LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender)[edit]

  • I'd like a way to compare different "gay libel" cases that have been lodged, from Oscar Wilde to Tom Cruise to Liberace to Robbie Williams. I'm considering making a category, but the category name Gay Libel Cases seems anachronistic since the word "gay" wasn't used that way in Wilde's time. I'm also expecting pushback on linking gay libel cases which involved people later outed, like Oscar Wilde and Liberace, with gay libel cases involving straight people, like Tom Cruise and Robbie Williams. What do people think would be the best wording for a category like this to avoid offense & also avoid an overly long Category name? – Markwiki (talk) 00:04, 25 May 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    • Sexuality-based defamation would probably be the most accurate, using "defamation" instead of "libel" to be inclusive of slander and false light (even though false light isn't quite considered defamation, the page is in the Defamation category, so it's close enough). – Lexid523 (talk) 18:32, 9 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Texan Spanish - the unique form of Spanish that is spoken by Tejanos in Texas; it is debated among linguists whether it is a dialect or its own language; many non-linguists and laypeople insist it a bastardization of English and Spanish
  • Understanding Computers and Cognition – a 1987 book by Terry Winograd and Fernando Flores; a great arch from philosophy of language to computer design; outlines classic language theory and shows how its language-is-to-describe-objective-reality paradigm fails to provide a useful foundation for applied artificial intelligence; then proposes an alternative perspective on language as a means of communication and coordination among social biological beings "being in the world", based on works of Gadamer, Maturana and Heidegger; results in an outline of computer software design that will support such real-life communication

  • vocal placement - refers to how one positions their voice resonance within their body. Mastering this can help someone sound more like a native speaker of a given language. Most pages on the internet only mention the vocal placement for English. It'd be nice if Wikipedia covered the subject both for English and for other languages.
  • vocalization (linguistics) – a phonological process in which a sound, often labial or lateral, is replaced with a glide or vowel

  • Animated Armor - Armor that has been brought to life by a supernatural force. Sometimes the Armor is possessed by the will of its owner, usually a ghost or spirit of a knight that once wore the armor. Other times it may be possessed due to a magical element. The animated armor has become a stock character or image in both supernatural and fantasy genres alike. The animated armor is usually found guarding castles or mansions for the owner. Other times they become focused on carrying out a mission they had in a previous life. A key element of the armor is that while it moves and fights as a knight, upon removing the helmet nothing will be present. [23][24][25] [26]
  • Superstition in Southern Italy There are corresponding articles for superstition in various other regions (e.g. India).
