This article is a dictionary defintion, & I cannot see how it will become anything more. I have already moved the material to the article on the language (which is currently a stub, & could benefit from some work). Speedy delete if appropriate.
Keep, add tag and expand. Google results look to me like this is used as a term for an ethnic group. Here's one of them: "If there is no peace in Eritrea it is just because of you. If we ingaged at war it is just because of you guys. Tigrawot have been our enemies since day one". User:KappaKappa 20:32, 10 Feb 2005 (UTC)
Merge and Redirect to Tigrignan language. Sc147 00:07, 11 Feb 2005 (UTC)
Pending - See discussion. Keep and expand. My assumption is that ethnic groups in Ethiopia are distinguished from one another by more than just language. If this is not the case, then merge and redirect to Tigrignan language. One more thing, shouldn't the person who listed this here sign his or her name? I'm not sure a VfD should be started anonymously. OK, I can see your name in the page history, but please consider signing on the page itself. - Gyrofrog 01:09, 11 Feb 2005 (UTC)
Also note there are separate articles for Amhara and Amharic language. Granted, that's a bit different, since many Ethiopians who are not Amhara do speak Amharic. - Gyrofrog 01:23, 11 Feb 2005 (UTC)
Sorry about forgetting to sign my articles. One reason I nominate so few. -- llywrch 18:54, 11 Feb 2005 (UTC)
Merge and Redirect to Tigrignan language. Article will probably stay stubbish at best. Tigrawot only returns 33 Google hits. Megan1967 03:00, 11 Feb 2005 (UTC)
Keep if an ethnic group name, as ethnic groups are inherently notable, and not just for their language. Merge and redirect if Tigrawot simply refers to a speaker of that language though. — Ливай ☺ 03:15, 11 Feb 2005 (UTC)
Keep appears to be an ethnic group in Ethopia and Eritrea. It would be good if we could expand it from a stub. Capitalistroadster 10:21, 11 Feb 2005 (UTC)
Keep I am not a sociologist and do not know any thing on the differences between ethnicity, nationality and the like. What I know is that it is not correct to refer to the Tigray ethnicity as Tigrinya. That was what I edited out from the original entry. The language the Amhara speak is Amharigna (that is, the Amharic language). It would not be correct to refer to the Amhara as Amharigna either.Yewqet 15:02 (GMT) 11 Feb 2005
Comment: viewing the discussion page I feel a tag should be added if kept. Kappa 06:42, 14 Feb 2005 (UTC)
