Two tags are relevant here, and . Full tag wiki excerpts:

language: For questions about the written or spoken language of a world.

written-material: For questions about written material itself. (Books, newspapers, etc.) For questions about writing systems, use [language].

I'm proposing a tag synonym to be synonymized to . Doing so would likely mean that we don't need the second sentence in the written-material tag wiki excerpt, as a substring match on writ will show both.

  • $\begingroup$ So you don't want to change anything about the existing tags, just add a new one to be synonymous with language? Because that does seem like a good idea to me. $\endgroup$ Dec 12, 2016 at 14:38
  • $\begingroup$ @DaaaahWhoosh Exactly. Keep our current tags exactly as they are, add a synonym to make one of them more discoverable, and maybe edit out the then-largely-unnecessary pointer to the other tag in the wiki excerpt. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ There have been no objections, so I went ahead and created the synonym. Great idea. $\endgroup$
