Part of speech[edit]

What should the part of speech heading of this entry be? Should it be ===Cardinal number=== or ===Idiom=== or something else? --Connel MacKenzie T C 19:58, 4 May 2006 (UTC)

That's a great question! In Japanese, the word 六つ (muttsu) is categorized as a 名詞 (meishi), i.e. a noun. The existing WT:AJ#Romaji entries guideline says to categorize such Japanese entries under "Romaji", the term for their transliteration. A current proposal, however, is to classify them with the POS that corresponds to the word that they transcribe. (See Wiktionary talk:About Japanese#Rōmaji entry format.) There's little activity on that proposal, so we should probably just change it. If we do stop classifying Japanese entries by their transliteration type, the POS heading should be "===Noun===" and the category should be [[Category:Japanese nouns|むっつ]].
