The following information has failed Wiktionary's deletion process.

It should not be re-entered without careful consideration.

RfD sense: "Common misspelling of "?"". Based on its keyboard position. If so, then many other keyboard pairs would merit the same treatment and would probably pass RfV based on "widespread use". Also, "a" would be a common misspelling of "A" and vice versa.

I could imagine someone finding it useful, but I imagine many things that don't exist. Would anyone think to look this up? DCDuring TALK 00:10, 31 August 2010 (UTC)

I fixed the heading. In any case, I say delete since it is actually dependent on keyboard layouts (in German, you will often see the ß instead of the question mark). There will probably be others for other keyboard layouts. -- Prince Kassad 04:59, 31 August 2010 (UTC)
Very strong delete, like DCD saying, are we gonna have s, w, q, and z as common misspellings of a? Mglovesfun (talk) 10:10, 31 August 2010 (UTC)
Strong delete per DCDuring, Mglovesfun.​—msh210 (talk) 17:11, 31 August 2010 (UTC)
I suppose there is a slight chance that a non-English speaker would see a / used as punctuation at the end of a sentence, wonder what it means, and try to look it up on Wiktionary? Probably extremely unlikely though, and the same could be said about quite a few other keyboard pairs. Delete. --Yair rand (talk) 19:17, 31 August 2010 (UTC)
