Chinese Characters for Transcribing SlavonicEdit

Hello, I have had some questions regarding the Chinese characters for transcribing Slavonic. Do you feel it would be alright to include their pronunciation (eg. 鿦 shows pronunciation as vin, 鿚 shows pronunciation as gi, etc.)? —This unsigned comment was added by (talk).

鿚 represents gi, but I wonder if gi is actually the pronunciation? (were they read using original Slavic pronunciation, were they read using a Chinese approximation...?) (鿚 = gi is definitely important information.) —Suzukaze-c 21:54, 22 June 2018 (UTC)


  Hello, Suzukaze-c. You have new messages at MediaWiki talk:Common.css#Japanese uses MS PGothic but it should use Meiryo.

Hakka pronunciations for Malaysian place namesEdit

I'm wondering where you're getting these. We have really limited support for Hakka dialects - just Sixian and Meixian. — justin(r)leung (t...) | c=› } 19:15, 17 July 2018 (UTC)

I stumbled across "Hakka Lessons for Malayan Students" on Google Books. I am not sure what dialect it describes though. It's not easy to figure things out from 6-line snippets... —Suzukaze-c 19:23, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
Whichever it's describing is definitely not Sixian, which is only spoken in Taiwan. I've removed the reading at 新埠 for now. — justin(r)leung (t...) | c=› } 19:33, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
This says that it's Huizhou Hakka, which seems to be common in Malaysia. — justin(r)leung (t...) | c=› } 19:35, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
Oh, cool. —Suzukaze-c 19:36, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
It looks like Mantaro Hashimoto says it is the Meixian dialect. —Suzukaze-c 05:21, 18 July 2018 (UTC)

Use of Template:bor for on'yomi termsEdit

I think it was you that (I noticed) first started using {{bor}} for the etyms of on'yomi terms. Fumiko has decided to be a dick again over at 女性, here, and here. (I've blocked her for three days for abusiveness and edit warring.) I have read the documentation, and it looks to me like {{bor}} could apply -- especially as we haven't differentiated the historical stages of the Japanese language.

What's your take?

Hmm, was it me? I tend to not add the etymology for kango (can't be too sure...). At this very moment in time, near the end of July 2018, I think would use {{der|ja|ltc}} for kango???? I'm not sure though. I can be inconsistent with the things I do when I don't have a terribly strong opinion either way. {{bor}} absolutely makes sense too, and I disagree very much with Fumiko's dickish behavior. —Suzukaze-c 04:03, 24 July 2018 (UTC)
