Since when are people not organisms ? GerardM 11:37, 7 September 2006 (CEST)

They are. Why do you ask?
Maybe because there seems to be too many definitions (for the same thing) at the moment. One of them speaks about individuals—does this imply people?
The Finnish word "väestö" refers only to a human population. That's why at least two DMs are needed. Perhaps the English "population" shouldn't be associated with both of them since they can be connected with a relation. --Mikalaari 11:48, 7 September 2006 (CEST)

See also WiktionaryZ:Bewohner having currently two DMs. If the wider on "… certain area … as a whole" can correctly be extended to include "quarter", "house", "storey, flat, appartment, room" (and on very rare occasions to not completely exclude an implied "humans with their pet animals") → then German language would not need an extra DM here. -- Purodha Blissenbach 12:19, 7 September 2006 (CEST)

Those two DMs are essentially the same. I added the Finnish and Estonian words to the latter as translations. The other DM with a shorter description should be removed. --Mikalaari 12:48, 7 September 2006 (CEST)
I agree with the need for merging, from a French point of view. Kipcool 11:11, 12 September 2006 (CEST)
