I think they should both map to jewish-books, because that's what sefarim/seforim are.

It is actually not easy for a synonym to get approved without moderator intervention. In order for a user to vote to approve a synonym, in addition to meeting the reputation threshold the user must have a score of at least 5 in that tag. We only have 139 users who meet the reputation threshold in the first place, many of whom are no longer active on the site....

Speaking for myself, I'm ashamed to admit that I didn't realize that there was a list of suggested synonyms that needed checking. Here's a direct link to it: https://judaism.stackexchange.com/tags/synonyms?filter=suggested&tab=newest I just went through and mod-approved most of the outstanding suggestions. I'll try to remember to check back in there ...

I don't think they should be merged. song-poetry is largely populated with questions that relate to the words in songs and poetry, which is a significant topic in Judaism in its own right, thanks to the centrality of Tehillim and liturgy. In addition, many of these questions have nothing to do with music, per se. This tag also contains some questions about ...

If we split the tags as suggested, then I propose that the song-poetry tag be renamed to songs-poems.

I've now effected this merger.

I have now merged these tags .

It looks like a mistake. All five instances of alef-beit should be replaced with aleph-bet-letters. Consider adding a synonym "alef-bet-letters" to prevent this from happening again the next time someone types in "alef..."

I guess so. Done. maseches-kesubos

As zmiros is a generic term that could apply to Shabbat songs, Chanuka songs, or any other songs (Here is an example of the term modified by both Shabbos and Yom Tov.), I think that mapping a tag by that name to the general songs-poetry tag is more correct than mapping it to the specific shabbat-songs tag. However, I think it would be appropriate to create ...

I agree with most of Monica Cellio's answer. However, since (apparently) the autocomplete feature didn't work properly, or something else made a user choose the tag safrut despite the existence of safrus, I think we should make the one a synonym of the other (and hence make the newer one a synonym of the older one) lest that happen again.

In my opinion, if one tag is hierarchically lower than (a hyponym of) another, then both should not be applied to a question. For clarity, I'll use an example: parashat-balak. It's a hyponym of bamidbar-numbers-book-of and therefore also of pentateuch-chumash and therefore also of tanach and therefore, possibly, also of jewish-books. Surely not every ...

There seem to be quite a few questions addressing material from the Kitzur, at least some of them about the Kitzur itself as a work. It seems to me that it would make sense to have such a tag. I wouldn't go back and apply it to every question that ever quoted the Kitzur, but ones that are tagged shulchan-aruch but quote the Kitzur and not the Shulchan Aruch ...

Oral Law and Scriptural Law is a distinction concerning the transmission modality. Rambam largely discussed the status of Drashot from 13 measures, and Ramban contested him. So this domain is a little complex. But some scriptures are sustained by oral transmission according to all. So Oral can be Deorayta. Derabanan: this is a rabbinical addition. sometimes,...

These have—or should have—different meanings; though a disambiguating word in the Hebrew would be helpful. The tag wiki for kavana-intent suggests “miskavein-intent”; perhaps “miskavein-intentional-actions” might be better. And some questions are certainly mis-tagged. But tag unification would conflate two usefully-separate concepts.

Tag names (including synonyms) are (for now) restricted to the Latin (English) alphabet. Waitasecond. An MSO question says we can have Hebrew tags. (But we don't. I just tried to add a Hebrew synonym.) I guess we just have to put in a feature-request.
