Change name of Tahitian language from "Reo Mā`ohi" to "reo mā’ohi"
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: hrhuittroisszwzero.dsixmkkaqh

In Names.php Tahitian language is written :
00396 'ty' => 'Reo Mā`ohi', # Tahitian

As Vitipetia use the Tahitian Academy writting system, I propose to replace it by :
00396 'ty' => 'reo mā’ohi', # Tahitian

#1 Vitipedia use the curly apostrophe and the macron :
’Ia ora na i te Vitipetia, te puta parau pa’ari ti’amā

#2 The online dictionary of the Tahitian Academy do not use capital letter : (typing "maohi" in search field)
2°) Qui est originaire de la Polynésie Française. Te reo mā'ohi = La langue parlée par les polynésiens, le tahitien.

#3 The apostrophe is straight online only for historical technical reasons ; paper edition use the curly apostrophe :

Version: unspecified
Severity: normal

I asked an active user at tywiki whether they agree with this: [[ty:Discussion utilisateur:Juster#Le_nom_de_cette_langue]]

Hi, I'm Juster. utilisateur:This, that and the other asked me if I was agree with the new name. Yes, I am.

But, I have always been disturbed with this name "reo mā’ohi".
The "reo mā’ohi" is used to discribe all the languages spoken in French Polynesia (the marquesan, the paumotu, the language from the Australes archipelago, the mangarevan, and the reo tahiti)

So, if you want to be the most exact as possible, we have to change the name " reo mā’ohi" into the name "reo tahiti"

All the articles in are written in tahitian language, not in marquesan, or paumotu, etc...

You can see at the local education ministry webpage that they use the name "reo tahiti"
Or here if you want some more explanations

Māuruuru, Thank you !
