These two tags and identify actually the same thing.

However I can't propose the tag synonym myself, because I don't have 5 total score on those tags. It seems the only active user who can is Tang Ho (I just upvoted his only answer to a total of 5). Or an all-powerful moderator.

Do you agree? Shall we go ahead and synonymize the two tags?

  • It seems this would be a worthwhile synonym too. (Instead of, say, simply retagging the small number of questions.) – Becky 李蓓 Jul 7 at 23:36
  • (When it comes down to it, tags are long overdue for an overhaul: there's still meta tags like [intermediate] and [advanced], tags like [phrase-meaning] which are a subset of [meaning], the [mandarin], [simplified-chinese], and [word] tags which basically function as [random-question] tags, etc.) – Becky 李蓓 Jul 8 at 0:00
  • I don't have 5 total scores on the 'verb-object-compounds' tag – Tang Ho Jul 8 at 1:55
  • Which tag do you want to remain? (I suggest keeping [separable-verbs].) – Becky 李蓓 Jul 15 at 0:49
  • @Becky李蓓 yes [separable-verbs] seems a more widely recognized term – blackgreen Jul 15 at 5:26

There, I did it.

It's a tiny, easily reversible change [and it seems rather obvious to me], so I don't think there's any point dilly dallying on this.

(If anyone thinks this is a mistake, let me know please.)

I also edited the tag wiki to make it more succinct, and changed the example to show separation:

Separable verbs (or: verb-object compounds) are verbs that can be separated, such as 睡觉 within 睡一个好觉.
