Rfv-sense: Adjective. Looks like use of the noun. The noun is definitely attestable, the verb too, I think, but just barely based on Usenet cites. Have added a Google Book citation to the verb for good measure. Mglovesfun (talk) 23:14, 1 February 2011 (UTC)

I'd actually be interested to see cites for the noun. There is a noun sense that I'm familiar with ("= interwiki link"), but our current noun sense ("The structure, space or network of links between wikis") seems like tosh. If that can't be cited, then by default it makes sense to treat "interwiki" as an adjective. —RuakhTALK 23:52, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
Correct, though I think the plural 'interwikis' gets enough hits, none of them which seem to be verb forms. Oh and see User:Mglovesfun/to do if you're wondering where these nominations come from. Mglovesfun (talk) 00:09, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
Re: "I think the plural 'interwikis' gets enough hits": I'm sorry, but I don't understand your point. I acknowledged that there is a noun sense, but I contend that it's short for "interwiki link", and therefore contest the notion that "interwiki link" is using the noun "interwiki" attributively (since that would be circular and redundant: it implies that "interwiki link" means "interwiki-link link", which means "interwiki-link–link link", and so on). —RuakhTALK 00:32, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
Right, I hadn't actually read the noun sense as I just assumed it said interwiki link. The adjective (or noun used attributively) is much easier to cite than the noun used countably, but IMO it is a noun. Perhaps that's an RFD issue rather than RFV. Mglovesfun (talk) 11:34, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
Eh, we can leave it here for a month to see if anyone provides really compelling adjectival cites, then move it if no one does. RFD discussions, for whatever reason, don't seem to be very conducive to evidence-gathering, nor very responsive to such evidence as is gathered. —RuakhTALK 23:45, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
