The closing committee member provided the following comment:

This discussion was created before the implementation of the Language proposal policy, and it is incompatible with the policy. Please open a new proposal in the format this page has been converted to (see the instructions). Do not copy discussion wholesale, although you are free to link to it or summarise it (feel free to copy your own comments over). —{admin} Pathoschild 22:02:11, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

  • A dictionary is available at click here
  • Very skeptical: South Tyrolean is simply a German dialect like many others. Besides, I have never seen any newspapers written in that dialect. Which ones do you mean? Arbeo 11:12, 13 August 2005 (UTC)
  • Good idea, but will it be sufficient for a whole Wikipedia? I mean, I know south tyrolean, and know that it is very far from german standard but does it have words for things besides the daily-life-words? If yes, I would support, even if I can not really contribute. tiontai.
  • The South Tyrolian dialects belong to the Bavarian group of the High German language area. I do not support the creation of a South Tyrolian Wikipedia but I do support a Bavarian one - there is one for Alemannic too, which started as an Alsatian Wikipedia only.

  • Strong Support: there are a lot of books (translated like "The Little Prince" or written by South Tyrolean writers) and dictionaries which are written in South Tyrolean dialect. I think it's better a wikipedia in South Tyrolean and not a wikipedia in Bavarian-Austrian, which hasn't got a standard form and for example a Bavarian of Munich who speaks Münchner Bairisch doesn't understand a South Tyrolean who speaks Bozner Südtirolerisch.

Note: South Tyrolian is now covered by the joint Austro-Bavarian request (see main page). Arbeo 17:27, 29 April 2006 (UTC)
