German[edit]

@Kolmiel Does "Queen" really ever refer to anything else than the British one? Korn [kʰũːɘ̃n] (talk) 21:56, 25 August 2016 (UTC)

@Korn: In theory the word could be used for another queen from an English-speaking country (if there were one). But in practice: no. Do change it. I think it's justified. — I just generally tend to give less specific definitions when I'm not sure. (For, it annoys me to read that a "Kuchen" must be less than 50% cream because otherwise it's "Torte"; or that "Qualm" is necessarily thick fume swelling up from a fire because otherwise it's "Rauch"... Yes, these are common ways to distinguish the words, but it's not set in stone.) Kolmiel (talk) 22:22, 25 August 2016 (UTC)
