Isn't it "syllabary" (lower case, spelled thus) rather than "Syllabry"? Or is this some other word? -- Paul G 09:51, 8 Mar 2004 (UTC)

How silly of me! Fixed thanks Paul. Hippietrail 12:10, 8 Mar 2004 (UTC)

Sequoyah[edit]

We don't normally have entries for specific people, even if their name is the origin of other words (a link to their article on the 'pedia normally suffices). Is this one a special case? Thryduulf 20:13, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

Keep, Otherwise we lose Hercules, Zeus, etc. We keep names, we simply do not keep collocations of names which specify certain people (e.g. Isaac Newton). Even if there is only one person who has a name, we still keep it. -Atelaes λάλει ἐμοί 20:47, 29 August 2008 (UTC)
Keep - It's also the origin of the words sequoia and Sequoia. If it is also a given name (used by other people/figures) then it has merit on those grounds as well. --EncycloPetey 23:26, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
