Chamorro has no C anywhere in its alphabet, so how does this work? It also uses {{ch-noun}} which appears to be an exact duplicate of {{en-noun}}, so it tries to add gender (which Chamorro does not have) and construct the plural by adding -s (which does not work in Chamorro, either). -- Prince Kassad 12:35, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

What's the reason for not deleting this on sight? That's the only thing I can't figure out. Mglovesfun (talk) 13:04, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

RFV failed, entry deleted. But for the record, {{en-noun}} doesn't add gender, because English doesn't have gender, either. As I'm sure you must know. :-)   —RuakhTALK 01:50, 13 September 2010 (UTC)

  • Comment I was the one who added the word to Wiktionary, and created the pages et al. I'm sorry for messing up with the templates, but the word was taken off Diccionario español-chamorro, made by a priest who lived in Guam in 1890s or so. Diego Grez 20:56, 13 September 2010 (UTC)
  • Thanks. Don't worry about the templates; it's not like you added them to fifty billion pages or something. :-)   According to your link, that dictionary is from 1865; it seems quite possible to me that the orthography was different and/or less fixed at that time. —RuakhTALK 21:16, 13 September 2010 (UTC)
