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 02:26, 1 December 2006 (UTC)

  • Support This language is in need to be revive as this language is unique and distinct from Hebrew. If a dead languages like Polabian is being on request for revival as a Wikipedia, and sooner or later as a spoken language again, so must Phoenician languages too. — Lokey3310 10:09, 15 November 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]



  • Neutral Is Phoenician so important? There isn't even an Ancient Greek Wikipedia, so I don't see why we'd need a Phoenician version so badly. You'd better gather a lot of willing contributors and build a flourishing test wiki, then you might (mind: might) change my mind.
