submitted verification final decision
Process-stop.svg This proposal has been rejected.
This decision was taken by the language committee in accordance with the Language proposal policy based on the discussion on this page.

The closing committee member provided the following comment:

Samoic Tongan is not a known language (and the Samoic language group does not include the Tongan language), and therefore does not meet the criteria for eligibility. Constructed or merged languages are not accepted. Please open a request for a Tongan Wikipedia instead. —Pathoschild 22:46:49, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

Arguments in favour[edit]

  • Samoic Tongan is a language, that is very important to bring together the small isolated communities or Island group who come from North of Tonga and island groups in Samoa. This is for people from Niuatoputapu(Tonga),Tafahi(Tonga), Aleipata Islands(Samoa). Please help this community try to have a language easier for both Northern Tongans and Samoan people to understand.
