WikiLang

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

UPDATE: The creation of a new project has been rejected. An English version of Wikilang has been created on the English Wikiversity at Portal:Wikilang. Should the project there become active enough and different enough from the Wikiversity, a proposal could be re-opened to discuss the possibility of creating a new project. In the meantime, feel free to develop the Wikilang project on Wikiversity, and also feel free to start Wikilang projects on Wikiversities in other languages. Please contact me if you have any questions or suggestions about Wikilang. Thank you, Amqui (talk) 16:45, 18 March 2017 (UTC)[reply]

  35. There are a few sites around that does something similar, but as far as I know, nothing wiki-like easy to edit. And most sites are concentrated on a particular language family. Furthermore, I think the grammar pages and vocabulary lists on Wikipedia are not encyclopedic and should be rather moved to a project like WikiLang. --Kip (talk) 11:50, 2 May 2013 (UTC)[reply]
  36. I myself am fluent in the reading and writing of Egyptian from the "Son of Ra" Pharonic period of Egypt, and am thrilled that such a project as this is garnering approval from Meta. I would love to help where possible. TIM(Contact)/(Contribs) 23:00, 2 May 2013 (UTC)[reply]

  54. It would be a good place to the things that are now done on incubator, but are out of the scope of it. Some languages are too small to have native speakers. Carsrac (talk) 12:06, 25 May 2013 (UTC)[reply]
  55. It is a good Idea. --Hym411 (talk) 07:14, 29 May 2013 (UTC)[reply]
  56. Wanted to learn some German. Ready to help in anyway possible The preceding unsigned comment was added by AthulBiju94 (talk • contribs) 13:52, 1 June 2013‎.
  57. Yes. But can it be more explicit that this will go beyond just a collection of lexicons (dictionaries)? Grammar is far more challenging to document, but a start should be made for extinct and threatened languages. Tony (talk) 10:19, 6 June 2013 (UTC)[reply]
  58. This would be wonderful. I have hoped for years that Wikimedia would provide an environment for the conservation of both ancient and endangered contemporary languages! Dovi (talk) 08:52, 7 June 2013 (UTC)[reply]
  59. WikiLang could be used to not only revive dead languages, but as a resource in the classroom for teaching foreign languages. Citrusbowler (talk) 18:28, 7 June 2013 (UTC)[reply]

  72. Since the loss of LiveMocha as an independent entity, particularly for users of certain platforms and the loss of many helpful features, I specifically came looking to see if a project like this existed. So I support it and would offer whatever help I might be able to provide. Pandarsson (talk) 23:09, 16 December 2013 (UTC)[reply]
