Seems like this page should be merged with "Mount Kerinci", which (I believe) is the more correct spelling in current Indonesian usage. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tbarron (talkcontribs) 04:09, 29 May 2005 (UTC)[reply]

I'm Indonesian, and the correct name is Kerinci, NOT Kerinchi. Well, more Google results do not means more correct, because many West people still use uncorrect new Indonesian writing system introduced in 1972.


Has snow or snow flakes ever been seen in or around the Kerinci ? It is more than 3800m and it would be the tallest place where neiother a single snowflake fallen in modern era. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:05, 16 September 2009 (UTC)[reply]

"Kecik Wok Gedang Wok" & 135 dialects

The reference for "Kecik Wok Gedang Wok" is a sensationalist newspaper article entitled "Suku Kerinci Ras Tertua di Dunia?" (roughly: "Are the Kerinci people the oldest race in the world?"). The article quotes a professor at Diponegoro University (Semarang, Indonesia) who, in turn, summarizes in his own words the findings of scholarly work from the early 1970s. The accuracy of this third-hand information is questionable. I suggest removing mention of "Kecik Wok Gedang Wok" until the claims about their existence have been checked carefully with the original sources. Moreover, if information is provided about "Kecik Wok Gedang Wok", the article should cite these original sources.

There is also not a citation for the claim that there are 135 dialects in Kerinci. To my knowledge the only comparative work on Kerinci dialects to date was a short section in Amir Hakim Usman's dissertation from the University of Indonesia (1988). He only provides a very rough estimate of how many dialects there are. The article seems to present the number 135 as factual.
