Add bulk lexeme creation mode

Description

Add bulk lexeme creation mode

In this mode, you can create a set of lexemes by specifying their form
representations, separated by tab or pipe characters, one lexeme per
line – for example:

thing|things
example|examples
test|tests

This is deliberately not linked anywhere yet – I want to keep the
feature hidden and test it with some selected users initially. I’m not
even sure about the “bulk” name yet. (I hesitate to call it a “batch”,
as in QuickStatements or QuickCategories, because it’s not permanent and
I have no intention to make it so.)

Do you need a beta tester? I have a public domain list of 600 Sursilvan verbs including inflected forms. (In Sursilvan, verb inflection is quite complicated and fills entire textbooks; sort of like Latin, but with more exceptions). I’d like importing this knowledge to Wikidata. (Actually, if QuickStatements2 was able to create lexemes and refer to the newly created lexeme from within the same batch, that would probably be enough). Example:

vuler # lemma and infinitive [Q179230]
wollen # German translation of lemma/infinitive
vi # 1st person singular [Q51929218] present indicative [Q56682909]: ‘I want’ = jeu vi
vul # 2nd person singular present indicative; ‘you want’ = ti vul
vul # 3rd person singular indicative present; ‘she/he wants’ = ella/el vul
vulein|lein # 1st person plural indicative present; note there’s two alternate forms: ‘we want’ = nus vulein | nus lein
vuleis|leis # 2nd person plural indicative present; note there’s two alternate forms: ‘you (pl.) want’ = vus vuleis | vus leis
vulan # 3st person plural indicative present; ‘they want’ = els/ellas vulan
vulevel|level	# 1st person singular past indicative; note there’s two alternate forms; ‘I wanted’ = jeu vulevel | jeu level
(etc.)

Do you need a beta tester?

Well, this feature has been public for almost three months now, so I wouldn’t say I need a beta tester as such…

Feel free to head over to the language support section and create a template for Sursilvan. (But note that this tool doesn’t support creating senses, so if I understood your example correctly this might not be the best fit for what you want to do.)
