From Wikimedia Incubator

General description[edit | edit source]

zza is the macrolanguage code for Zaza (or Zazaki). The macrolanguage encompasses the individual languages coded diq and kiu. Supposedly, these represent

  • Dimli, or Southern Zazaki (diq) and
  • Kirmanjki, or Norther Zazaki (kiu).

In principle, one could easily enough deal with that. But unfortunately, the terminology seems to overlap quite a bit:

  • The SIL page describes the "macrolanguage" as having the alternate names Dimli and Kirmanjki.
  • The diq projects—both Wikipedia in diq (sic) and tests here on Incubator—describe themselves as being in "Zazaki". And certainly the Wikipedia project describes itself on its main page as covering "Zazaki (Kurdish, Kirmanjki and Dimli)".
  • The kiu tests describe themselves as being in Kirmanjki (the only part of this that is unambiguous)
  • There are a couple of closed zza tests here, but the open tests in zza describe themselves as being in "Standard Zazaki".
  • It's not clear all these aren't mutually intelligible, anyway.

Wikipedias[edit | edit source]

  • LangCom rejected the "Standard Zazaki Wikipedia" (Wp/zza) because Wikipedias or tests exist in both constituent languages.
  • This leaves us with two other Wikipedia projects:

Wiktionaries[edit | edit source]

  • LangCom rejected the "Zazaki Wiktionary" (Wt/zza) on technical grounds back in 2007. But based on the more recent rejection of the Wikipedia, it seemed unlikely that this test would ever be approved. So the few pages here were deleted after an RfD.
  • This leaves:

Other test projects[edit | edit source]

There are four other tests coded with diq (and called "Zazaki"):

Only the Wikivoyage project was edited in the last thirty days (around 39 edits) (as of 14:23, 31 October 2019 (UTC)).
