Event Timeline

While I am not opposed to this language code request, @FrancisTyers, I do wonder what plans you have for this lexeme language code and the others you have requested, given that as yet you have not made any edits in the realm of lexicographical data on Wikidata in *any* language (as part of a general absence from Wikidata to speak of) and have not noted anyone who is planning to work with these languages.

@Mahir256 I'm working on a project for language learning using data from Mozilla's Common Voice. I want to make sure all the languages covered by Common Voice are in Wikidata so that I can add words which are then linked to their images, which can then be downloaded/addressed to generate language learning exercises.

I have not yet made any edits because the words I checked in the languages that are there already have pictures (excellent work!). I'm waiting for the new language codes to be added so that I can add words in those languages and link them to the pictures.

Does this answer your question?
