Redirects

The redirects you're creating are bizarre. Care to explain "Arm of Dawn" and "Bath"? --Potsk (talk) 12:11, 16 November 2019 (UTC)

  • They are possible misspellings that people may look for. I am British, and in the standard British English pronunciation, "Dawn" and "Dorne" are pronounced the same, and "Bath" and "Barth" are pronounced the same. See wikipedia:Rhoticity_in_English. I am familiar with the name Barth: when I was a boy, a Dr.Barth was our family doctor. I was following Wikipedia practice: Wikipedia has many redirects and disambiguation links between words or names which are pronounced the same or similarly but spelled differently. I am sorry if I have caused any misunderstanding. Anthony Appleyard (talk) 23:24, 16 November 2019 (UTC)
    • This is a wiki about a series of books. People won't spell "Dorne" as "Dawn" after having read the word in a book. --Potsk (talk) 03:18, 17 November 2019 (UTC)
  • Thanks. Sorry. I realize. Anthony Appleyard (talk) 06:06, 17 November 2019 (UTC)

Pronunciation

Just so you know, David J. Peterson's conlang of High Valyrian for the show, its rules and pronunciation that he devised, (e.g.: Vhagar has a "Vh" because Valyrian doesn't have "F"; there is no "th" in HV when we know that's not true because of many Valyrian names containing "th") is occasionally interesting but nevertheless not canon for the books. See also Pronunciation guide, hope that helps! --Mindset (talk) 15:47, 27 May 2020 (UTC)

Artisan redirect

Hello,

Why did you create a redirect for "artisan" to the Smith of the Seven ? Septon Meribald associates different names for the Smith (the Farmer, the Fisherman, the Carpenter, the Cobbler, or the Cobbler Above),[1] but the word artisan is not one of them. Did I miss something here ? Thomaerys Velaryon (talk) 16:50, 14 July 2020 (UTC)

  • The word "artisan" seems to have a meaning reasonably close to those those various names for the Smith. I seem to remember coming across the name Artisan somewhere for the Smith. Sorry. Anthony Appleyard (talk) 14:55, 18 July 2020 (UTC)

Quork

Okay... we definitely do not need an article about the sound a raven makes. --Potsk (talk) 08:16, 19 January 2021 (UTC)
