Thanks. I was able to bring that page up to date and link this page to it.

Google bowdlerised Little Red Riding Hood. The hunter pulls Riding Hood and her grandmother out by a scarf instead of chopping the wolf open. Does that go under Fairy Tales or New Media?

I don't understand, since Google doesn't make films/stories/whatevers, it's a search engine and some other things. Whatever company did it, it goes in the medium of the adaption; Fairy Tales is more for the original stories that have been written down rather than the defined adaptations, in my experience.

Ah, I see. (That's fun!) Yeah, I'd shove that in New Media.

Wait, wouldn't 'boulderise' mean to turn someone / thing INTO a boulder? xD

Was akuma of the street fighter series Bowdlerised? i mean he wasn't changed in backstory, but Capcom Usa did attempt it, and he still kept the name.

How's this for an example?

How do you call this if it happens with subtitles? Happens a lot of time with German translations. For example, in 'Hot Fuzz', subtitles translate 'twat' as 'idiot' while the synch renders it as 'arse', I think.

Could you be more specific? What did it look like, and when was the last time you saw it?

I never thought about that, but I just always read it as "Boulder-ize"

I know right, it says how not to pronounce it (which was exactly how I was pronouncing it), but it doesn't give the correct way, so I'm just going to keep on saying it the way I was.

If it helps the BBC have announcers use the bow-rhymes-with-cow pronunciation.
