Though under the administration of Henan Province, Shangqiu shares more cultural similarity with the marginal area of Eastern Henan

I don't understand. Where's the contradiction there? Ikan Kekek (talk)

I think it only makes sense if you include the rest of the sentence. Maybe it would be easier to parse if phrased like this: "Though under the administration of Henan Province, Shangqiu shares more cultural similarity with Huaihai District (淮海地区), a marginal area that includes part of Eastern Henan, southwest Shandong, Northern Jiangsu and Northern Anhui." —Granger (talk · contribs) 02:43, 1 May 2019 (UTC)
I didn't know a district could be shared by more than one province. Yes, that's much clearer. Ikan Kekek (talk) 03:22, 1 May 2019 (UTC)
Yeah, I'm not sure "district" is the best translation. As I understand it, Huaihai isn't an administrative unit. Better to call it "Huaihai Area" or just "Huaihai", I think. —Granger (talk · contribs) 04:13, 1 May 2019 (UTC)
I would translate it as 'the Huaihai region'. STW932 (talk) 06:57, 1 May 2019 (UTC)
Thanks. Is this edit sufficient, or do the Chinese characters need to be changed in any way? Ikan Kekek (talk) 07:34, 1 May 2019 (UTC)
It's fine (though I have decided to add the article 'the'). There is no need to modify the Chinese characters. STW932 (talk) 10:34, 1 May 2019 (UTC)
