I am Canadian[edit]

Do we need this for all ethnicities in the world? We have Appendix:I am (ethnicity) already. -- Liliana 18:00, 11 October 2011 (UTC)

I think the point (of having it) is that we're to have it for all anglophone ethnicities, not all ethnicities: see [[Appendix talk:I am (ethnicity)#Deletion debate]]. (Somewhat relevant also is [[Appendix talk:I am (ethnicity)#Canadian is not primarily an ethnicity]].)​—msh210 (talk) 18:15, 11 October 2011 (UTC)
Keep if we must have a bloody phrasebook. You're just showing one of the reasons why mixing this stuff with a general-purpose dictionary is very stupid indeed. Equinox 22:08, 11 October 2011 (UTC)
Delete, no added value. Wiktionary's mission is "every word in every language", not "every phrase". --Hekaheka 04:53, 12 October 2011 (UTC)
Delete - as above. SemperBlotto 07:45, 12 October 2011 (UTC)
Delete but I suggest to keep at least one complete example - I am English, no offense to other nationalities/ethnicities. I chose "English" without any bias, perhaps because it's the English Wiktionary. The effort to replace "English" with anything else - "Canadian", "Mexican", etc. is minimum, although can also cause problems like using adjectives where a noun is required or incorrect ending or gender, etc. For example Polish uses instrumental case to make this phrase - Anglik -> Anglikiem m, Angielka -> Angielką f. --Anatoli 22:59, 17 October 2011 (UTC)
Keep. --Yair rand 16:02, 25 October 2011 (UTC)
