Hello Sajasazi. Thanks for the message. And apologies for adding to your workload -- I've just logged on now to fix the mistakes I introduced yesterday, cause I discovered their source (or so it seems to me), and I can see that you have already fixed them for me -- thank you聽:-)

And indeed, I don't know Gothic as such though I have some command of Old English and I have studied the history of Germanic to some (modest) extent. And I've done some work on the history of Polish, too, which, as I can see now, also figures when one tries to parse Gothic, as it has a slightly "Slavic" flavour to me, though this statement probably misrepresents the historical facts and the direction of influence (not sure). Anyway, I don't have problems understanding simple sentences. The language has an incredible charm to me, I recall that as a student I used to think that it was such a horrible pity that it died out, the only one in its branch. I do hope this project continues, and I'll try to help at least by adding interwiki or just by being here and adding to the number of users. And I promise to be more careful next time聽:-)

Best wishes, Bansp 17:15, 12 February 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for the encouragement. Currently, I'm rather overloaded with work, but I'll try my hand at something simple after I've gone through the basic documents on the language. As I'm looking closer at it, I am starting to wonder where my feeling of its similarity to Slavic came from. Maybe I simply came across some familiar roots. As far as I recall, Gothic was one of the channels of borrowing Germanic words into Slavic, and it surely might/should have worked the other way round. The genetic points of contact weren't probably as close as you say (it seems to me, when I vaguely recall the satem/kentum split and the Indo-European tree). Anyway, I'll make sure to read up on that (pointers welcome, in case you come across any).

Just one more thing -- I'm wondering about neologisms: have you tried to use words from the Busbecq report (described at en:Crimean Gothic language)? Is there a meta page with Gothic neologisms that you guys came up with and that could be used by others? Thanks, Bansp 02:20, 14 February 2006 (UTC)

Thx for article. Look: http://pl.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Kur%C3%B3w_%28powiat_pu%C5%82awski%29&action=history. In Poland the smallest city has under 1000 people and in Norway cities are already 200 people!! Kur贸w is a village but lost city rights on stupid idea. Pietras1988 13:52, 18 February 2006 (UTC)

Bonjour Sajasazi聽! I know that you are an expert scholar in the Gothic language; Can you please kindly help me create a stub for this article which is based on the French article. 1-3 lines would be sufficient enough. Your help would be gratefully appreciated. Merci. (I do not know what the correct Gothic title should be) -- Joseph, 07:54 Monday 27 March 2006 (UTC)

Thankyou so much Sajasazi for the excellent quality article! I am very grateful of your help. May Gothic wikipedia prosper! -- Joseph, 10:32 Sunday 2 April 2006 (UTC)

I have completely respected that you want this to be a biscriptal Wikipedia, because I suppose that makes sense.

However, in the long history of the Gothic language, two scripts predominate: Runic, and Wulfilas' alphabet.

Now, I respect you having pages in Latin. But I cannot respect you trying to make the entire interface of this Wikipedia in Latin. It is wrong, it is not really Gothic. Goths did not use this alphabet to write their language. --Node ue 18:58, 14 March 2006 (UTC)

Where do you get the strange idea that Gotophiles won't know the Gothic alphabet? Probably everybody at gothic-l knows Wulfilas' alphabet! The only people who won't know the Gothic alphabet, are people who don't know the Gothic language, and they won't be able to read it anyway!!! --Node ue 21:09, 22 March 2006 (UTC)
User-selectable software auto-transliteration between Latin, the Gothic alphabet and Runic would be the way to settle this, like what is done on the Chinese and Serbian Wikipedias. There will be people who would rather read and work on this edition with each script and that would permit it. G0th007 15:12, 26 March 2006 (UTC)

Thats All. This sentences help us make STUB article about Polish cities. Best Regards Stimoroll

Hails Sajasazi. W盲rest du bitte so lieb und k枚nntest checken, ob meine deklination von "gutanerazda" korrekt ist: http://af.wiktionary.org/wiki/%F0%90%8C%B2%F0%90%8C%BF%F0%90%8D%84%F0%90%8C%B0%F0%90%8C%BD%F0%90%8C%B4%F0%90%8D%82%F0%90%8C%B0%F0%90%8C%B6%F0%90%8C%B3%F0%90%8C%B0. Das w盲re echt lieb!!

Gibt es die m枚glichkeit ein gotisches "i" mit zwei punkten oben zu schreiben?

Vielen, vielen dank!!!!!聽:)) --84.114.144.54 08:30, 19 June 2006 (UTC)
Du sagst, es g盲be den ausdruck "gutrazda" nicht, aber es gibt die form "Gut镁iuda" f眉r goten (anstatt Guta镁iuda). Wieso denn dann nicht auch gutrazda f眉r gutarazda?. Und zum "i" mit zwei punkten? Kann man das hier schreiben? Liebe gr眉脽e http://af.wiktionary.org/wiki/Gebruiker:Manie --84.114.144.54 13:00, 19 June 2006 (UTC)
Laut dem "Grammar of the Gothic Language" von Joseph Wright (und auch in anderen b眉chern) steht auf s. 5: The Gothic character "餅" (茂) was used at the beginning of a word and medially after a vowel not belonging to the same syllable, thus 餅嬶澇餄筹澗餄 (茂ddja I went); 餅嗭瀭餄帮瀷餅勶澒餄 (fra茂ti镁 he devours)." Leider erscheinen die buchstaben der normalen gotischen fonts bei mir im word nicht auf, d . h. sie sind unsichtbar, nur im internetexplorer (mozilla) f眉r mich zu sehen. Um gotisch zu schreiben, habe ich mir daher die einzelnen buchstaben von wikipedia kopieren m眉ssen, und "茂" fehlt mir noch. Was bei mir im word jedoch funktioniert ist "Alphabetum unicode", aber ich glaube, dies verwendet man hier in der wikipedia nicht, oder irre ich mich da? In Alphabetum unicode lauten die zwei "i"s: 餅 und 餄. Falls du willst, kann ich dir die seite aus der grammatik von Wright scannen und mailen.

K枚nntest du vielleicht so lieb sein und mir das 茂 in Code 2001 heraussuchen und hier reinzuschreiben? W盲re ganz toll! Lg http://af.wiktionary.org/wiki/Gebruiker:Manie --84.114.144.54 08:41, 20 June 2006 (UTC) Sorry, ist s聽%, nicht 6: ([1]). K枚nntest du daher mir hier "茂" in Code 2001 (oder den font halt, den du hier zum gotisch schreiben verwendest) hereinschreiben? Danke!!! Leider erkennt mein browser nicht die "schriftzeichen", die du siehst, anstatt 餅嬶澇餄筹澗餄,.... Lg http://af.wiktionary.org/wiki/Gebruiker:Manie --84.114.144.54 11:17, 20 June 2006 (UTC)

Hast du eigentlich alphabetum unicode? Wenn nicht, maile ich es dir! manielombard@hotmail.com.
Leider stimmt die e-mail-adresse, die du mir gabst, nicht聽:((( Habe dann auch anstatt "sajasaze" die form "sajasazi" auch genommen, aber dies stimmt auch nicht聽:(( Laut http://www.travelphrases.info/gallery/Test_PUA.html muss 茂 "U+F78B" sein. http://af.wiktionary.org/wiki/Gebruiker:Manie --84.114.144.54 21:23, 20 June 2006 (UTC)
Hoffe, du konntest jetzt meine mail erhalten: Hier die Code 2001 variante: 餅. 900 ist noch 餅, aber 90 finde ich nicht. Du etwa? http://af.wiktionary.org/wiki/Gebruiker:Manie --84.114.144.54 09:45, 21 June 2006 (UTC)

Greetings, Sajasazi. I found this Wikipedia a while ago and became very interested in the Gothic language. I'm having trouble, however, in learning it. Would you consider sharing your experiences and providing any tips? I would greatly appreciate it.

I also want to let you know that I replaced Image:Netherlands flag large.png with the svg version from Commons. The former is redundant.

Gothic MediaWiki messages imported into Betawiki 饜尮饜尳饜尲饜尠饜尮饜尦饜尨饜尮

Hi Sajasazi. I see that you have contributed to the messages in the namespace MediaWiki. Thank you for that. As Gothic did not yet have any generic messages in MediaWiki (only on this wiki), we imported the messages from Special:Allmessages into betawiki:. Betawiki also supports the translation of messages for 117 extensions, with over 1,600 messages. I would like to invite you to join the Betawiki community and help improve MediaWiki localisation for the languages you are able to contribute to.

If you have any further questions, please let me know on my talk page on Betawiki. We will try and assist you as much as possible. You can also find us on the Freenode IRC network in the channel #mediawiki-i18n where we would be happy to help you get started.

Thank you very much for your attention and I do hope to see you on Betawiki soon! Cheers! Siebrand@Betawiki 00:16, 17 December 2007 (UTC)
