Requests for new languages/Wikipedia Laki
|←main page||Request for a new language edition: Wikipedia Laki|
- 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|
|Language code||lki (SIL, Glottolog)||A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...|
|Language name||Laki||Language name in English|
|Language name||لەکی||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||Q56483 - item has currently the following values:
||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.|
|Directionality||RTL||Is the language written from left to right (LTR) or from right to left (RTL)?|
|Project name||ویکیپدیا||"Wikipedia" in your language|
|Project namespace||ویکیپدیای لەکی||usually the same as the project name|
|Project talk namespace||گەپ||"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.
|Project logo||File:Laki-logo.png||This needs to be an SVG image (instructions for logo creation).|
|Default project timezone||Asia/Tehran||"Continent/City", e.g. "Europe/Brussels" or "America/Mexico City" (see list of valid timezones)|
|Additional namespaces||Page: ورق, Page talk: گپ داین, Index: فیرست, Index talk: فیرست گپ||For example, a Wikisource would need "Page", "Page talk", "Index", "Index talk", "Author", "Author talk".|
|Additional settings||This language has a Latin and Arabic Script. لکی and Laki.||Anything else that should be set|
Laki is a language of iranian languages . Laki is a language of about 1.5 million people (2000 year)that live in west of iran and some city of east of iraq. This language is ancient language in persia and traced back to Sasanian era that its alive still. I wondered from lack of this language in Wikipedia so I request laki language for wikipedia to help lak people and wikipedia development. The Lak poets always introduce their self as a Kurd like Colonel Dudan , Mullah Parishan , Khan Almas , TurkAmir Azad Bakht , Sha Mobarek(Sha Khweshin)

Laki, This vernacular is just a major dialect of Gurâni and is treated here separately not on linguistic grounds, but ethnological. The speakers of Laki have been steadily pulling away from the main body of Kurds, increasingly associating with their neighbouring ethnic group, the Lurs. The phenomenon is most visible among the educated Laks and the urbanites the countryside, the commoners still consider themselves Kurds in regions bordering other parts of Kurdistan, and Laks or Lurs where they border the Lurs. The process is a valuable living example of the dynamics through which the entire southern Zagros has been permanently lost by the Kurds since the late medieval period: an ethnic metamorphosis that converted the Lurs, Celus, Mamasanis, and Shabankdras into a new ethnic group (the greater Lurish ethnic group), independent of the Kurds.
Laki is presently spoken in the areas south of Hamadân and including the towns of Nahawand, Tuisirkân, Nurâbâd, Ilâm, Gelân, and Pahla (Pehle), as well as the countryside in the districts of Horru, Selasela, Silâkhur, and the northern Alishtar in western Iran. There are also major Laki colonies spread from Khurâsân to the Mediterranean Sea. Pockets of Laki speakers are found in Azerbaijan, the Alburz mountains, the Caspian coastal region, the Khurasani enclave (as far south as Birjand), the mountainous land between Qum and Kâshân, and the region between Adiyaman and the Ceyhan river in far western Kurdistan in Anatolia. There are also many Kurdish tribes named Lak who now speak other Kurdish dialects (or other languages altogether) and are found from Adana to central Anatolia in Turkey, in Daghistân in the Russian Caucasus, and from Ahar to the suburbs of Teheran in Iran.
The syntax and vocabulary of Laki have been profoundly altered by Luri, itself an offshoot of New Persian, a Southwest Iranic language. The basic grammar and verb systems of Laki are, like in all other Kurdish dialects, clearly Northwest Iranic. This relationship is further affirmed by remnants in Laki of the Kurdish grammatical hallmark, the ergative construction. The Laki language is therefore fundamentally different from Luri, and sin-iilar to Kurdish.
There are at least 1.5 million Laki speakers at present, and possibly many more, as they are often counted as Lurs.

Arguments in favor
- SupportTheMilad This project confirms that Laki is language which can be one of official Wikipedia languages. Obviously the main domain (lki.wikipedia.org) encourage Lak people to extend this language in Wikimedia better than ever.
- SupportThe laki language is the best Iranians language because of its best pronounciation.it was very good to have its own wiki to allow people around the world to taste this language.this

- Weak oppose. The test looks promising at first, but a closer look to its contents reveals that most pages are actually nothing more than one-sentence stubs, such as  and . I would very much like to see a bigger effort in creating quality pages than the creation of a million stubs with virtually no contents. --OosWesThoesBes (talk) 16:50, 27 December 2015 (UTC)
