I see that you have made several contributions relating to "Vietnamese2020", but I see nothing under the word itself to show what it is. How does it differ from regular Vietnamese? Is there any reason why this material should not be merged with regular Vietnamese material? Eclecticology 00:26, 13 May 2004 (UTC)

In his Vietnamese2020 Writing Reform Proposal dchph wrote:
... Vietnamese2020 is a new Vietnamese writing system in the years to come and that should be the way Vietnamese will be written in the year 2020.
In my opion, Vietnamese2020 is significantly different from--or perhaps a bigger set than--Vietnamese. Almost all of Vietnamese2020 entries are not considered as Vietnamese "words". dchph can be said to be the father of Vietnamese2020, and the living authority for a proper description of what it is. Until dchph says otherwise, I think it's safe to enter Vietnamese2020 words separately.

I know I'm a little late in saying this, but Vietnamese2020 is an orthography, not a language. That doesn't mean it can't be included at Wiktionary, since Wiktionary does accomodate multiple orthographies for other languages, such as Norwegian (nynorsk vs. bokmål) and Min Nan (ideographs vs. alphabet). However, Vietnamese2020 doesn't yet have enough popularity to be considered standard Vietnamese orthography, so I'm a bit concerned that others have modified some of your additions so that, for example, kiếntrúc Tâybannha and Phápngữ are listed as normal Vietnamese words – V2020 is nowhere to be mentioned in these entries! I'll try and correct any instances of this.

By the way, if you're ever interested in adding V2020 words to entries at the Vietnamese Wiktionary, please add them right below the part of speech and above the definitions, like so:

'''hóa học''', '''hoá học''' ([[Vietnamese2020]]: '''hóahọc''', '''hoáhọc''')
