"Anglo-Saxon" to be rendered as Ænglisc
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: wodenhelm

Forgive me if this is the incorrect location, but as far as I can tell, it's the right spot for it; We at the Anglo-Saxon Wikipedia (and the other Anglo-Saxon wikiprojects) had a small discussion about the representation of our language's name in interwiki links which appear on the side of an article/page. All languages have their own native name for their own speech, but we were assigned "Anglo-Saxon". I believe that I've read somewhere that this was done to prevent our native name "Englisc" from being mixed up with "English", as they are spelled nearly the same, but we theorize that using the perfectly-acceptable alternative spelling of "Ænglisc" will resolve this. Alphabetically, "Æ" should be treated the same as "A". The existing "ang" prefix is perfectly fine however. Can this be done?
