This discussion was created before the implementation of the Language proposal policy, and it is incompatible with the policy. Please open a new proposal in the format this page has been converted to (see the instructions). Do not copy discussion wholesale, although you are free to link to it or summarise it (feel free to copy your own comments over). —{admin} Pathoschild 05:40, 18 December 2006 (UTC)

  • You should provide some basic info about the language. Otherwise your request cannot be dealt with. Please use this Template. Thanks! --ARBE0 16:47, 8 September 2006 (UTC)

Ok here's the info:

English name or description: Glosa, an IAL based almost entirely on Greek and Latin, isolating grammar, Latin alphabet (minus y) with no special characters.
Approximate number of speakers: about 10 fluent, unknown others
Location(s) spoken: mostly online
Closely related languages, if any: it's an IAL

2. Support -- 68.118.192.39 22:31, 18 November 2006 (UTC)

Glosa is a stable, historical IAL that continues to be supported by multiple fluent speakers. The increased exposure by having its own Wikipedia domain will inevitably draw additional enthusiasts & encourage both Wikipedia-related (such as with Wikibooks) & non-Wikipedia related projects (websites, reading materials, etc.) to be produced, much like the other IAL-based Wikipedias have done.

2. Oppose sorry, but the info page for the language doesn't even have a lot of information. How would one fill a wikipedia? --Puellanivis 01:39, 18 October 2006 (UTC)

  • Omniglot has an article on it, if that means anything.Cameron Nedland 13:52, 18 October 2006 (UTC)
By searching the site, I can only seem to find one reference to Glosa, http://www.omniglot.com/links/conlangs.htm which is just a passing reference. If you're correct and it has a full article, please link it here, and I can take a look. --Puellanivis 01:53, 19 October 2006 (UTC)
