VladimirAlexiev added a comment to T211177: WDQ UI should support download of RDF formats.

@Peb will this work in a streaming fashion? I know WD has a 60s timeout but still it can produce some 10-100 megabytes in that time. Will the JS approach be reliable enough ?
It's also important to be able to get Turtle, using all available prefixes, which is a lot more readable than ntriples.

Use construct when you want to get an rdf graph out of the repo, especially when you want the data to be shaped differently or to use ontology terms different from the original

VladimirAlexiev added a comment to T155425: Add monolingual language code phn (Phoenician).

@GerardM The IANA language tag list has a subfield Script exactly because languages can be written in different scripts.
Neither you nor I could write a single word in Phoenician script. Yet we could write a Phoenician word in English and be able to read it, and pronounce it approximately correctly.
This is valuable, no matter if you acknowledge it or not.

That is false. Gades is a Phoenician word, even if used in an English or Spanish text. The corresponding English word is Cadiz and the Spanish word is Cádiz.

Agree with @PKM: the name is "Gades"@phn-Latn, "Cadiz"@es and I guess "Cadiz"@en.
@Lydia_Pintscher will you name the language "Phoenician (Transliterated)"? The Getty does that, search for Chinese in that page and you'll see eg

		............................ Chinese (transliterated Hanyu Pinyin) (language)
		............................ Chinese (transliterated Pinyin) (language)
		............................ Chinese (transliterated Pinyin without tones) (language)
		............................ Chinese (transliterated Tongyong Pinyin) (language)
		............................ Chinese (transliterated Wade-Giles) (language)

This returns False, which I believe is a bug in Blazegraph

Can you point to the encoding rules so we do the same before querying. Sparql's encode-for-uri encodes everything except upper- and lower-case letters A-Z, the digits 0-9, HYPHEN-MINUS ("-"), LOW LINE ("_"), FULL STOP ".", and TILDE "~". See https://www.w3.org/TR/xpath-functions/#func-encode-for-uri.

Ok, this works and returns 18650 rows as expected:

I want to use federation from an external repo (as the descr says "another repo").
You can test the bug either using an external repo, or self-federation.

phn means "Phoenician in Phoenician script" but the example given is in Latin script, thus it is phn-Latn.

VladimirAlexiev added a comment to T155425: Add monolingual language code phn (Phoenician).

https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Project_chat#Phoenician_language: according to the IANA lang tag list, the default script for this language is "Phnx" Phoenician but the example there is given in Latin transcription so shoul de denoted like "gadir"@phn-Latn.

  • To capture this, I believe you should register a lang tag phn-Latn with name eg "Phoenician (Latin transcription)".
  • The tag phn should be used only if you install Phoenician script (alphabet) in the language tools; and somehow direct the user to select "Phoenician (Latin transcription)" if they intend to enter a transliterated label
