Talk:"Man" pronounced as "m'n"

[edit] Last names

I think that including Rondleman and Bob Statesman is over-the-top. Last names are usually pronounced with m'n. Those last names just don't fit the gag. —BazookaJoe 22:25, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

Well, Rondleman and Statesman aren't words you see every day. Rondleman might not fit, as it is a name, but Statesman isn't an actual name, and would be more commonly pronounced with the "man" pronounced like the regular word, if that mede any sense. Dr. Clash 22:30, 28 February 2007 (UTC)
Nevertheless, Statesman still functions as a name. I don't think I would ever hear it pronounced "Bob States-man" in verbal American English. —BazookaJoe 22:41, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

In any case, Cableman should stay. It's usually cable-man when I hear it. Dr. Clash 22:44, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

  • It's just an alternate pronunciation of man when used as a suffix. Awexome

Well, what about Crack Stuntman, does he follow Cable man logic since Stunt Man is a 'common term.' Flashfight 04:37, 23 November 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Capitalizing

  • Should we capitalize "pronounced as"? Most (probably all) of our articles are capitalized, why should this one be left out? --TheYellowDart(t/c) 23:43, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Delete?

er, why in the HE** does this page exist?!!! i mean, who cares if man is m'n? sure, it's a running gag, but who cares? I mean, wtf? If i knew how to delete pages, i would delete this 1 instantly. STUPID-PAGE DEUCE!!!!! bell out. Im a bell 02:03, 8 March 2007 (UTC)

  • oh, and I reached this page randomly Im a bell 02:05, 8 March 2007 (UTC)
  • seriously, WHO WOULD VISIT THIS PAGE?! Im a bell 02:05, 8 March 2007 (UTC)
There's no reason to yell. Generally, running gags get pages if they're moderately interesting and appear in several toons. M'n has these qualities and is worthy of it's own page, so you don't have to repeatedly bash it with comments like that. -Brightstar Shiner 02:27, 8 March 2007 (UTC)
O_O ahem... sorry Im a bell 00:04, 10 March 2007 (UTC)
It's okay. We just don't like it when people do that sort of thing. No problem, really. ^_^ -Brightstar Shiner 00:06, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

Nevertheless, this IS a pointless page. Prouncing m-a-n with an unstressed a in compound words ending with those letters is normal. Why are we commenting on it?

So you would say "Superm'n" as opposed to "Superman"? And this is normal to you? --DorianGray 18:32, 9 April 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, Um, DorianGrey, have you ever been to Baltimore? Because I live there, and that is how we talk: Pronouncing "man" as "m'n". And it is an unneccecary page. --Jangles5150 (words+helps) 18:38, 9 April 2007 (UTC)
While I don't agree with your methods, I do agree this page is unnecessary, I have a feeling it's a part of Hometsar's speech impediment. Delete. --TotalSpaceshipGirl3 13:37, 21 April 2007 (UTC)
Dorian, Superman" isn't a good example as it has not occurred in H*R. TSSG, this is not likely to be both part of Homestar's speech impediment AND Strong Bad's speech. And I am decidedly ambivolent here. It could stayt or go as far as I am concerned. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 15:06, 21 April 2007 (UTC)
Well, let's take a look at this page shall we. Hmmm, 7 appearances sounds good. And for why do all of you except a few of you think this should be deleted? No Dolort! User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man

Italic text

(Italic text? What?) I say keep it. There's enough appearances for m'n to garner its own page, in my opinion. Heck, The Cloitsterizer had only shown up two or three times when its page was made, and we kept it...Voting on deleting or not reminds me of the old STUFF page. ^-^ --Kiwi 17:24, 16 May 2006 (UTC)
Yeah, we totally decided to keep this 10 days ago. --DorianGray 21:27, 16 May 2007 (UTC)

I don't think this needs to be deleted, but I don't know if this is an adequate description of the subject. "M'n" doesn't really seem to carry the meaning. There are plenty of words that use the unstressed pronunciation of man, like salesman, postman, fireman, etc. If we're really going to have this page, I'd suggest giving it a more meaningful title, or at least a description that more accurately conveys the concept to someone who isn't familiar with the specific English dialect being referenced.--Big Dog 04:45, 23 November 2007 (UTC)
