Sir! Having an intention to write an article concerning teaching English pronunciation, methinks, it seems to be exceedingly important to know tha authors of the most popular SBs in your country. I think, these are Ann Baker "Tree or three", "Ship or sheep"; English Pronunciation in Use ; Get rid of your accent; O'Connor and Fletcher "Sounds English Am I right, sir? Is it possible to study it without a good instructor?Роман Сергеевич Сидоров (talk) 10:42, 15 April 2021 (UTC)

@Роман Сергеевич Сидоров: I'm not sure if I can help you. I don't know what "SBs" means or which country you mean by "your country", and I've never heard of any of the books you mentioned. Also, user talk pages are places to discuss specific edits. Please go to WP:RD/L for general inquiries like this. That way you're much more likely to find people who are willing to help you.

I had to give this to you eventually, didn't I? You've added so much in the way of IPA and pronunciations, especially after tags I annoying leave. /blɛs'jʉː/ ~Sıgehelmus♗(Tøk) 22:24, 28 April 2021 (UTC)


It has just crossed my mind while we're talking, do you happen to have an idea about this? –Austronesier (talk) 15:24, 12 May 2021 (UTC)

@Austronesier: Well, I have no expertise on the subject but I managed to find Jacobs' (2005) discussion of affricates on Google Books (which I tried to wrap my head around but the unusual notation gets in my way). If you can't read it I can send you a copy. Nardog (talk) 15:39, 12 May 2021 (UTC)
Yes please, that would be great! I can only see p. 111 (112+113 are not displayed). Btw, I have borrowed Kleine's Phonetik des Jiddischen (Buske, 2008) from our local campus, but that's just as frustrating as the JIPA article. –Austronesier (talk) 15:49, 12 May 2021 (UTC)

Added a film to Ben Kingsley credits[edit]

You did not mention his portrayal as Josh Waitzkins teacher in “Searching for Bobby Fischer”. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:03, 15 May 2021 (UTC)

Um, how can I help you? All I did to Ben Kingsley filmography was correct the spelling of Dalíland. The list already includes his role in Searching for Bobby Fischer. Nardog (talk) 13:59, 15 May 2021 (UTC)

Hello Nardog, I have a question about translations regarding English to Japanese. Thankyou for your time![edit]

I hope you can help me, I wanted to translate my name and other things from English to Japanese, but I'm kind of struggling, say i wanted to translate a name, (proper noun) would i do that by doing each letter of the name one by one? sorry if you do not know japanese names and translations but i thought I'd try and ask, thankyou EzeeWiki (talk) 04:03, 9 June 2021 (UTC)

What I'm up to[edit]

I'm trying to suss out whether they're a good faith contributor or UPE/COI which is why I'm non-confrontational at the moment. If they're a good faith newbie, I don't focus on notability to start without overwhelming them with rules. If they're UPE I don't want to spook them and have the run off to a new account where they can easily shop around for a willing admin. So I'm stalling while I look through deleted contributions and establish a pattern. UPE isn't my expertise so feel free to keep chiming in, I appreciate it. Wug·a·po·des 18:33, 11 June 2021 (UTC)
