  • Number of speakers: about 800.000
  • Locations spoken: Italy
  • Friulan is a Romance language belonging to the Rhaeto-Romance family, spoken in the Friuli region of northeastern Italy. Friulan has around 800,000 speakers, the vast majority of whom also speak Italian. It is sometimes called Eastern Ladin, since it shares the same roots as Ladin, although over the centuries it has diverged under the influence of surrounding languages, including German, Italian, Venetian, and Slovene. Documents in Friulan are attested from the 11th century, and poetry and literature dating as far back as 1300. By the 20th century, there was a revival of interest in the language, which has continued to this day.

Arguments in favour[edit]

  • Support Many people are intrested in learning how to correclty write words in Friulian language, as most of the speakers know only how to speak it. In addition, a standard Friulian Wiktionary could help anyone who's intrested in learning a new language, especially people who have emigrated abroad but still want to know more about the language of their granparents, in order to preserve their roots. I'm a Friulian mothertongue and I'll develop this project with honour. Akaahdudeson
  • Support A Friulian Wiktionary is very important to keep the vocabulary of this language. This project would also help the conservation of the languages and furthermore would make friulan vocabulary accessible to everyone. --Reder 08:47, 20 July 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Support Totally agree with this proposal, many people who actually know whow to speak Friulian (even natives, like me) really need a Wiktionary, in order to better their written Friulian and teach it to others. --VigjPantiane 16:27, 26 July 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
