I do not like this DM because "linguistic entity" is not very clear and it is not widely used to express what this DM is about. A search for this term finds Omegawiki and blogs related to Omegawiki and in the other results the term is not used in the sense of this DM. --Tosca 08:08, 13 April 2009 (EDT) I propose splitting this DM and creating a DM for "language family" and "language". "Dialect" is more difficult since there are no universally accepted criteria to distinguish between language and dialect, so one solution might be to add both attributes to idioms whose status is unclear. --Tosca 08:16, 13 April 2009 (EDT)

Done. --Tosca 00:26, 26 February 2011 (UTC)
