Nikki added a comment to T215032: Add monolingual language code cmg.

As mentioned on the page linked by @Esc3300 It has to be required for an actual use-case on Wikidata (other than label in officiële taal (P1705) on item for the language itself)
So we need examples of how it's going to be used on Wikidata besides for P1705.

Nikki added a comment to T281669: Frustrating delay between entering a value for a statement and being able to save.

For string properties specifically, this could have gotten worse recently-ish due to T261071: Malformed input error on text which is not malformed: we now send the string to the server for parsing/validation.

I guess we could try to enable the “publish” button earlier, and then saving would just take longer (because it would now wait for that parse API request to complete), but that doesn’t sound like a good idea for all datatypes: e.g. for item-type properties, I don’t think we want to let users enter an arbitrary string, press Enter immediately, and just hope that the right item will be selected…

Nikki added a comment to T284293: Lingua Libre Bot does not add the file to all applicable forms.

It's not hypothetical, it happens in English and German sometimes. Some examples I can think of for English are "read" (present versus past tense), corps, chassis, chamois (singular versus plural). For German I recently started a list of homographs I've come across (I still have quite a few to add), which includes some on the same lexeme. For Japanese, it depends on how it will be modelled, but most kanji have multiple pronunciations so there's definitely potential there for a lexeme to have multiple pronunciations for the same spelling.

Nikki added a comment to T200689: Add “language required by this lexeme” constraint type.

As implemented in this change, the constraint is enabled by default in all context types: main snak, qualifier, references. I think this could be sensible (does it make sense to use, say, a Duden ID in a reference on an English lexeme?), but I figured I’d mention it here in case someone (especially Lydia) thinks otherwise.

Nikki added a comment to T262269: Make Serbian (sr-el) language available for terms (labels/descriptions/aliases).
Some findings:

As @Nikki commented, Termbox receives the code sr-latn, but Wikibase does not recognize it as a content language, therefor it's not visible in the termbox.
Wikibase uses MediaWiki's LanguageNameUtils to get a list of content languages. And from what I can tell the utils read from Names.php which is a list of language codes and their names. That list currently does not contain sr-latn but rather sr-el (see https://github.com/wikimedia/mediawiki/blob/master/languages/data/Names.php#L422). There are some mapping mechanisms which turn sr-el into sr-latn but that is of no use to us since we send sr-latn to the language util.

The only fix I could find (see the above gerrit change) is to add sr-latn to this Names.php list. I'm not sure that's the right place to solve the problem so I'll wait for a review from some WMF language people.

I don't think language fallback explains the behaviour I'm seeing here since I was using English at the time I originally reported this (I switched to British English more recently). But now that you mentioned it, I just tried switching back to English and searching for "singu" is actually still failing when the UI language is set to English, even though it works for British English and the item has the same label for both. "sg" and "nt" don't work even when the language is set to English.

And the next one: transliteration has some constraints for what type of items it can be used on. Those constraints apply to usage on items and do not make sense applied to lexemes. Since I can't restrict those constraints to items, the only way I could resolve the constraint violations they were creating was to remove the constraints entirely.

Nikki added a comment to T272242: Language code "dag" for Dagbani does not work for lexemes.

The way it's designed to work, codes which are added for labels are automatically available for monolingual text and lexemes too, but codes which have been added for monolingual text have to be added for lexemes separately (and vice versa). So, looking at the dates, I don't think it's related since that ticket is from before dag was added for labels. Back then it was working the way it was designed to, now it isn't.

Nikki added a comment to T269070: Middle click paste of a gloss language code is not correctly detected (causing the gloss to be discarded/deleted).

I noticed that the dropdown is the same one used for monolingual text languages and - indeed - the one for monolingual text has the same problem with the language code not being detected on middle click paste. Although, thankfully, it's much less destructive there, since it mostly doesn't allow saving when it thinks a field is empty.

Nikki added a comment to T124758: [Story] Show all available languages in monolingual text value's suggester.

There are even a bunch of languages we can add labels for which don't show up in the list, despite not being explicitly excluded, e.g. aa, cho, dag, es-419, ho, hz, ng, rn, shi-latn, uz-cyrl, uz-latn...

In the interest of not having this stalled indefinitely, I've removed the request for az-arab from this ticket.

It can also cause existing glosses to be deleted if you try to change the language:

This just happened to me with nrf-je which is one of the language codes which doesn't appear in the dropdown at all, so there's no distinction between a successfully detected language code and one where it will silently discard your new gloss. :(
