Czech language[edit]

Hi everyone, I intend to nominate this article for FAC soon, any comments from members of this project would be appreciated. There is also a source query on the talk page, in case anyone here has access to that source. – filelakeshoe (t / c) 🐱 13:30, 2 November 2021 (UTC)

The discussion has closed as 'speedy delete' for copyright violation. Cnilep (talk) 01:32, 16 November 2021 (UTC)

FAR for Irish phonology[edit]

I have nominated Irish phonology for a featured article review here. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets featured article criteria. Articles are typically reviewed for two weeks. If substantial concerns are not addressed during the review period, the article will be moved to the Featured Article Removal Candidates list for a further period, where editors may declare "Keep" or "Delist" the article's featured status. The instructions for the review process are here. Z1720 (talk) 22:34, 27 November 2021 (UTC)

Hmar language(s)[edit]

Does anybody know the relationship between Hmar languages and Hmar language? The first looks like it is about a language family, but the sources do not support it. Joofjoof (talk) 20:16, 3 December 2021 (UTC)

Looks ok. The classification follows Glottolog, which in turn follows this dissertation. I will add a citation to it in Hmar languages. –Austronesier (talk) 20:37, 3 December 2021 (UTC)

Private use tag for Common Brittonic with Module:Lang[edit]

Hello, I would like to suggest a private use tag cel-x-bryproto for tagging Common Brittonic on Wikipedia. Any objections or other suggestions? Other possibilities might be cel-x-britpro, cel-x-protobry, cel-x-probritt... the relevant talk page is here. Thanks. Tewdar (talk) 18:19, 5 December 2021 (UTC)

Wiktionary uses cel-bry-pro, so maybe there's some merit in selecting a similar code here in WP for cross-Wiki consistency. –Austronesier (talk) 19:12, 5 December 2021 (UTC)
@Austronesier: Not sure if that's possible: "bry is an ISO 639-3 tag assigned to Burui language" as the lang module talk page says. Not sure if that applies to your suggestion (which I like) or not. Tewdar (talk) 21:49, 5 December 2021 (UTC)

Enochian[edit]

Anyone know of anyone beside Laycock who's looked into the phonology or grammar? (Have an editor who says it's unscientific to analyze Enochian w/o interviewing angels.) — kwami (talk) 20:54, 17 January 2022 (UTC)

Adding ethnologue.com to the wikipedialibrary[edit]

Hello from Wikipedia in French.

I have just been granted the right to use the Wikipedia Library and I would like to propose to all contributors to vote to add the ethnologue.com database to this library.

Please go to http://wikipedialibrary.wmflabs.org/suggest/ , search for "Ethnologue" (with Ctrl+F) and vote for this site to be added.

I remind you that this site has served us for years as a source for language articles and that it contains ethnographic data (most of it first hand) on almost all languages. Some may say that their data is sometimes unreliable, but on the whole, it is by far the most comprehensive database on languages that exists, and there is no source that is 100% reliable.

Sincerely, Şÿℵדαχ₮ɘɼɾ๏ʁ 20:53, 19 January 2022 (UTC)

How do you vote? I don't see anything. — kwami (talk) 07:55, 21 January 2022 (UTC)
@Kwamikagami: There is an "Upvote"-button on the right side of every requested item. –Austronesier (talk) 12:07, 21 January 2022 (UTC)
I don't see it. The only button on my screen is the blue 'submit' button at the very top. Tried both FF and Falkon. — kwami (talk) 12:10, 21 January 2022 (UTC)
I can see them with Chrome on my PC, but not on my mobile. –Austronesier (talk) 12:50, 21 January 2022 (UTC)
You first need to log in here and then you'll see the "Upvote" button. A455bcd9 (talk) 13:24, 21 January 2022 (UTC)
By the way, it's pretty easy to get a free access to Ethnologue: you just need to join their Contributor Program and make at least one contribution every year. A455bcd9 (talk) 13:26, 21 January 2022 (UTC)

Cornish language tags[edit]

Hi! Please feel free to add your opinions and suggestions to the discussion here. You might also like to read the previous section, which is here. Thanks!  Tewdar  (talk) 21:48, 19 January 2022 (UTC)

Enochian language[edit]

Article currently protected (for 5 days), due to a dispute with an editor who argues that Don Laycock isn't a RS because he didn't interview any angels, and has been trying to remove any categorization of Enochian as a conlang (found an LSA cite for that). Don't think it needs much work, just some eyes to stop any future edit-warring. — kwami (talk) 07:53, 21 January 2022 (UTC)
