greenland wolf spider[edit]

Absolutely no results for the exact phrase "Greenland wolf spider" in Google or on Books, Groups, or Scholar. Neither of the two given references appears to use the term "Greenland wolf spider". Equinox 18:45, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

For all your foul-tempered blustering (yes, I saw your original response to this), the fact remains that the phrase cannot be found anywhere on the Internet. Or prove me wrong by quoting the exact sentence that uses the phrase "Greenland wolf spider". Equinox 19:09, 8 May 2009 (UTC)
This should be deleted, we aren't here to conjecture or proscribe, and there is no use of this as a phrase. —This unsigned comment was added by Conrad.Irwin (talkcontribs).
Heh, you guys beat me to it; what Equinox and Conrad said. 50 Xylophone Players talk 19:17, 8 May 2009 (UTC)
Do we speedy-delete entries without even Web use? We should. DCDuring TALK 19:21, 8 May 2009 (UTC)
That could probably safely be made a "rule", since if we need citations spanning a year there is basically no way there won't be anything on the Web. (People talk online about what they've read in the papers, and half of the neologisms are widespread online before the media pick them up.) Equinox 00:19, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
I wouldn't recommend it as a "rule". There are still Latin words and obsolete words that I do not find on the internet but which I can find in other reference works. --EncycloPetey 21:03, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
To the extent it might become a rule, it would have to be limited to multi-word English terms, though this would bias us against undocumented idioms. We just could use some way of accelerating the handling of entries with very low probability of meeting WT:CFI. It afford a safe harbor for patrollers. DCDuring TALK 21:33, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
You guys should really read this article it would make you better editors and administrators: Don't be a dick. WritersCramp 19:26, 8 May 2009 (UTC)
Read WT:CFI. DCDuring TALK 19:34, 8 May 2009 (UTC)
Soooo do you want to insult us a bit more for not accepting your made-up word for which you can't find any evidence, or do you want to find some evidence? Equinox 21:28, 8 May 2009 (UTC)
Canadian Arachnology says "Family common name: wolf spiders; Genus common name: thinlegged wolf spiders; Species common name: none." The Register (UK) Armoured arctic arachnids, the big-game hunter's dream has "Høye has spent ten years studying the flesh-eating "wolf" spider Pardosa glacialis which lives in Greenland, north of the Arctic circle."

Delete - nobrainer. SemperBlotto 21:33, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Hello, I got in touch with Jens Böcher < JJBocher@snm.ku.dk > he makes the following recommendation:

:In agreement with the Danish spider specialist Søren Toft, I recommend that you use the name: 'arctic wolf spider' for Pardosa glacialis. Sincerely yours Jens Böcher Zoological Museum Copenhagen

So will everyone agree to the use of "Arctic wolf spider" ?? WritersCramp 14:41, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

I only found one jocular use of that term in our usual on-line sources of attestation. Are there print sources that you could refer us to? What is the Danish name? It might be easier to attest to a Danish or other vernacular name and include links to Wikispecies etc and a mention of the proposed English vernacular name(s). Thus, when, as, and if they come into use, the Danish entry could be the basis for the English entry(ies). DCDuring TALK 15:19, 15 May 2009 (UTC)
Hi, if you require more information, I would suggest sending him an email. I have done enough -:) WritersCramp 15:53, 15 May 2009 (UTC)
