Proposal: Language Learning

At first, I wanted to say "MWAHHAHA" and flag this as a duplicate, but looking at your example questions I see what this proposal is all about:

This is about cross-language specifications that either link two languages or talk about rules that exist in more languages than one. Am I right? If not, then I would ask you that how should one distinguish this from other language SEs.

So, I think a better title would really make what you mean more "out-of-the-realm-of-ambiguity".


  • Cross-language communications (From my understanding of the aim of this proposal)
  • Multilanguage learning (From the possible scope of this proposal) And hey, these are what I came up with. You may come up with better titles yourself. The point is, now either the title is a bit vague or this is a duplicate or I'm Tennessee Tuxedo.
  • A duplicate of what?

  • If this proposal isn't for "multi-lingual" purposes, it could easily be closed as a duplicate of one of the language sites, can't it? e.g.:ELL. The title says "language learning", which could easily be understood as "English language learners". Though, so far it's promising.

  • ELL is about learning English. There is no site, to my knowledge, that is about the process of language learning, in general.

  • This isn't a duplicate. That's all. But the title or the excerpt beneath it (what do you guys call it?!) should phrase this more clearly.

  • I'm all in favor of clear descriptions. I'm just not sure what ambiguity you're getting at. Can you clarify your concern?

  • Would something like "Proposed Q&A site for students, teachers, and anyone involved in the process of learning or teaching a new spoken or written language." be more clear?

  • Indeed! I think I'm going to be a real follower of this proposal, I hope.

  • Sounds to me it would be more appropriate as "Linguistics." Jun 9, 2018 at 18:07

I think you may have misunderstood the intention. My intention really is to have a site about all aspects Language Learning. It should include questions from the perspective of the student, as well as the perspective of a language teacher, and informal tutors.

Naturally, this will include questions of language comparison, as this is quite relevant to both teachers and students--especially students who speak, or are learning to speak multiple languages (such as myself).

  • I just think it's a pity it got into commitment with no sample questions about signed languages. Ah well. I'll post some as soon as the site appears. Mar 11, 2016 at 16:56
