Japanese equivocation

Removed this:

Ningyo is also a [[Minkaian]] term<ref>''Ningyo ''comes from the Japanese language.</ref> for [[Merfolk]].

If this is stated in a canon source or other clarification, the reference must cite it. Otherwise I'm not sure that we can automatically equivocate the real-world Japanese language with the fictional Minkaian language.

While many things in Pathfinder are derived from or inspired by real-world mythology, that's different from assuming that because a term is used in a real-world language, it must automatically map to the language's fictional equivalent. -Oznogon (talk) 06:44, 10 November 2023 (UTC)
