Revera? For Attic (not modern) Greek, how can that be right? Not to mention Βόλφγκανγκ. And why does Latin want such a link anyway? IacobusAmor (disputatio) 16:48, 24 Martii 2016 (UTC)

Latin and Greek being part of the same Imperial culture, yes, we do accept links to the ancient Greek wiki, why not? Many modern Latinists know Greek as well, and all are perforce plurilingual: hence some of us sometimes add bibliography items and links to websites in French, German, Russian, even English :)
On the name, however, you are 100% right! They could perfectly well use his baptismal name Theophilus, which is Greek and goes beautifully back into Greek. As to Wolfgang, it's hard to propose a satisfactory solution, because the sounds v and f could not be written precisely in classical Greek, and writing word-final -γγ looks nearly as odd as -νγκ. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 09:32, 14 Maii 2018 (UTC)
There are some words in -γγος, so maybe Ὀυολφγάγγος, though it's still pretty unwieldy. If they allowed nomina ficta it could perhaps be Λύχοδος... Lesgles (disputatio) 16:24, 15 Maii 2018 (UTC)

De cognomineRecensere

De cognomine "Mozartus" quattuor fontes citabantur, quorum duo hodie nihil praebent, duo autem dicunt compositorem ipsum hoc cognomine Latino bis vel ter per ludibrium usum esse. Registro baptismali praenomina Latina confirmante sed cognomen "Mozart", mihi videtur "Mozart" apud nos praeponendum. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 11:18, 14 Maii 2018 (UTC)

De canone Leck mich im ArschRecensere

Since "Mozart canonem in B-plano maiore verbis Theodiscis Leck mich im Arsch ('linge meum podicem') composuit" is a true fact (though B-plano for "in B-flat" may be problematic), it may well belong in the article, but not in the summary at the top (perhaps instead in a discussion of his canons, or in a paragraph on his use of indelicate diction), so it's been moved further down.

Strange thing is, I intended to delete that statement as self-evidently false, and I thought I had done so, but my guardian angel had prevented me. We live and learn. Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings ... Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 13:18, 14 Maii 2018 (UTC)
It's a happy little piece! :) IacobusAmor (disputatio) 14:35, 14 Maii 2018 (UTC)
Not to mention Mozart's interlingual Latin in the phrase lectu mihi mars. IacobusAmor (disputatio) 14:44, 14 Maii 2018 (UTC)
For those who are interested in this strange predilection of Mozart's, see en:Mozart and scatology. Lesgles (disputatio) 16:04, 15 Maii 2018 (UTC)


Certe alia laudanda compositiones in operibus Mozart maiores sunt quam hoc parvo stulto canone, compositionesque superiores magis addi hoc pagina mereant. Tamen meam stultam additio a tui accepti sunt; non intellexistis me esse Troll. Hahahae ... 2001:8003:4EA3:D400:C12:59BA:2241:2AB4 13:30, 17 Maii 2018 (UTC)

Hac disputatione curiosius perlecta, videbis te iam diu recognitum, surrume :) Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 09:18, 18 Maii 2018 (UTC)

Recognōvistis me? Arte perturbandi gaudebam quo facilius discerem latinam. Ludendi gratia in Vikipædia Latina veni. Pulchris additionibus meis deletis, relinquam Vicipædiam. Valete! Nunc in Vicipædia “Bella Stellaria” (Wookiepedia) obturbatum ire paro, additionesque horrendas terribiles nefarias ibi scribam, delectabileque factu. Mwahaha Mwaahaha. Mwahahahahaahae. --128.250.0.195 10:14, 21 Maii 2018 (UTC)

Sadly, today's editsRecensere

Sadly, today's edits have probably taken the text below the 16,000-character cutoff and have thereby cost Vicipaedia a hundredth of a point in the 10,000-word ranking at Meta. IacobusAmor (disputatio) 14:48, 14 Maii 2018 (UTC)

We're still OK, if Anne's clever utility is still giving the right results. It says 16,663.
But we do what we can, you know. We want to provide a readable, useful article. So we don't want dead external links; we don't want excessively numerous links justifying a simple fact; we don't want bibliographic references whose relevance is far to seek; etc. Sometimes part of the task of improving a page is cleaning it up, and that sometimes has to mean deleting the unnecessary before adding the necessary. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 11:23, 15 Maii 2018 (UTC)
Very well put, indeed! Neander (disputatio) 11:43, 15 Maii 2018 (UTC)
Indeed, and in cleaning it up, I'd removed some temporarily gratuitous redlinks myself. IacobusAmor (disputatio) 12:27, 15 Maii 2018 (UTC)
The current raw score is reported to be 15,194, which times 1.07 equals 16,258. The reason the character count now stands above 16,000 is that after I'd posted the sad comment above, Lesgles added the necessary characters. Anne's utility is set for the 1000-article list, which weights Latin by a factor of 1.10; the 10,000-article list, however, uses a factor of 1.07. At the time I posted my comment, the count was being reported as 14,676, which times 1.07 equaled 15,703. IacobusAmor (disputatio) 12:12, 15 Maii 2018 (UTC)
My utility? I believe it was UV who wrote the gadget that gives you the weighted size of an article when you're editing. I have various programs that can do this but you have to run them from a command line at your terminal, not inside VP itself. Credit where it's due, folks! A. Mahoney (disputatio) 14:42, 15 Maii 2018 (UTC)
Thanks and apologies to UV! Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 16:07, 15 Maii 2018 (UTC)

I versus JRecensere

The birth certificate has examples of J, which Vicipaedia had been transcribing as J, but 184.58.134.133 recently changed them all to I. What to do? IacobusAmor (disputatio) 11:55, 5 Aprilis 2019 (UTC)

Revertere ad "Wolfgangus Amadeus Mozart".
