Proposal summary
Please read the handbook for requesters for help using this template correctly.

I think the category [1] gives enough. Not need say more words. Hönkelberg

Arguments in favour[edit]

  • Limburgish starts to become a language with literature. Hönkelberg seems to be a quite active user, so let's try :) --OosWesThoesBes 07:46, 17 February 2008 (UTC)
  • Limburgish has a history too, like Hendrik van Veldeke. VanLankvelt 06:51, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Arguments against[edit]

  • Strongly Oppose Limburgish is just a dialect of Dutch. Of course, they both have some differences, but it is nothing substantial. There is no point in trying to turn every dialect into a language. (Red4tribe 04:35, 21 April 2008 (UTC))
    And who are you to judge whether Limburgish is a dialect or a language? Limburgish in everyday life is unpure. Real Limburgish, you would probably not understand even if you're Dutch. It has an ISO-639-1-code, yes 1, so you could consider it to be a seperate language. Sometimes, the difference between German and Dutch are smaller, compare: Goed - Gut - Good. There are of course also people who say Dutch is a German dialect, but that's nonsense too. En esse den nag dinks det 't Plat gein taal is, raaj ich dich strang ane óm 'ns get taalkóndig beukskes te gaon laeze, sinse dae nag get van op kans staeke. Another thing: last month, the Limburgish Wikisource was more active than the Dutch one. --OosWesThoesBes 04:48, 21 April 2008 (UTC)
