Proposal summary

A living language (with 40,000 speakers).

Arguments in favour[edit]

Arguments against[edit]

  • Oppose, the number of native speakers is very low, articles on the incubator page are almost empty (2-3 Nenets words with links on Russian), it means that this community is not active and, unfortunately, in my opinion, can not be active at all. A lot of people, who can speak Nenets, live in tundra without the Internet access, most of them are old people. So a lot of young Nenets people living in cities and using Internet can not read and write Nenets language fluently. Therefore I think that this Wiki will be empty and not useful, unfortunately. --LexArt 08:30, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
  • Oppose - I regret voting this way, but I am not convinced by the number of speakers.-MacRusgail (talk) 23:00, 11 December 2014 (UTC)

Other discussion[edit]

Is this request for Forest or Tundra Nenets? --OosWesThoesBes 08:32, 9 April 2011 (UTC)

Tundra--Jugydmort 15:47, 19 April 2011 (UTC)

There is only one Nenets recognised under the yrk code.. Both Forest and Tundra are understood to be the same language. We are talking Nenets not Enets.. GerardM (talk) 12:22, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

Forest Nenets de-facto is separate language, but it have very few speakers and not have official status. Here is Tundra Nenets project (de-facto). May be, we need to create a separate Forest Nenets project, if we find his speakers. (Sorry, if my English is bad). --Jugydmort (talk) 16:09, 7 December 2012 (UTC)
