{DMA|Needs to be combined with DefinedMeaning:chemical element (1137)}

I propose to change the definition to "Chemical element" and to maintain the detailed definitions in Expression:chemical element. The expression "element" has several meanings, "chemical element" is only one of them, see w:element. --Ortografix 12:42, 5 November 2006 (CET)

As the word "element" is used as such it is correct usage. GerardM 13:08, 5 November 2006 (CET)
I did not doubt that it is correct. The question is if "chemical element" should be added as identical meaning in each language in that this expression exists or if the definition should refer to Expression:chemical element, e.g. "see chemical element". The latter would spare the effort to duplicate the definitions. --Ortografix 19:21, 5 November 2006 (CET)
If you look on Wikipedia, you can see that most of the languages listed have it written as "chemical element" and "element". -Rappo 19:31, 5 November 2006 (CET)
It seems to be that by the guidelines, we should merge the DMs as we have precise synonyms here (the other meanings of "element" should be under other DM-s). The difference betwen the two expression concerns only The only question is which DM we should maintain. And I think it is better to add the expressions here to the DM:chemical element (1137) because then the content can be got from the title.

I agree: we should maintain "chemical element" because it is unambiguous and add the synonyms there. If "element" is added as synonym to "chemical element" the definition of the latter appears automatically in Expression:element, right? --Ortografix 20:27, 5 November 2006 (CET)
