (UTC)
    @Innleadair: Good point, but there is always a difference between the spoken and the written language. To me Uicipedia looks as if we are allowing English to take over the Gaelic language again, so in that case we could simply leave the name Wikipedia. I prefer Uicipeid because it distinguishes/seperartes itself from the English pronunciation and shows that the Gaelic Language is still able to create new words according to Gaelic rules. Nollaig chridheil dhut. --Sionnach 08:19, 25 dhen Dùbhlachd 2010 (UTC)
    Agus a leithid eile dhuibh is mòran dhiubh! I'll continue the various threads down here, gets complicated otherwise. Yes, that's nothing specific to the celtic languages, that words can get borrowed based on the written or the spoken form. There are caveats with both approaches.
    Apologies if this sounds a bit like a phonology lecture... we must be careful about distinguishing the conventions of speaking and writing. In Gaelic, the convention for loans that are, guesstimating, older than 100-200 years is that Latin/Norse/French/Scots/English v and w normally suffer what is called backformation. This means that speakers assume that v or w is the result of lenition and to obtain the unlenited form, you simply substitute the "normal" root sound. In this case this was b for many centuries. The other thing clear in these "old" loans is that the phonology of these words was almost completely aligned with that of Gaelic. Vervain became bearbhain /bɛrɛvɛNʲ/ and warants became /barəndɘs/. The v/w to /u/ change in this period is actually quite rare, most notably we have vík > ùig /uːgʲ/ and William > Uilleam /uLʲam/.
    Following on from that, things get interesting or messy, depending on your point of view. We get more and more words that have been "dressed up" as Gaelic, but with little or no change to the actual pronunciation. In this period, the w > u spelling becomes very popular: uèir, Uallas, uill... followed soon by v > bh: bhideo, bhìoras... But as I said, when you listen to native speakers or ask them to read a text that has these spellings, I have yet to come across one that actually says */uɘLɘs/ as the spelling suggests; they ALL to a (wo)man say /walɘs/ as if written Wallace. Same applies to uill/uel, which are very rarely pronounced different from the Scots/Highland English pronunciation of well.
    So why the lecture? Because the use of -pedia in a gaelicised word falls into that category of words that pretend to be Gaelic by changing the spelling but nothing else. Not having a go, but Gaelic has a very intricate spelling system that not many people understand all that well. The problem here is the ia sequence (that and the single e which is not allowed in Gaelic except at the end of words cf àite, maise... but has to be ei elsewhere). ia is very common in Gaelic but falls under that peculiar group of two letter combinations that have a fixed pronunciation. What that means is that, for example, a can be /a/ (caman, aran..) /ɘ/ (coma, loma...) or /au/ (ball, call...) depending on the position in the word. ia is always /ia/ or /iɘ/ (cf iar, ciar, fiaradh, iasg...) but I challenge you to find a Gaelic word that's not a Stòrlann invention that has ia outside the stressed syllable (usually the first). Therefore, irrespective of whether you spell it Uici-pedia or Uicipedia, the ia and the e break both spelling and phonology conventions. And then, as Sionnach points out, there's the even bigger problem of this being a cross between a transliteration and an English word, because by keeping the English -pedia spelling, I'd say the chances are 0 that people will pronounce this anything but /piːdiɘ/. Overall, I feel that this form would do more harm than good. Akerbeltz 11:40, 26 dhen Dùbhlachd 2010 (UTC)
    Incidentally, the uondaradh is misleading. If you listen, again, to people actually saying this it's wonder-adh, i.e. an English root with a Gaelic ending tacked on. Not uncommen at all in languages (in German you can circumfix ge_t to form the past (e.g. machen > gemacht "done"), including English words so you can have geskypet, genetworkt... but that doesn't make any of those words German). Either way, not really a model we want to follow I think. Akerbeltz 20:33, 26 dhen Dùbhlachd 2010 (UTC)
  • I'd say the chances are 0 that people will pronounce this anything but /piːdiɘ/
    Unfortunately, I'd put good money that this statement holds regardless of the spelling we settle on....

    Chances are probably low for fast acceptance but that does not mean we cannot lay solid foundations... and add a sound file. Co-là breith was also unheard of until the BBC spread the word.

Ceistean eile[deasaich | deasaich an tùs]

I think the "evidence" from other languages is mixed, the examples cited above notwithstanding. From a quick look, it seems to me that if a language has a very different word from the (pseudo-Greek) encyclopedia (eg. Finnish, Vietnamese), and that is the case for Gaelic, they just leave Wikipedia as is. If their word for encyclopedia is similar then sometimes they modify the word slightly to match it, and sometimes not. For example, French has simply added an acute, but they did not change it to Wikipédie which might have been expected (and, for that matter, w is not really a native French letter).

Aon cheist: could someone explain to me how exactly Uigipeid and friends should be pronounced? The IPA is not totally clear to me.

By the way: SBG gives pedagogy as beadaganachd - does that not contain the same root as "pedia"?

  • Well, as I said above, we should use the example of other wikis to inform ourselves but not to govern ourselves. I never said we should slavishly follow anything.
Ok, fine, just you kick-started the debate by calling attention to other Wikipedias and I wanted to point that those are not necessarily indicative examples. I think Frangais is a better example to follow than Normanais, but we all agree that it's ultimately up to Luchd na Gàidhlig.

  • The reason this debate is in English is because on this occasion we're trying to get as broad consesus as possible. Which means allowing those with gd-3 or below to participate. Besides, I'm happy to talk shop in Gaelic but I'm not that sure even gd-4+ would get the nuances about Gaelic phonology. Unless it involves non-Gaelic admins, there is plenty of debate in Gaelic.

Dealbhan[deasaich | deasaich an tùs]

A chairdean, is dòcha gum faca sibh gun robh user: RHaworth a’ cur delete air a' chuid as motha de na dealbhan a th‘ againn anns an Uicipeid seo, (faic an seo). Tha mi a’ faicinn a-nis gu bheil trioblaidean mòra ann air sgàth ‘s nach eil cead nan dealbhan ann an deagh staing. Tha cuid dhealbhan ann gun cead sam bith, agus ged a tha iad ann fad bhliadhnaichean, chan eil sin toirmisgte.

Stèisean Pheairt, dealbh a tha an seo fo ainm Gàidhlig agus ann an Commons fon ainm " Perth railway station"

Ach air an làimh eile tha mòran dealbhan ann le cead ceart air a bheil “delete” a-nis.(Duilich, ma bhios an cead fhathast ann an Gearmailtis, tha mi an dòchas gum bi eadar-theangachadh ann a dh’aithghearr.) ‘S ann gu bheil iad ann an Commons cuideachd a tha as adhbhar airson delete. Tha RHaworth dhen bheachd gu bheil sin nas fhasa airson obair-chàraidh agus mar sin feumaidh sinn gan sguabadh às. Ach chan eil riaghail sam bith ann tha ag ràdh gum feumar a h-uile dealbh a’ sguabadh às a tha a’ nochdadh ann an Commons cuideachd. Tha cuid de na dealbhan a’ nochdadh an seo fo ainm Gàidhlig agus aig ìre phearsanta tha mi fhìn dhen bheachd gum bu chòir dhuinn cuid de na dealbhan a chumail an seo fo ainmean Gàidhlig an àite ainmean Beurla. ChI sibh eisimpleir air ur làimh dheis.

Ach mar rianaire bu toil leam beachdan eile fhaighinn mun chuspair seo bho chleachdaidhean eile an seo. A bheil sibh ag iarraidh gum bi sinn a’ cumail dealbhan anns an Uicipeid againn fhèin, no a bheil sibh ag iarraidh gum bi mi gan sguabadh às?

PS: Feuchaidh mi beagan sgioblachaidh a dhèanamh air na dealbhan, ach bhiodh e math cuideachadh fhaighinn bhuaibh.

Feumaidh mi aideachdadh nach eil cus dragh orm mu chànan ainmean nan dealbh. 'S e mo bheachd pearsanta gu bheil e nas sgiobalta na dealbhan a chumail air a' Choitcheann, bha feadhainn agam fhìn air Uicipeid na Beurla 's ghluais mi iad dhan a' Choitcheann. Ma tha sinn a' dol a chur prìomhachas, chanainn-sa gum bu chòir sinn prìomhachas a thoirt dhan fheadhainn aig nach eil ceadachasan ceart. Bheil liost ann dhiubh?

PS a lot of the dab pages will never have interwikis, as that's down to language specific homographs, i.e. coire/peallag etc need dabbing in Gaelic, but not in English. And vice versa of course. Akerbeltz 13:53, 26 dhen Dàmhair 2011 (UTC)
Yes, generally those shouldn't trouble you, I was marking them with "dabpage meaningless in en", eg peallag. There are some specific cases though, eg none of my dictionaries confirms that Turtur can refer to Columbidae or features the word Eanga at all; or Nòs - should it be better linked to (dabpage) en:Custom or to en:Tradition (or not at all, being too/not enough specific)?
Btw contrariwise, I was often tempted to merge two or more articles but didn't dare to, eg Liadhag with Stamh - is it leaf vs stem or can one of the words be used for the weed as such? --Thrissel 16:10, 26 dhen Dàmhair 2011 (UTC)
I hadn't checked them all. Tutur can indeed be the bird or the sea creature; Eanga should be Eang and shouldn't be Eang at all, Eang at best are your feet, that should be Ball-bodhaig. Tricky about Nòs/Gnàthas/Tradaisean. I think we should use Gnàthas/Custom, Tradaisean/Tradition. I'd personally merge nòs into Tradaisean as it's not generally used in the same sense as tradition in English. Mostly I seem to encounter it in the sense of manner(ism)/style, rather than Tradition these days (cf seann-nòs). Akerbeltz 17:28, 26 dhen Dàmhair 2011 (UTC)

Wikipedian in Residence in Dùn Èideann[deasaich | deasaich an tùs]

Hi all. I'm a Bureaucrat on the Welsh Language Uicipeid (w:cy:Wicipedia Cymraeg). Can I draw your attention please to this new post at the National Library; I certainly hope that one of the requirements will be fluency in Gàidhlig, as we certainly would here in Wales. All the best. Llywelyn2000 (talk) 17:41, 22 dhen Ghiblean 2013 (UTC)

Just read the job decription; the requirements include:
communicate in English clearly to a wide variety of audiences...
Surely, the ability to speak Gàidhlig would be an advantage to this post and should have been mentioned. Llywelyn2000 (talk) 21:36, 22 dhen Ghiblean 2013 (UTC)
There's now a discussion on this issue at Wikimedia UK's Water Cooler. Buidheachas! Llywelyn2000 (talk) 08:05, 23 dhen Ghiblean 2013 (UTC)
Hey Llywelyn, diolch yn fawr for letting us know! I suspect there's probably no-one from the Gaelic Wiki who's local enough or who has enough time to contemplate applying for such a post as the NLS one. Sadly, there's not that many active folk on here to begin with... I'll check out and see if it's still "open" and if so, I'll pass the word on my social networks, who knows!

Roinnean-seòrsa[deasaich | deasaich an tùs]

A chàirdean, cha chreid mi gum bu chòir dhuinn a bhith buileach cho teann 's a tha tè na Beurla ach saoilidh mi gu bheil sinn a' cleachdadh na roinnean-seòrsa tuilleadh 's fialaidh an-seo, tha torr dùblachadh ann. Chanainn nach bu chòir dhuinn duilleag a chur ann an iomadh roinn ma tha iad gu soilleir fo chàch a chèile. Mar eisimpleir, ma tha duilleag againn air baile ann an Alba, cha leig sinn a leas a chur ann an [Alba] agus [Bailtean na h-Alba] oir tha [Bailtean na h-Alba] fon roinn [Alba] e fhèin. Saoilidh mi gu bheil na roinnean seo ann airson 's gum bi e nas fhasa rud a lorg ann an roinn ach ma tha sinn tuilleadh 's fialaidh leotha, bith cuid dhiubh ann a bhios cho mòr 's gum bi iad cha mhòr gun fheum. Dè ur beachd? Akerbeltz (talk) 09:34, 11 dhen Chèitean 2013 (UTC)

Ged a tha mi ag aontachadh nach eil againn air leantainn gach riaghailt Uici Bheurla, nam bheachd-sa tha an argamaid aig en:Wikipedia:Categorization#Subcategorization gu math reusanta. Faodaidh gu bheil grunn dhuilleagan ann a bhiodh na b' fheàrr air an liostadh an dà chuid fo roinn agus fon fho-roinn aice, ach san fharsaingeach, tha mi air roinnean mar sin a sguabadh nuair a mhothaicheas mi dhaibh greis mar tha [11]. --Thrissel (talk) 20:18, 11 dhen Chèitean 2013 (UTC)

Glasgo Meetup 18th August and 27 October[deasaich | deasaich an tùs]

Can I please draw your attention to the Glasgow Meetup at the Sir John Moore pub on the 18th August, at 1.00 pm onwards. If you're able to attend, please let me know, and I'll try and come up to meet you. I'm an Admin and Bureaucrat on the Welsh Language Wicipedia, and also an employee of Wikimedia UK, who could support you even further. Let me know by email, please, or on my Talk page. Llywelyn2000 (talk) 08:20, 29 dhen Iuchar 2013 (UTC)

The next Wikimeet in Scotland will be taking place in Edinburgh on 27 October at the Malt Shovel Inn. The Malt Shovel is a very short (i.e. 2-3 minute) walk from Waverley station as we hope to encourage Wikimedians (and potential Wikimedians) to attend from outside of Edinburgh as well. This marks the fourth Edinburgh Wikimeet, and the first since 2011 (as far as I can tell, that is). It also follows two successful meetups in Glasgow. We very much hope to see many faces new and old!
Details are available on the events page here. Llywelyn2000 (talk) 08:01, 18 dhen t-Sultain 2013 (UTC)
