Lezgin articleEdit


Can you translate and upload the article en:Template:Administrative divisions of Azerbaijan/ru:Шаблон:Административное деление Азербайджана in Lezgin Wikipedia? Since northeastern Azerbaijan, is also part of the original Lezgi homeland with many place names in Lezgin, it is relevant.

  • Hello, I'll do it myself or ask colleagues. Now I'm organizing some contests while Lezgian editors writing articles in scope of another contests, so I think they will have more time in early of January. — Soul Train (talk) 17:51, 20 November 2019 (UTC)
Hello. Thank you for your reply. Karalainza (talk) 18:02, 21 November 2019 (UTC)
Hello. I also wrote to you in Lezgin Wikipedia in case you are interested and have the time, and also to two other users there. Lezgin Wikipedia (which is the case for most Wikipedias in languages that are spoken by less than a million people) looks very inactive. There is no sign of life.

The entire Russian society always "dies" in the first half of January, and you want some activity in a small edition of Wikipedia. — Soul Train (talk) 21:03, 17 January 2020 (UTC)
Sorry, for any misunderstanding and offence I may have caused. I also wrote here, because small Wikipedias, as you pointed out, are seldom active. And I also forgot that the holiday season in Russia extends well into January. I am interested because of the etymological aspect. I am Turkish of Lezgin-Azerbaijani descent (my paternal great-grandmother was Lezgin from Ktslar (Qusar)), hence my interest. Unfortunately, I don't know any Lezgi, and my Azerbaijani is not good either. Karalainza (talk) 09:45, 18 January 2020 (UTC)
