This page is for the proposal of new properties.

Before proposing a property
  1. Check if the property already exists by looking at Wikidata:List of properties (manual list) and Special:ListProperties.
  2. Check if the property is already pending or has been rejected.
  3. Check if you can give a similar label and definition as an existing Wikipedia infobox parameter, or if it can be matched to an infobox, to or from which data can be transferred automatically.
  4. Select the right datatype for the property.
  5. Start writing the documentation based on the preload form below and add it in the appropriate section.

Creating the property

  1. Change status=ready on template to attract the attention of a property creator.
  2. Creation can be done after 1 week by a property creator or an administrator.
  3. See steps when creating properties.

ISO 639 scope[edit]

   Not done
Description The language scope as defined by ISO 639.
Data type Item
Domain language (Q34770)
Allowed values individual language, dialect (Q33384), macrolanguage (Q152559), language collection.
Example English (Q1860) => individual language
Source ISO 639-3 (Q845956)
Robot and gadget jobs might be imported by bot
Proposed by Pathoschild

This property would contain the language scope defined in the ISO 639-3 standard; see Scope of denotation for language identifiers for a full description. This property is of general interest — the standard is widely recognized (including by the Wikimedia Foundation for its language codes), and the scope is used by the Wikimedia language committee to determine the eligibility for new wikis. —Pathoschild 20:56, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

citation needed. Visite fortuitement prolongée (talk) 21:05, 1 January 2015 (UTC)
duplicate of ISO 639-1 code (P218), ISO 639-2 code (P219) and ISO 639-3 code (P220)? --Pasleim (talk) 18:55, 21 January 2015 (UTC)
It's not a duplicate of those. English has ISO 639-1 code "en", ISO 639-2/3 "eng" and is an individual language. Norwegian has ISO 639-1 code "no", ISO 639-2/3 "nor" and is a macrolanguage. - Nikki (talk) 13:24, 26 June 2015 (UTC)
ISO 639-3 only includes three scopes, "individual", "macrolanguage" and "special" (see [1]), it doesn't include "dialect" or "language collection" like this proposal suggests. - Nikki (talk) 13:24, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

We can use instance of (P31), i.e.
< English (Q1860) (View with Reasonator) > instance of (P31) miga < individual language >
--Pasleim (talk) 08:51, 18 April 2016 (UTC)

@Pathoschild:  Not done: no support, issues mentioned by User:Nikki were not addressed. Just use instance of (P31) per User:Pasleim. --Srittau (talk) 13:13, 23 April 2016 (UTC)

@Srittau: I did not bring up any issues. I only pointed out why this property would not be a duplicate of ISO 639-1 code (P218) (etc). - Nikki (talk) 13:44, 23 April 2016 (UTC)
