@Michael junior obregon pozo: To the best of your knowledge, how mutually intelligible are Ancash Quechua and Huaylas Quechua? StevenJ81 (talk)
- @StevenJ81: ancash quechua and huaylas quechua are varieties of quechua but ancash quechua is divided in :conchucos and huaylas, huaylas is one variety, and in conchucos are 5 varieties, and I know a lot of native speakers and a speaker of hauylas quechua don't understand conchucos quechua completely and in conchucos quechua uses other diacritics to write.--Michael junior obregon pozo (talk) 20:37, 16 November 2017 (UTC)
- @StevenJ81: Quechua Wikipedia is written in southern quechua ,and this test wiki is written in Huaylas quechua

- @Michael junior obregon pozo and Liuxinyu970226:. I appreciate that. That's not really going to be the issue, ultimately.
- Right now, we have an already existing project in Southern Quechua, quwiki. We have an eligible test on Incubator using language code quh (assigned by SIL to Chimborazo Highland Quichua), but actually being written using the currently developing standard for Ecuadorian Quechua (or Kichwa).
- Ancash and Huaylas fit into neither of those categories, and it's probably quite reasonable to assume that at least one project that represents "central" varieties of Quechua can also be approved. The reason I asked you about the mutual intelligibility of Ancash and Huaylas is that Huaylas is considered a variety of Ancash. Where languages are mutually intelligible, ideally we have them use a single project, rather than multiple projects. So I do not know whether LangCom would really want there to be a Huaylas project independent of an Ancash project.
- Where languages really form more of a dialect continuum, it is entirely possible to include multiple varieties within a single Wikimedia project. (See, for example, Alemannic Wikipedia, which includes Swiss German, Alsatian, Baden and Swabian varieties—and Swabian even has a separate language code.) My question was more aimed at determining how possible that might be with Huaylas and Ancash.
- Summarizing, I do not think that anyone will ever try to incorporate Huaylas or Ancash into either Southern Quechua Wikipedia or Kichwa (Test) Wikipedia. I think there is a very real possibility that LangCom would want to see Huaylas and Ancash combined, if they get to the point of approval as independent projects. In any event, there is no test in Incubator in any variety of Quechuan that is close to ready for approval. So for now, I don't think anyone needs to worry about anything.

- I will add, Michael, that even if LangCom is willing to allow a separate project in Huaylas, LangCom will never give it final approval as long as it's as much of a one-man banddef. 2 as it is now. The most important thing you could do right now is to try to find others willing to contribute to your test project. StevenJ81 (talk) 17:35, 21 December 2017 (UTC)
- @StevenJ81: Now I'm try to find. new users thanks.

- @StevenJ81: Ancash quechua are Huaylas and Conchucos, recently the ministry of education has created an standard form to write, The other Wikipedia in Ancash quechua is written in the variety of conchucos but this Wikipedia is written in the standard form, for example:
The Suffix -In in wp/qxn is written -chu but in standard form is -chaw iqualy nuu in standard:naw , and in some articles are written with e and o ,when in the standard form there is no e and there is no o too.
- Now with your modifition the incubator:Wp/qwh and incubator:Wp/qxn are now same, both are saying "Ancash Quechua", are you earnestly contributing to write two "Ancash Quechua Wikipedias"? --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 11:58, 26 January 2018 (UTC)
I propose to unify the two ancash wikipedia Quechua in wp / wh, also wp / qxn is not written in the standard form approved by the ministry of education of Peru

- Thx, I decided to merge both to single incubator:Wp/qwh. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 01:41, 27 January 2018 (UTC)
- Is there community consensus to do so? StevenJ81 (talk) 17:18, 27 January 2018 (UTC)
- There is now community consensus to do so. StevenJ81 (talk) 15:02, 26 February 2018 (UTC)
