Symbol support vote.svg Support I can see this being very useful for a variety of NLP tasks, plus it makes Wiktionary more machine-readable. Thomas Foster (talk) 11:14, 21 November 2017 (UTC)

  1. Symbol support vote.svg Support. My opinion is as follows. Basically, any ID is fine. The sense "Paris, France" could be "parisfrance" or "paris1" or "propernoun_francecapital" or whatever. But Wikidata already has a database with a consistent ID format, linking each place to additional information and wiki links so we might as well use the Wikidata ID. So Q90 would be the sense ID for "Paris, France" and Q830149 the sense ID for "Paris, Texas". I like that the same ID can be used for all languages, so Dutch Parijs can use "Q90" too.--Daniel Carrero (talk) 18:22, 21 November 2017 (UTC)
