changed status

I revised cleanup status to No since there are many non-existent links; my understanding is that these should be linked or eliminated as part of cleanup. If that's correct, then there's more cleanup to do here.Pat Palmer 16:43, 3 April 2007 (CDT)

I've changed the status to '4' as this is basically a WP article with little change. John Stephenson 04:59, 4 April 2007 (CDT)
It's OK to have red CZ links; just not red Template: links or things pertaining to Wikipedia. John Stephenson 00:28, 14 April 2007 (CDT)

Dialect continuum, duplication of information?

Since there is a separate Dialect_continuum page which is extensive, would it be possible to shorten the section here, which seems to define what a continuum is? It seems to me that there may be considerable duplication of effort here.Pat Palmer 15:12, 8 April 2007 (CDT)

Done; just a couple of examples now. John Stephenson 23:07, 8 April 2007 (CDT)
