I have a wild thought: what if we made a seperate <code>NAMESPACE</code> for Tuvan words.  (See [http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Namespaces Meta] for what NAMESPACEs are.)  Then we could seperate out all the lexical stuff and there would be pages like [[O]] in the main area.  There could be individual pages for words and we wouldn't have to worry about adding them to a list, they would just be there.  Words could be links.  There would be [[Special:Wantedpages|"wanted pages"]] to show when we don't have a word yet.  What do other people think?

Namespaces

I have a wild thought: what if we made a seperate NAMESPACE for Tuvan words. (See Meta for what NAMESPACEs are.) Then we could seperate out all the lexical stuff and there would be pages like O in the main area. There could be individual pages for words and we wouldn't have to worry about adding them to a list, they would just be there. Words could be links. There would be "wanted pages" to show when we don't have a word yet. What do other people think? Robert 10:55, 23 September 2006 (PDT)

I'm not sure I understand what the purpose would be. It is probably more practical to have an online dictionary that can be queried from this wiki. I have the beginnings of one that works from a UNIX command line... --Sborsody 10:06, 25 September 2006 (PDT)
What are the chances of this (or something else) becoming an online resource anytime soon? I have The Tuvan Manual and Let's Learn Tuvan so I want to find a Tuvan dictionary! There's a lot here and I just think we could try to be the online Tuvan lexicon, to help draw people in and be interested in Tuva in general. Robert 21:55, 25 September 2006 (PDT)
