malika is never used in chessEdit

I've never heard malika used in chess the correct term is wazir. Hakeem.gadi 13:14, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

May be used in some places; see this from a speaker of Palestinian Arabic. (see second comment). Robert Ullmann 14:03, 20 July 2008 (UTC)
This entry does not mean that ملكة means queen in the game of chess, but simply means queen. Under synonyms it lists وزير, but only in the sense of chess. There is probably a less confusing way to design this page, but I haven’t thought of it so far. وزير is not really a synonym for ملكة, but for queen. Perhaps it should be changed from "Synonym" to "See also". —Stephen 15:21, 21 July 2008 (UTC)
