  • Pictogram voting question.svg Question how would this work with items like June (Q120)? For example, in English it’s "June" and in Spanish "junio". Lewis Hulbert (talk) 04:52, 8 November 2018 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Any estimate of how many items this property would be applicable for? Some languages don't have a capital/lowercase distinction, so it would be less than the number of languages... ArthurPSmith (talk) 16:48, 8 November 2018 (UTC)
    • I'd estimate that this would be in line with other similar properties (see also). --- Jura 15:53, 9 November 2018 (UTC)
