Talk:Submissions/Pluricentric languages and Wikipedia - where to draw the line... and where not to

Latest comment: 9 years ago by Braveheart

I won't be able to attend, but think this is an important topic area for a number of languages, including also: issues with standard and local or colloquial forms (assuming this would be an issue with Arabic for instance); pluricentric languages without a single standard but high mutual intelligibility (Fula "ff" which has several varieties); and mutually intelligible languages with separate codes (such as Kinyarwanda and Kirundi). Maybe this stretches the topic area too much, but the case of Fula in particular interests me, and I imagine this presentation may touch on issues that are similar to what that still-small edition faces.--A12n (talk) 15:06, 7 April 2015 (UTC)Reply

Hi A12n, thanks for the input! At the moment I'm focusing the presentation on a small number of languages, but if you could point me to some interesting papers or articles I would very much appreciate it! Cheers, Braveheart (talk) 18:52, 8 April 2015 (UTC)Reply
