Wiktionary:Votes/pl-2010-01/Removing Modern English possessive forms section from CFI

Removing "Modern English possessive forms" section from CFI Edit

  • Voting on: Removing the section entitled "Modern English possessive forms" from WT:CFI and replacing it with a "Language-specific issues" section stating:
    Individual languages may have additional restrictions on inclusion. These will be mentioned on that language's About page. For instance, Wiktionary:About English notes that the community has voted to not allow most modern English possessives.
  • Note for comparison that the current "Modern English possessive forms" section reads:
    It is community consensus not to provide entries for Modern English possessive forms which are formed by adding the enclitics ’s or , and which are otherwise not idiomatic (with the single exception of the pronoun one’s). However, they are welcome as emboldened but unlinked words in inflection lines. Pronunciation transcriptions for possessive forms of words, if necessary, can be given in the pronunciation sections of the words’ entries.EXPLANATION VOTE

  2.   Support On reflection could we add a link to Wiktionary:About English in the text above? --Bequwτ 04:44, 3 February 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    That's what it was before, but msh210 changed it to link to the vote instead. I much prefer the old version. --Yair rand 04:49, 3 February 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    My edit was revertible, of course. I changed it so readers should realize that that policy is strong (the result of a vote).​—msh210 17:38, 3 February 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
