Keep, Perfectly valid term, it's a series in the kingdom of life of bees.Lucifer 12:34, 7 December 2011 (UTC)

  • I've replaced it with a proper taxonomic entry. SemperBlotto 16:35, 7 December 2011 (UTC)
  • Striking. Thanks, SemperBlotto! —RuakhTALK 16:53, 7 December 2011 (UTC)
    Luciferwildcat wasn't that wrong, all you really needed to do was changes ==English== to ==Translingual==. Mglovesfun (talk) 16:54, 7 December 2011 (UTC)
    Well it all worked out in the end, and now I know (correct me if this assumption is wrong) that all the scientific names from Kingdom and Phylum to Chordata and Species are all translingual?Lucifer 21:07, 8 December 2011 (UTC)
  • The taxonomic names (e.g. Homo sapiens) are all Translingual, the taxons themselves (e.g. species) are all English. SemperBlotto 12:08, 9 December 2011 (UTC)
    It is misleading. Homo sapiens is a translingual term and an English noun pronounced /ˌhoʊ.moʊ ˈseɪ.pi.ənz/. In French, for example, it is a masculin noun pronounced /o.mo sa.pjɛ̃s/. — TAKASUGI Shinji (talk) 01:47, 29 December 2011 (UTC)
