I ask the deletion, because I copied the content to Brazilian Portuguese like pages under English varieties is done. --Pedro 00:32, 26 Jun 2004 (UTC)

  • Redirect, do not delete. Merge and delete destroys page history we are legally required to keep. -- Cyrius| 06:15, 26 Jun 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. It has info not in Brazilian Portuguese, and the info should be either at Portuguese language or in a separate article (which is how it is right now). I believe it should be pruned from Brazilian Portuguese instead. cesarb 19:54, 26 Jun 2004 (UTC)
  • We have an article on Differences between British and American English (though I can't find the exact title right now). Keep. RickK 21:18, Jun 26, 2004 (UTC)
    • Differences blah blah is unciclopedic, I never saw an Enciplopedia artic about differences between dialects, it doesn't make sense, it makes sense in the dialect article and compare it to the "main" dialect what we call pattern. It makes in Brazilian Portuguese, to contrast to the origin dialects. And that article was and still is full of nonsence! I'm trying to correct it. And in Brazil there are two big dialects, influencing the rest of Brazil. The Rio's and São Paulo's, that are very different, because some particularities of Rio are seen has "regionalism". I'll add that in Brazilian Portuguese. For me it doesn't really make sense a "differences" article cause for me it's superfulous and trying to find differences and deceiving the public. I believe redirect is best. But you decide it. -Pedro 23:33, 26 Jun 2004 (UTC)
    • (Neutral) articles which compare languages even have their own category! Nikola 06:34, 27 Jun 2004 (UTC)
      • they are not two languages to be compared. And that category has only 3 items and only 1 article that is a language comparison. We cannot have the same info in several different articles (when these will be completed): Brazilian Portuguese Portuguese dialects Portuguese language etc. -Pedro 12:29, 28 Jun 2004 (UTC)
        • There's also Portuguese personal pronouns. You don't have to stuff everything in a single article, you know. Articles tend to grow and them split into other articles, and trying to put everything back in a single article will either lose things or get too big. cesarb 01:02, 29 Jun 2004 (UTC)
          • yes, there is, and it is very good to learn (even to speakers), even if it is not wikified. But that is reasonable for an encyclopedia article, maybe because of its extremely difficulty. The Brazilian Portuguese is all about that "differences" to make sense has an article, cause we are dealing with dialects here, and not languages, so we have not much to talk. And the rest of the info there is for Portuguese dialects, even if I'll not use that, because of many incorrections. -Pedro 13:00, 29 Jun 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete Redirect. This should be under Brazilian Portuguese. — Chameleon 16:18, 27 Jun 2004 (UTC)
    • As Cyrius said, it shouldn't be deleted, it should in the worst case be emptied and turned into a redirect. It has relevant history which must be kept. cesarb 00:11, 29 Jun 2004 (UTC)
    • Keep - this sort of information is interesting to linguists and language learners. Secretlondon 22:52, 30 Jun 2004 (UTC)
