I am proposing this property so that qualifiers can be used to indicate, e.g., when a spelling was valid or when it became invalid or outdated. See Wikidata talk:Lexicographical data/Archive/2018/06#Spelling variants. IvanP (talk) 17:29, 31 May 2018 (UTC)


  • @IvanP: can you please fill out the fields of the proposal template? See Wikidata:Property proposal/Lexemes for examples. − Pintoch (talk) 09:07, 8 June 2018 (UTC)
  • @IvanP: this still lacks samples.

  • I don't understand why the data type of this is Form. Should't it be MonolingualText? -- Duesentrieb (talk) 11:03, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
    • If the variant is a form, it could work. It depends where it's used.
