I see you are doing a great job here. Thanks. A small suggestion though. Once a word has been fixed to acceptable levels, strike it like this word heading i.e. <word "strike"> xxx <word "/strike"> at the rfc page. It just helps to see which words still need attention. If you knew how to strike, please forgive me. It took me ages to learn. Best wishes. Andrew massyn 09:27, 20 August 2006 (UTC)


What was the reason for this edit? The material has now been restored. Widsith 17:32, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

It was very wordy. Now that I look back at it, I guess I deleted a bit too much. Sorry about that. Foxjwill 18:56, 10 September 2006 (UTC)

Using ʌ vs ə[edit]

I've noticed that you've used the symbol ʌ in the pronunciation of words like adorably. This is not quite correct. The ʌ sound apopears in words like cup and but, but the sound in adorably is ə. My guess is that you are an American (like myself) and so the sounds are blurred a bit. The difference is where the sound is made in the mouth. Most English speakers pronounce cup toward the back of the mouth (ʌ), not in the front of the mouth (ə). --EncycloPetey 17:54, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

Related terms[edit]

Hi there. The ====Related terms==== section is for words related to the word itself, not to its meaning. So jerks, jerking, jerkily, jerk off are related to jerk - but acceleration isn't - it goes in ====See also====. Cheers SemperBlotto 08:29, 21 February 2007 (UTC)


Why are you emptying this category? There is no reason for that. Many notions cannot be clearly associated to only one branch of mathematics. Moreover, your changes to bijective make the first meaning incomprehensible because you deleted the information that this is a property a function may or may not have. A set cannot be injective. In addition, it's debatable whether elementary properties of functions belong to the area of "set theory". -- Gauss 20:00, 7 July 2008 (UTC)
