Tonal?[edit]

Is it a tonal language? The article should mention this. Badagnani 07:18, 5 April 2007 (UTC)

See meta:Proposals for closing projects/Closure of Herero Wikipedia[edit]

If anyone here has any Herero proficiency, please take a look at this proposal and at the small Herero encyclopedia itself to see what should be done with this wikipedia (keep it or delete it.) Keeping it implies more than a sentimental commitment ("it would be nice to have a wikipedia in every language ...") but also that it can be something more than a 10 or 20-article spam and vandalism trap and not just "someday" but in the here and now.

Please do not respond here but rather at that discussion (meta:Proposals for closing projects/Closure of Herero Wikipedia). --A. B. (talk) 12:09, 25 May 2007 (UTC)

Wikiherero[edit]

Do these edits represent nonsense? What is "Wikiherero"? Badagnani 09:30, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

I have temporarily reverted these edits pending further discussion. Perhaps these edits are correct in some manner but more importantly:
  • There are no reliable sources cited that meet the requirements of WP:RS.
  • With 50 to 100 speakers, it's unclear that this language would meet the requirements of WP:NN.
  • The infobox that was added described a constructed language ("conlang") based in part on Turkish and English:
{{Infobox Language
|name=Wikiherero Linguak
|caption=Symbol
|image=[[Image:wikihererolinguak.jpg|100px|center|Symbol]]
|creator=Kenan Tugay Koç
|date=[[2007]]
|setting=Improve to [[Herero language]] in Otsiherero Wikipedia
|speakers=50-100 people
|family=[[constructed language]], combining elements of the subgenres [[personal language]], [[international auxiliary language]] and [[logical language]] simultaneously
|posteriori=[[a posteriori language]], with elements of [[English language|English]], [[Turkish language|Turkish]]}}
