Some of us surely know and some others of us probably are not aware but there is a "Languages" proposal for Stack Exchange on Area 51 too.
There has been some discussion about our scope, some arguably off-topic questions, and the lack of research level linguistics questions.
There would obviously be quite a bit of overlap between a Languages site and the Linguistics site if both come into existence and because of this there has already been controversy on Area 51 about whether the two proposals should be one.
So now that Linguistics is in beta I'd like to ask the thoughts of the other contributors on this topic.
Do you think our scope is too narrow and should be broadened to include the Languages proposal?
Would more language questions that are not strictly linguistics be good or bad?
It's worth bringing up overlap with proposed language-specific sites too. Many of them have very few followers and some of them are already in beta or not far off going into beta.
Should we accept linguistics questions that pertain to a language with its own site?
Should we accept linguistics questions that pertain to a language with a proposed site?
If we are to focus just on linguistics the individual sites will have a broader scope as far as their language is concerned. But if we decide to (or if Stack Exchange decided for us) to broaden to linguistics & languages then all of their questions would also be on topic here.
Of course we can migrate any question to a specific language site or overall languages site when such sites go live and we might decide to have them here in the meantime "just to be nice".
What does everybody here thing? And please feel free to bring up any questions already on the site as examples.
