Interwiki fixesEdit

My multi-cultural identity means that I often find myself fixing correspondences between similar concepts in different languages. Below are groups of easily confused items that I've tried to fix:

  • posthumous (Q1395509) - three-way merge of two European and one East Asian concepts, all referring to the act of conferring honour after someone's death
