I think we need a Middle English wikipedia becuAse we have and old english and modern English wikipedia old English is an extinct languge but it still has a wikipedia so I think we should have one because there's and old English so we should have middle and English then modern English
I propose that enm wikipedia be created is because it is a historical languge and is from 1100 to 1500. It was the next new languge after old English. I think it should be created because old English wikipedia was created

- Locations spoken: England circa 1200-1450
Also known as Medieval English. My justification for this language parallels whatever was the winning argument for the Old English(Anglo-Saxon) Wiki that is now quite large. By Middle English I mean the language as spoken and written in about 1300. It is certainly a language(incomprehensible without prepreparation), and has widespread appreciation by those familiar with the rawly-spelt editions of medieval poetry etc. It has an orthography standardised by the great poets of that era. It lacks V and J, and features the characters eth and thorn.
Support - Although I think that this proposal is pretty weak, I have to say that the test project for this is pretty impressive. I don't speak Middle English, but if I did, I would have contributed to it. Once the number of pages gets into the hundreds, I think that this could be created. Good luck! --GTAVmaster (talk) 16:09, 19 May 2016 (UTC)
Oppose - Middle English is an extinct language, so it can't get a Wikipedia page. --TrooperAnimalLover
