Basque Wikipedians have considered it interesting to gradually load the Elhuyar Dictionary (one of the most renowned Basque dictionaries) to Wikidata lexemes, starting with 10,000 names and their forms. Adding this property to the lexemes will serve as an external authority control, and will also serve as link for subsequent information addition (senses, etc.). --Elhuyar Fundazioa (talk) 13:01, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
