Showcase lexemes

Showcase lexemes on Wikidata are lexemes that fully represent what Wikidata is capable of and displays in full detail the data that can be stored on Wikidata and then eventually used in every Wikimedia project and outside of Wikimedia.

A showcase lexeme should show the full capabilities of Wikidata. Therefore, a basic guideline criteria is suggested below, which each showcase lexeme should preferably follow:

Current ShowcaseEdit






Proposed for ShowcaseEdit

  • Polska (L9751) - lacks attestation of forms in actual texts, seems like a copy of another dictionary, not a Showcase of Wikidata compilation The preceding unsigned comment was added by Jura1‎ (talk • contribs).
    there is no need for attestation in regular flexion; attestation in another dictionary is enough, dictionary is best linguistic source The preceding unsigned comment was added by KaMan (talk • contribs).
    this is not a place to copy other dictionaries. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Jura1 (talk • contribs).
    Either somehow prove it it is a copy or stop talking about this. You probably do not understand how languages with excesive regular inflexions works. Two dictionaries must have identical sets of forms because they represent the same regularity in the same language. It is not a copy at all. KaMan (talk) 13:32, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
    It seems we probably don't understand how attestation works in the same way. In a recent discussion, the ease of inclusion of attestations was seen as a key advantage of Wikidata lexemes over Wiktionary and others.
    Anyways, I don't see how copy or non-copy identity with a single source is going to showcase any Wikidata advantages over print dictionaries or Wiktionary. If people are interested in another dictionary, they might as well follow the link there. --- Jura 13:53, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
    I think I understand what attestation is but don't understand why independent dictionary can't be source of attestation. Anyway if this dictionary is problem for you I have switched with attestation to Polish National Text Corpus. KaMan (talk) 11:17, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
  • вода (L189) - needs usage examples and attestation
  • main (L813) - (French) has a large number of senses defined
  • see (L185) - English simple irregular verb with good collection of senses
