Bulgarian: Paulette. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 20:06, 13 April 2015 (UTC)[reply]

It's correct. --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 02:52, 14 April 2015 (UTC)[reply]
@Atitarev I wasn't asking whether it is correct, but whether it can be cited. I have almost no knowledge of Bulgarian, so I request your help in finding three cites for this entry. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 19:34, 14 April 2015 (UTC)[reply]
I was hoping you would drop the RFV, if someone confirms it's a correct term. I'm not that keen to keep translations of foreign names into other languages to start looking for citations. On the term itself, in Russian, at least, the name could be Russified a bit and turn into "Полетта" in literature (not necessarily) but if it's an official person, the transliteration would be normally closer to the original. If you know a famous person named Paulette or person from a famous book, you could search for a translation into languages, you added RFV for. --Anatoli T.

@Atitarev It shouldn't be too hard to find the cites on Google Books and link them here if this really is correct. The issue is that we have users that claim something is "correct" even when it cannot be cited literally anywhere, and that's poor lexicography. The only way to deal with that is to go through the RFV process to demonstrate that a word actually passes CFI. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 06:53, 20 April 2015 (UTC)[reply]
I see your point but it IS hard to find citations for this particular term. Bulgarian Полет is mixed with the Russian полёт (poljót), normally spelled "полет" in a running Russian text and as I said, I am not that keen to keep this entry. --Anatoli T.
