This discussion was created before the implementation of the Language proposal policy, and it is incompatible with the policy.

  • I propose that the should be a new wiktionary intended for aramaic/syriac speakers. I propose that it be titled "". This would be a good resource for Chaldeans, Assyrians, Maronites, other Syriac speaking people. I do speak the language, know its spellings, and I wish to administate this webpage to prevent false definitions of words or mispelled words. I need to know how to establish this wiktionary and to change the fonts used within it. I am Makkow makkow and i would greatly appreciate the help. Thank you!
  • There are many languages considered Aramic and Syriac is only one Ethnologue gives you a nice overview about this. Wiktionary aims to have all words of all languages with a userinterface in one language. When you pick one, you face an uphill struggle. When you want to concentrate on adding words of one or more of these languages, you might include it in an existing Wiktionary project. GerardM 13:56, 3 June 2006 (UTC)
