Hello,

A Image:Clacket.png is a board used in film making. The Producer has the information of the scene number and time of filming. While filming they shoot with a camera without sound. Sound is recorded separately. They put the clacket at the start and click the board in front of the camera. This helps the Editor start both the shots and the sound together to help him get the pictures and the sound sequence together. Basically it is a board that helps the film-crew keep the sound and pictures together.--Nasib Bitar 01:57, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

You are right, most probably the word I used is originally French I think the word you used is more accurate. Many thanks for your information.--Nasib Bitar 09:20, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

  1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
  2. This user account must have more than 75 edits on any single Wikimedia project before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2012 Contest Eligibility tool.
  3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.

Ƹ[edit]

You said "Ƹ" «was never an IPA symbol» yet at en:Ƹ it is stated that it «was a non standard International Phonetic Alphabet for voiced pharyngeal fricative proposed in the Principles of 1949,[1] but now the phonetic symbol officially used is [ʕ]. It was used in the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s, for example by John Rupert Firth and Terence Frederick Mitchell, or in the 1980s by Martin Hinds and El-Said Badawi.» (source: 1. ISBN 0-226-68535-7: p.209). When I saw your edit I immediately thought I’d make a mistake (which is likely since I’ve been dissiminating hundreds of IPA symbol images in the past days), but then after looking up it seems that’s the ball is on your half. -- Tuválkin 18:48, 22 April 2019 (UTC)

@Tuválkin: That Wikipedia article was full of misinterpretations. What Pullum & Ladusaw (1996: 209) actually said was: "Perhaps intended to be Turned Three, unofficially suggested by the IPA (Principles, 19)." Unofficially suggested by the IPA was not <ƹ> but <↋>. Indeed, you can see <↋> being mentioned as having been proposed—but not by the IPA; the IPA was just mentioning it as having been proposed (by others)—to replace <ʕ> in the 1949 Principles of the IPA, p. 19. (And even if it was <ƹ> that was proposed, I wouldn't categorize it as a "former IPA symbol" because, again, all the IPA did was mention it as having been proposed.) Nardog (talk) 19:30, 22 April 2019 (UTC)
You need to tell all this in the en:Ƹ talk page, or even go ahead and fix it yourself, then, or else other users will make the same mistake as I did. -- Tuválkin 07:21, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
I already did. Nardog (talk) 07:38, 23 April 2019 (UTC)

I suspect this was a graphic substitution dating to before <↋> was supported by Unicode. I've run across quite a few such, and have contributed some myself. Kwamikagami (talk) 18:40, 1 August 2019 (UTC)

glad to see my images are usefull to someone--Tavin (talk) 22:18, 11 January 2020 (UTC)

Kiel Convention[edit]

Thanks for your advice. I will contact the IPA executive, and I don't imagine they will have any objection. I am glad you think the photo useful. I am trying to put as many names to faces as possible, before our collective memory fades away. You can see the names I have remembered myself at https://www.peterroach.net/the-1989-ipa-kiel-convention.html and I am asking former colleagues to join in the hunt. Peter RoachPeter (talk) 18:32, 19 April 2020 (UTC)

Derivative Images[edit]

Hi! Thank you for alerting me to my "derivative work violations." The Portrait of a Musician Candidates one is all from images on Wikipedia, which I have now added a "PD-old-100" tag to. The other two colleges are also made from pictures on Wikipedia, and all either fall under the "PD-old-100" or have had permission to reuse given because of a work by being the person who uploaded them, how do I mark this on their files? Also upon further inspection, the Ralph Asher Alpher file should be deleted, yes. Apologies for that. Aza24 (talk) 02:04, 14 May 2020 (UTC)

@Aza24: Yes, this isn't enough. Please link to the files you used to make the montages in the information panels. Nardog (talk) 02:08, 14 May 2020 (UTC)
I will do so, for the portrait one it's probably fine because those are all old paintings, correct? For the other ones some more clarity would be appreciated. Am I linking in the college files to the other files pages? Or looking for the original source? Aza24 (talk) 02:10, 14 May 2020 (UTC)
@Aza24: No, just because you used works in the public domain to make a montage doesn't mean you don't need to reveal their authors and sources. You do precisely to show that they are "old paintings".
The former. See e.g. File:Montage of Toronto 4.jpg. Nardog (talk) 02:18, 14 May 2020 (UTC)
Alright, will do so, thank you for letting me know. Aza24 (talk) 02:21, 14 May 2020 (UTC)

On another note, I noticed that you seem to know a lot about IPA. I had put IPA on [Orlando Gibbons' page] but removed it as it seemed unnecessary. Would it make sense to put it back, or is IPA usage on articles mainly for names that are "harder to pronounce" – if you will? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Aza24 (talk • contribs) 02:26, 14 May 2020‎ (UTC)

@Aza24: It's unnecessary. See w:WP:LEADPRON. "Orlando" and "Gibbons" are both common names and the pronunciation you gave is just the usual pronunciations of them. (Btw, I've also flagged that audio because AFAIK you can't claim text-to-speech audio as your own.) Nardog (talk) 02:31, 14 May 2020 (UTC)

How do I delete this?[edit]

Hi Nardog, I figured I'd ask you since you seem to know your way around Wiki commons. I uploaded a new version of the collage I had made for the Portrait of a Musician page. The old one: File:Portrait of a Musician Candidates.jpg used a portrait of the wrong person so there doesn't seem to be any need to keep it around, as it is simply factually incorrect. How would I delete this? Best - Aza24 (talk) 23:15, 17 June 2020 (UTC)

@Aza24: Shouldn't you just overwrite the old file with the new image? The new filename has a typo ("Potrait"). Nardog (talk) 23:24, 17 June 2020 (UTC)
Hmm well I was going to but the overwriting rules didn't seem to allow that. I didn't notice the typo! Do I have to contact an Admin to fix that? (I don't see an option to do so myself) Aza24 (talk) 23:32, 17 June 2020 (UTC)
@Aza24: I don't think it constitutes "substantial changes" COM:OVERWRITE designates, especially given you're the uploader and it's only a few months old. Besides, if you're going to delete the old file anyway overwriting it would practically achieve the same result with less effort. Nardog (talk) 23:35, 17 June 2020 (UTC)
Fair enough. Well in that case... how would I delete the new one? Heh... Aza24 (talk) 02:47, 18 June 2020 (UTC)
@Aza24: Overwrite the old file with the new one and then place {{duplicate|Portrait of a Musician Candidates.jpg}} on File:Potrait of a Musician Candidates.jpg. Make sure to replace the page description of the overwritten file with that of the new file before placing the tag. Nardog (talk) 03:41, 18 June 2020 (UTC)

File:Peter Ladefoged with McKinney & Longacre.png[edit]

Nardog, I took the photo in question. Ken Olson used it with my full permission in another location, but inadvertently was given credit. I am the photographer, not worried about Ken getting credit. Pete unseth (talk) 22:45, 19 July 2020 (UTC)

Pronounciation deleted[edit]

Hi, why did you reverted my pronounciation on Mid front unrounded vowel and Mid back rounded vowel? The pronounciation on both is now again wrong. —YodaMaster445 (talk) 19:46, 26 November 2020 (UTC)

@YodaMaster445: As I linked in the summaries, see COM:OVERWRITE. You aren't allowed overwrite files other people made with entirely different files.
To my ears, the current [e̞] is just fine and your [e̞] sounds too low. I find the current [o̞] too low (it even has a higher F1 than the [ɔ] sample, which is not good), but you can't just overwrite it. In addition, your samples are too short, too quiet, too noisy and too echoey. I suggest you consult w:Wikipedia:WikiProject Linguistics if you really want to improve these samples.
