Arguments in favour

  • Support Support It's the fastest language in the Peripheral Visayan Language Family.
  • Support Support It has distinct and unique vocabulary that other languages can hardly understand.
  • Support Support There are more than 600,000 native speakers in Capiz, Northern Iloilo, and Southern Masbate.
  • Support Support I am supporting Capisano Wikipedia and I am going to help in the development of this language wiki Oxyzen 13:22, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
  • Support Support We need to clear that Capiznon and Hiligaynon are two related but they are both separate languages in terms of vocabulary, accent and has a bit of grammar differences.
  • Support Support Native speakers of Capiznon have the competency and willingness to contribute to this project in the long-term. Hence the Capiznon language deserves to be given the opportunity and priviledge to have its own language edition of Wikipedia along with the existing Philippino languages such as Bikol, Cebuano, and so on. --Jose77 23:08, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
  • Support Support Definitely. Capiznon is well considered to be outside the realm of the Hiligaynon language, and with what I currently see from the project right now, it definitely deserves a go. --Sky Harbor 07:58, 15 April 2010 (UTC)
  • Support Support Chabi 06:21, 4 September 2010 (UTC)
  • Support Support Once this has started the only major Panay language is Aklanon.--23prootie 22:11, 21 November 2010 (UTC)
  • Support Support 100 % support --U.Steele 21:34, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
  • Support Support Ethnologue and the Summer Institute of Linguistics give a 20% lexical difference to determine separate languages. This is not absolute as there is, for example, only a 9% lexical difference between Spanish and Portuguese - the same difference between Hiligaynon and Capiznon. Catalan has a 15% lexical difference from Spanish and is considered a different language. (Ref. SIL and DILA.) --Aswang 17:11, 21 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Support, Filipino languages have all done well.Luciferwildcat (talk) 03:37, 31 March 2012 (UTC)
