What is etymology?[edit]

Hello. I am contacting you because of a discussion about etymology on another website, Final Fantasy Fandom. That wiki gives a definition of etymology followed by a link to Wikipedia etymology page (their page here), and then features 2700 etymologies (list here), almost all of them being similar to these three:

  • Etymology of absolute zero: Absolute zero is the coldest possible temperature. More formally, it is the temperature at which entropy reaches its minimum value.
  • Etymology of fire: Fire is the rapid oxidation of a material in the exothermic chemical process of combustion, releasing heat, light, and various reaction products.
  • Etymology of Shiva: Shiva (also spelled Śiva) is a Hindu god. The Hindu Shiva once saved the world by consuming poison, giving him blue skin around the area of the neck and throat. [etc. etc.]

Are these three examples etymologies, or not? Since you are an active member of Wikipedia Linguistics Project and Wikipedia Etymology Task Force, your opinion could solve the discussion (if you prefer to avoid any involvement, just write it, I will understand). Thank you in advance for your time and attention. --Abacos (talk) 11:03, 25 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Templates for Iliad/Odyssey[edit]

Just to alert you that the templates Template:Iliad and Template:Odyssey always seem to link to the English texts, even when the second parameter is gr or el for the Greek texts (as per the documentation). E.g. Iliad 2.615-637 ({{Iliad|el|2|615|637|shortref}}) and Odyssey 1.169-173 ({{Odyssey|el|1|169|173|shortref}}). — (talk) 15:40, 13 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Easy fix. Should be working now. — Eru·tuon 15:45, 13 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks! I figured it might be an easy fix for you. But can I ask, why did you change the shortref of the Iliad to Homer? — (talk) 08:17, 14 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'm not sure... that was pretty ambiguous so I fixed it. — Eru·tuon 20:42, 14 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
