Huillice (wee-yee-se' ) is a beautiful and ancient language of the Huilliche people of southern chile it is spoken by about 2,000 people in the 10th Region especially on Chiloé Island. Its code should be :sai and it should have its own wikipedia because in Wikipedia's quest for collecting all human knowledge differant languages are neccisary and this language will be great to have! For God's sake! Register you fool! Booksworm 15:55, 16 November 2006 (UTC)

  1. Oppose until people willing to work on it are found because the proposer, who doesn't have an account on Meta like they should, seems to be proposing languages for the sake of it. Nikki 19:45, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
  2. Oppose. Lin linao 21:12, 23 November 2006 (UTC) Huilliche dialects (che sungun and veliche), are southern variants of Mapudungun. Their lexicon is a little different and their syntax had been very affected by Spanish. Some speakers of northern dialects can't understand it, but there is no a clear edge between dialects. Maybe Chiloe's veliche it was a separated language, but it is dead since 19th century.
Los dialectos huilliches (che sungun de San Juan de la Costa y veliche de Chiloé) son variantes sureñas del mapudungun, con léxico ligeramente distinto y sintaxis muy afectada por el castellano. Algunos hablantes de las variantes norteñas no son capaces de entenderlo, pero no hay una división clara entre dialectos. Quizás el veliche de Chiloé ya fuera una lengua aparte, pero murió a fines del siglo XIX.
