Links[edit]

I just went through and fixed the links that were leading to a soft redirect page, only to find that the second half of them are now broken, as someone had gone through and moved the first half of the book to the more appropriately named pages Moby-Dick, but left the second half at Moby_Dick ! I do not know how to move pages, but this should be done rather then going back and changing back the second half of the links to the inappropriately named pages.

I moved the rest of the pages with WikilinkMoveTable and converted the old pages to soft redirects with Pathosbot. Links to soft redirects will be automatically corrected by TalBot. —{admin} Pathoschild 02:50:03, 11 April 2007 (UTC)
Thanks. It'd be a few days yet before I would have enough time to get around to finishing this little project.  :) —Zhaladshar (Talk) 03:11, 11 April 2007 (UTC)

The Table of Contents ought to show the titles of the chapters. 69.178.122.114 18:18, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

Etymology and Extracts[edit]

According to [1], the Etymology and Extracts should be split into different chapters and placed at the beginning of the novel. They are currently in the Epilogue.

Also, the same edition has a Hebrew word for "whale" — "חן" that is not in this edition, nor in the Gutenberg ones. The Bantam Classics edition [2], as seen in the "Look Inside" feature of Amazon, lists it as "הז" which is visually similar. I cannot confirm the relationship of neither of these words to 'Whale'. --Salty-horse (talk) 17:19, 15 October 2008 (UTC)

I checked another modern English edition and it has the word "תר", which, one more, has no relation to 'Whale'. --Salty-horse (talk) 14:06, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
