  • @John Cummings: can you please correct your proposal? Multichill (talk) 20:05, 27 January 2020 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I'm kind of confused on how to model it, there are several resources for some languages on the site, should this be in a different section? --John Cummings (talk) 22:37, 28 January 2020 (UTC)
    • @John Cummings: oh wait, this isn't an identifier for the language but for a resource relating to a language? It might be better to create items for those specific resources, and link them to the language via the property main subject (P921). ArthurPSmith (talk) 18:37, 3 February 2020 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support external identifier. As International decade of Indigenous languages is coming up in a couple of years, it will be interesting to know the diverse efforts of researchers around the world with respect to languages, especially endangered languages and link the external identifiers to Wikidata.
