Who is this guy?--Ioshus (disp) 15:08, 12 Ianuarii 2007 (UTC)

Hmm, well the English wikipedia tends to be a lot nastier about things like this than we are, but I see even they haven't nominated this for deletion, just marked it as sourceless. I am no good at judging who is "notable" enough for wikipedia, but he does get a number of google hits. --Iustinus 15:17, 12 Ianuarii 2007 (UTC)
I have created Vicipaedia:Gravitas to discuss relevance. --Rolandus 17:08, 12 Ianuarii 2007 (UTC)

Suggested Corrections[fontem recensere]

Vcelloho: since this article is short, and I don't want to step on your toes, I'm going to suggest some changes here on the talk page instead of making them myself.

You will definitely find that people are nicer, if you do this...--Ioshus (disp) 06:42, 14 Ianuarii 2007 (UTC)
  • Magister should probably be professor: even though magister is a more classical word, to many it might suggest a lower level "teacher."
  • Saecli, while technically OK, should probably be spelled out the long way, saeculi. Better yet, you could link it: [[saeculum 14|saeculi 14]] (though, from the english version of the page, I assume you meant XIX "19", not XIV "14"). Please note that we generally discourage the use of Roman Numerals here (see Vicipaedia:Numeri Romani and links listed there), but many make an exception for the names of centuries.
  • Assuming Amherstum is the proper Latin form (you might want to research it), "in Amherst" would be Amhersti (the locative case). But, despite what I have written elsewhere, I think it turns out that verbs of inhabiting normally take an accusative, so Amherstum habitat.

Hope this helps! Good luck with the article. --Iustinus 18:09, 13 Ianuarii 2007 (UTC)
