main page Request for a new language edition: Wikipedia Base Ganu
submitted verification final decision
Process-stop.svg This proposal has been rejected.
This decision was taken by the language committee in accordance with the Language proposal policy based on the discussion on this page.

A committee member provided the following comment:

No language code; in fact SIL request rejected. (link below fixed) If the original proposer were still an active member of the community, we could potentially discuss an approach to this. But under the circumstances, I think we simply need to close this, and encourage people to contribute to Malay Wikipedia. For LangCom: StevenJ81 (talk) 16:26, 13 June 2019 (UTC)
  • The community needs to develop an active test project; it must remain active until approval (automated statistics, recent changes). It is generally considered active if the analysis lists at least three active, not-grayed-out editors listed in the sections for the previous few months.
  • The community needs to complete required MediaWiki interface translations in that language (about localization, translatewiki, check completion).
  • The community needs to discuss and complete the settings table below:
What Value Example / Explanation
Proposal
Language code  (SILEthnologue) A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...
Language name Terengganu Malay Language name in English
Language name Base Ganu Language name in your language. This will appear in the language list on Special:Preferences, in the interwiki sidebar on other wikis, ...
Language Wikidata item Q4207412 - item has currently the following values:
  • en label = Terengganu Malay
  • native label (P1705) =
  • instance/subclass (P31/P279) = language / Malay
  • Wikimedia language code (P424) =
  • writing system (P282) =
  • number of speakers (P1098) =


Item about the language at Wikidata. It would normally include the Wikimedia language code, name of the language, etc. Please complete at Wikidata if needed.
Community
You can optionally list your user name if you are an active contributor to the test wiki. Add "N" next to your name if you are a native speaker of this language.
Links Links to previous requests, or references to external websites or documents.
Settings
Project name Wikipedia "Wikipedia" in your language
Project namespace Wikipedia usually the same as the project name
Project talk namespace Laman Perbincangan "Wikipedia talk" (the discussion namespace of the project namespace)
Enable uploads yes Default is "no". Preferably, files should be uploaded to Commons.
If you want, you can enable local file uploading, either by any user ("yes") or by administrators only ("admin").
Notes: (1) This setting can be changed afterwards. The setting can only be "yes" or "admin" at approval if the test creates an Exemption Doctrine Policy (EDP) first. (2) Files on Commons can be used on all Wikis. (3) Uploading fair-use images is not allowed on Commons (more info). (4) Localisation to your language may be insufficient on Commons.
Optional settings
Project logo File:... 135x135 PNG derivative from a decent SVG image (instructions)
Default project timezone Asia/Kuala Lumpur "Continent/City", e.g. "Europe/Brussels" or "America/Mexico City" (see list of valid timezones)
Additional namespaces For example for a Wikisource which would need "Page", "Page talk", "Index", "Index talk"
Additional settings Anything else that should be set
submit phabricator task (includes everything automatically, except additional namespaces/settings)

Proposal[edit]

Terengganu Malay (Terengganu Malay: Base Ganu or Base Tranung with r being a guttural sound) is a Malayan language or dialect native to the state of Terengganu (except in Besut where they speak Kelantanese Malay), coastal Pahang, northeastern Johor in Malaysia and the Anambas islands in Indonesia. It has a total of 1.1 million native speakers. The dialect is sometimes unintelligible to most parts of Malaysia and it has a slightly different grammar compared to standard Malay. Terengganu Malay has various types of sub-dialects and the unofficial standard of Terengganu Malay are those spoken in Kuala Terengganu. Today, Terengganu Malay is primarily a spoken language but there's a history of Terengganu Malay literature in the past, especially during post-colonial period or during Hindu-Buddhist times (as seen in traditional songs such as Ulek Mayang, Rodat and Anok Burong Baniong).

~Trying to get an ISO code for Terengganuan Malay.

Discussion[edit]

The ISO code trg is for an entirely different language. It would if you could provide an existing ISO 639-3 code which is assigned to this language, otherwise likely Langcom has to reject this request. --MF-W 22:35, 11 December 2013 (UTC)

According to w:Terengganu Malay, it has no ISO 639-3 code. PiRSquared17 (talk) 23:04, 11 December 2013 (UTC)

Hi. There is no ISO code. You have given the linguist list code, which LangCom doesn't care about. Sorry. PiRSquared17 (talk) 15:45, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

The code request for Terengganu Malay seems rejected. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 15:14, 16 February 2016 (UTC)

Comment Comment User:47.150.92.85 is proposing to use iso639-3:zlm, where says "Malay (individual language)". I don't know if this is allowed or not. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 23:38, 17 July 2017 (UTC)
