Category talk:Pronunciations wildly different across the pond

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

"English xenophones" maybe? I can't think of a term that describes this phenomenon (allophone and heterophone are certainly wrong). --EncycloPetey 05:01, 15 November 2006 (UTC)

Suggest this[edit]

  • How about Pronunciations differing between Template:W2 and Template:W2. Ha! How parochial. Why break tools like that one? NIMBY syndrome?
Thus try, 'Pronunciations differing between w:Commonwealth English and w:North American English' and you type the pipetricks. Regards, // FrankB 23:47, 7 December 2006 (UTC)
  • "Category:Major pondian pronunciation differences"?—msh210 18:27, 19 September 2007 (UTC)

Category:Pronunciations wildly different across the pond[edit]

I'd have deleted this on sight, but for two reasons. 1) It says 'placeholder category for...' and 2) MglovesfunBot is busy right now to orphan it. Seems like an experiment from 2006 that is not only no longer relevant, it's bad. Mglovesfun (talk) 15:40, 29 May 2010 (UTC)

Ooh, go ahead and delete this. It might qualify for an appendix, at most, but definitely not a category! -- Liliana 17:06, 16 September 2011 (UTC)
Weak delete as very ill-defined slash subjective; otherwise move (terrible name).​—msh210 (talk) 19:22, 2 November 2011 (UTC)
Deleted, contents kept at Appendix:English words with pronunciations wildly different across the pond (feel free to move that page). - -sche (discuss) 19:35, 16 February 2012 (UTC)
