Redirects

The redirects you're creating are bizarre. Care to explain "Arm of Dawn" and "Bath"? --Potsk (talk) 12:11, 16 November 2019 (UTC)

  • They are possible misspellings that people may look for. I am British, and in the standard British English pronunciation, "Dawn" and "Dorne" are pronounced the same, and "Bath" and "Barth" are pronounced the same. See wikipedia:Rhoticity_in_English. I am familiar with the name Barth: when I was a boy, a Dr.Barth was our family doctor. I was following Wikipedia practice: Wikipedia has many redirects and disambiguation links between words or names which are pronounced the same or similarly but spelled differently. I am sorry if I have caused any misunderstanding. Anthony Appleyard (talk) 23:24, 16 November 2019 (UTC)
    • This is a wiki about a series of books. People won't spell "Dorne" as "Dawn" after having read the word in a book. --Potsk (talk) 03:18, 17 November 2019 (UTC)
  • Thanks. Sorry. I realize. Anthony Appleyard (talk) 06:06, 17 November 2019 (UTC)
