Does anyone know why this is considered to be a French word? It is derived from Ned Ludd from whom the Luddite social movement began around 1812.--Fernkes 21:02, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

Actually, I now see that this should be redirected to Luddite if anyone can do that. --Fernkes 21:04, 25 January 2011 (UTC)
Redirected to Luddite--Fernkes 20:12, 26 January 2011 (UTC)
Luddite is an English word, and we have that entry. According to this entry, though, luddite, lowercase, is a French word. If you doubt that, please raise the issue at Wiktionary:Requests for verification — but please don't convert this entry to a redirect without raising the issue there. Thanks!​—msh210 (talk) 20:17, 26 January 2011 (UTC)
Okay, sorry. I'll take your word for it.--Fernkes 01:42, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
