Hi, 

 

language information could be an interesting tag for tourist places, schools, etc. 

 

but I think that this method is not the best one. 

 

I’d expect something like: 
language=eo 

 

Or with multiple languages

language=en;de;fr;es;eo

 

language:signs=en;de;fr

language:spoken=de;en

language:menu=cn;en

Betreff: [Tagging] esperanto=yes

 

Hi,

 

Today user przem started to add esperanto=yes to two kinds of objects

- streets named after Zamenhof (creator of it)

- schools which presumably use or teach it

 

For the first case it would be correct to tag name:etymology:wikidata=Q11758

 

But how about the second case?

esperanto=yes seems too vague to be useful, and is a precedent (I didn't see english=yes etc. being used). It seems to be a catch-all for everything related to esperanto, not unlike your typical hashtags in social media.

 

Michał
