English: defined only as "taxonomic family" of .... We posit that all taxonomic names are Translingual and there is an identically defined Translingual section. DCDuring TALK 21:37, 19 April 2011 (UTC)

Delete, I get annoyed by English definitions which simply copy Translingual ones. Mglovesfun (talk) 21:40, 19 April 2011 (UTC)
Agree, delete. SemperBlotto 06:58, 21 April 2011 (UTC)
Comment. One downside of deleting this is that the English pronunciation is lost. In the case of "-aceae", the pronunciation is actually already there in the entry: /ˈeɪʃiː/. The contributor of the original English section only produced a stub section that contained only pronunciation (diff). However, this problem of lost pronunciation arises with the whole translingual approach in Wiktionary. There could be a large collapsible pronunciation subsection of the translingual section that would contain pronunciation in various languages. Alternatively, the whole translingual approach could be revised. --Dan Polansky 08:56, 21 April 2011 (UTC)
As taxonomic names have prescriptive definitions, one wonders whether they also have prescriptive pronunciations. Does anyone know? That would finesse DanP's valid point. DCDuring TALK 14:50, 21 April 2011 (UTC)
¶ Please delete. I do not see the point of keeping that English section, since the definition and usage are both identical.
¶ The pronunciations could simply be labeled to which dialect of what language that they belong to within the Translingual section. --Pilcrow 20:06, 21 April 2011 (UTC)
A pronunciation section rendered invisible by default under {{rel-top}} or equivalent show/hide would be an adequate solution if there be no prescribed pronunciation. DCDuring TALK 00:43, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
