Template talk:yih

Latest comment: 10 years ago by -sche

The following information has failed Wiktionary's deletion process.

It should not be re-entered without careful consideration.

WT:AYI says, and practice is, that Yiddish is treated as one language. That being the case, Template:ydd and Template:yih should be deleted (like Template:hbo). - -sche (discuss) 09:35, 17 November 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

First of all: WT:AYI is just me rambling on, and "practice" is just me and about three other editors, none of whom speak better Yiddish than Wikitiki89 (who is yi-1). If someone comes up with evidence I haven't seen, I'll be glad to consider it. However, in the mean time I'd advocate deletion of these, because the vast majority of our entries are in standard Litvish Yiddish, and I don't know the extent of dialectal variation, but I think it can't be too great (considering that Poylish dialect speakers don't seem to far off standard, at least in writing). —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 16:13, 17 November 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]
"Practice" is that neither of these templates are used, which is probably an indicator that deletion is the best option. Mglovesfun (talk) 12:32, 18 November 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Note that there is only one Yiddish Wikipedia and only one Wiktionary, both using the code {{yi}}. - -sche (discuss) 18:49, 19 November 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Well that's because there is only one standard orthography and the non-standard orthographies don't depend on dialect. Regardless, unless we want to split English into American and British, then there is no reason to split Yiddish. Delete. --WikiTiki89 19:03, 19 November 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Deleted (merged into 'yi'). - -sche (discuss) 05:11, 4 November 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
