Alphabet or Script?[edit]

I believe alphabet the more appropriate title. Wiktionary entries for each Greek letter say that they are the nth letter of the Greek alphabet (not Script). An appendix Greek scripts would perhaps be more logically retained for form comparisons between different fonts or written forms.—Saltmarshαπάντηση 07:16, 2 November 2009 (UTC)

RFD discussion for Appendix:Greek script[edit]

This page would ordinarily hold an appendix concerning Greek script, as used by Ancient Greek, Modern Greek, Phrygian, Ancient Macedonian, Bactrian, etc. Right now, it is a redirect to Appendix:Greek alphabet, an appendix dealing with the Modern Greek usage. Having this as a redirect is very misleading, in my opinion. --Yair rand 22:56, 24 May 2011 (UTC)

If you distinguish {{el}} (Greek language) from {{Grek}} (Greek script), I suppose you could make a case that they aren't identical. But I'd keep the redirect until (if?) it's replaced by something else. Seems like an entirely reasonable use of a redirect to me. Mglovesfun (talk) 23:02, 24 May 2011 (UTC)
Keep per Mglovesfun. I suggest eventually replacing that redirect by a full language-independent appendix, per Yair. --Daniel 23:20, 24 May 2011 (UTC)
Perhaps for a hardened Wiktionary veteran, there's a clear difference between Greek script and Greek alphabet, but I don't think most users would view it that way. --Mglovesfun (talk) 10:26, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

Actually, just revert the move from Greek script to Greek alphabet. This page doesn't just detail the Modern Greek alphabet, but the Greek script in total. -- Prince Kassad 11:32, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

Kept for lack of consensus and discussion. --Chicken is fun (talk) 15:53, 1 October 2013 (UTC)
