Lexicographical data in Wikidata[edit]

The sister project Wikidata has released a new namespace which has a structure similar to that of Wiktionary. The project is called Lexicographical data in Wikidata and will support Wiktionary with structured data. The first version was deployed in May 2018, and the first lexeme is about a Sumerian noun. The project does not have too many features at the beginning, but these will come with time. Feel free to contribute. You will find further information at d:Wikidata:Lexicographical data.
