Issue 982: Spelling of The Falls of Bracklinn

Falls of Bracklinn (Dance)
Jacmel Dent
Assigned to

The spelling of the name of the dance is incorrect on your database. It should be The Falls of Bracklinn - with two 'n’s at the end of the word. In your database it has only one ‘n’ and dancing colleagues have told me they cannot find it on My Strathspey, no doubt because of the incorrect spelling.

Ironic really, given how precise the spelling of each name of the dance has to be on your database! For instance, if one fails to put in the apostrophe for Quarries’ Jig then the dance then the search fails to pick it up.

Dear Jacmel Dent,

I do not get the point. In the database the dance IS written The Falls of Bracklinn - with two 'n’s at the end of the word! Using “The Falls of Bracklinn” or “Bracklinn” as query (cut’n’paste from your issue) exactly finds the correct entry. The last change to the dance entry has been done more than two years as well as more than three years ago, but the dance name has not been touched. Thus, if the dance could not be found by some dancing colleagues, the reason must have been that the dance’s name in the query was wrongly written.

Best wishes and happy dancing!

Still, I have added the “The” to the title, as this also present in Barry’s original description. Moreover, I added the extra information about the Falls noted down in the description.

Thanks for pointing my attention to that dance!
