@Bassem Concerning the intelligibility of Modern Standard Arabic, I did not say that Arab people do not understand Modern Standard Arabic at all. What I said is "Due to the existence of False friends between Modern Standard Arabic and Arabic dialects and due to the existence of several morphological particularities within the Arabic dialects, some Arabs can misunderstand some words within a text in Modern Standard Arabic. Adding labels to Wikidata entities will prevent such misunderstandings".

Examples:

  • بندق means pine nut in Tunisian and hazelnut in Modern Standard Arabic
  • بطيخ means melon in Tunisian and watermelon in Modern Standard Arabic
