The Italian government has officially recognised the Sardinian language or the "Limba Sarda Comune". This is in essence a constructed language as it tries to make one language out of the four "dialects". One of the effects has been that some people prevent others from writing in one of the four languages on the sc.wikpedia.
The language committee of the Wikimedia Foundation has a request to approve a new language; one of the Sardinian languages, Sassarese with ISO code sdc.
There are two problems to deal with:
- The "Limba Sarda Comune" is not recognised as a language
- The proponents of the "Limba Sarda Comune" reserve the sc.wikipedia for their language
Given that the language committee has as one of its rules that political arguments are not accepted, there are a few conclusions that we should make.
- Sassarese can have a conditional approval
- We urge the proponents of the Limba Sarda Comune to ask for the recognition of this newly constructed language from ISO.
