Saraiki is a language[edit]

I have copied this post, which was left on my talk page, to here as I have advised the editor that he needs to obtain consensus for such a change.
There have been several discussions on this previously, primarily now stored in Archive 2, where the consensus was for dialect, not language.
Any decision can be revisited, but the consensus for change needs to be clear, and it cannot be changed to Saraiki as that is a disambiguation page . - Arjayay (talk) 09:43, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

Can you please rename the article Saraiki Dialect as Saraiki only.

Name[edit]

It is better to name it as "Sireaki dialect" then "Saraiki dialect" in accordance with local pronunciation. SakhiQ (talk) 10:26, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

This is the English Wikipedia, not the local-dialect Wikipedia. Names reflect English usage, not local usage. (Else, for example, Hungarian language would be at "Magyar language".) --JorisvS (talk) 10:34, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

The result of the move request was: not moved. No prejudice against a new RM that makes a primary topic argument. Jenks24 (talk) 09:53, 22 August 2015 (UTC)



Saraiki dialectSaraiki – It should be only Saraiki because many people consider it a language and many consider it a dailect so its name should be neither Saraiki language nor Saraiki dailect until it is proved as language or Dailect 94.99.201.82 (talk) 18:21, 14 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Comment I oppose merging the disambiguation page into a hatnote on this article -- 67.70.32.190 (talk) 05:28, 15 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Comment can you prove this is the WP:PRIMARYTOPIC of the term? Why would the linguisitics topic be primary over the ethnic topics? -- 67.70.32.190 (talk) 05:28, 15 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Comment I oppose almost all linguist on Indo-Aryan languages from Grierson (1903–28) to George Cardona (2014) have classified it as dialect of Lahnda (Westren Punjabi) language along with Hindko dialect and few other dialects. Move will complicate situation. It will give prefrence to etho-political views over scholory work of language professionals. 39.47.43.72 (talk) 17:27, 15 August 2015 (UTC)
