  • Comments:
    • You're mentioning Franco-Provençal as a "related language". Do you really consider them two separate languages? I always thought Arpitan is just a different name for the Franco-Provençal language. Arbeo 21:24, 29 August 2005 (UTC)
    • Yes, I think this request can be treated in a similar way as the Triestin and South Tyrolean requests. Dialect speakers tend to think the dialect of their region is very dissimilar to the dialect spoken just a few miles apart. So I oppose an Arpitan Wikipedia but support one in Franco-Provençal. I hope more French regional languages will be requested in the near future, like Champenois, Picard, Gallo and Normand. Caesarion Velim, non opto 07:21, 30 August 2005 (UTC)
    • Yes, Arpitan and Francoprovençal are synonym. So I support an Arpitan/Francoprovençal Wikipedia ;o) A bentout! Dahu 09:27, 30 August 2005 (UTC)
      • Especially with regard to the small number of speakers, I think this should be a Wikipedia that serves all dialects of Franco-Provençal/Arpitan or employs a common standard (if there exists an accepted one). I'd morally support it ;-) Arbeo 11:34, 30 August 2005 (UTC)
