Is there a reason why Peninsular is lower case? I'd move it, but I just want to make sure there's some reason that it's peninsular. TC01 01:58, 15 December 2009 (UTC)

I'm taking no response as "no, there are no reasons"... so I'll move it. TC01 16:39, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

I was more disturbed by the "r" on the end, which doesn't appear in The New Discworld Companion or The Discworld Mapp. Can anyone find the original text quickly? --Old Dickens 19:57, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

No, but that is how peninsular is spelt - whether capitalised or not. I presume TP meant that, as opposed to using it as a name. A geographical location actually called Peninsula? That'd be like calling them the Carrack Mountans - surely it's an error that has been missed in editorials and then carried on (much like the fly specks that caused nascent war) to ensure continuity? --Knmatt 20:23, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

...(Edit Conflict there). I found it and it's "peninsular" (Corgi PB p34), lower case, with the "r". Does this mean that it's likely called just "Orohai" and it happens to be peninsular? Also, it's mentioned in a translation of some Trob; there's no suggestion that it's in Trob. The mapp shows it on the main continent forming the rimward side of the Gulf of Brindisi. --Old Dickens 20:27, 18 December 2009 (UTC)
