Bulgarian Incorrect Quots
"„…“ is often incorrectly replaced by "…" or “…”" Who is using these "incorrectly", Bulgarian speakers? If so I don't think it makes much sense to call them "incorrect" and rather they should be listed as an alternative (or not mentioned, like the rest of the entries) 18.104.22.168 (talk) 10:23, 18 October 2019 (UTC)
- You can remove this type of personal opinion yourself. I've done it for the Bulgaria entry. If you want to remove the notes completely, go ahead. Bazza (talk) 12:21, 18 October 2019 (UTC)
Merits of elevated and in-line marks
In the section describing the parallel development of English-style elevated marks and French-style in-line marks, there are a few statements (particularly in the captions beneath the images in the margin) that sound subjectively biased towards in-line marks; for instance, the article states that elevated marks "clash" with apostrophes while in-line marks are "clearly distinguishable" from commas, breath marks, decimal separators, etc. For it to be objective, I feel like the section ought to also present possible benefits to using elevated marks, and drop the argumentative language. (Also, if we're going to argue that French marks are better because they're distinct from Armenian and Greek symbols and decimal points [which wouldn't be next to an elevated mark anyhow], shouldn't we at least mention angle brackets and the greater-than/less-than signs? But maybe that's nit-picking.) Etymographer (talk) 04:40, 13 September 2020 (UTC)
