Arguments in favour[edit]

  • Conservation for present and future references. I think there will be no problem to find native speakers or persons who have enough knowledges of this language.--Kronos 13:26, 5 November 2008 (UTC)
  • you can't simply put ligurian words into italian wikitionary because aren't the same language, haven't the same definitions, do have different grammar different pronounce and different alphabet; nonetheless the two languages are distinct and somewhat far from each other. A wikitionary themore would be a reference and a standard de facto to guide ligurian community on lij.wikipedia . A lij.wikitionary could also be very useful as future reference as it's an endangered language prone to substitution with the synthetic italian of nowadays. Kronos 10:09, 24 February 2010 (UTC)
  • The ligurian is expression of ones of the most ancient and rich culture of the Mediterranean and is currently used by not less that over 300'000 people. The Ligurian Wiktionary will help to preserve our culture. --Gastaz 10:00, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

Arguments against[edit]

  • in liguria today everybody speak italian, it's futile a wiktionary in ligure. you can use it.wiktionary and put in words in ligure--Ilaria 13:24, 27 November 2008 (UTC)
    • Would the Italian Wiktionary accept definitions in Ligurian? As the expected answer is no, you compare functionality that is just not the same. GerardM 06:31, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
      • the definitions no, the words yes. but if sadinian wiktionary hasn't contributions since may 27, 2008, how can we hope that this success can have success ? i think it' s not the time for open a wiktionary in ligure--Ilaria 13:42, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
