Wikidata now covers general purpose data about a huge number of concepts in the world in order to support Wikipedia, its sister projects and projects outside Wikimedia. Work is also underway to support data about multimedia files on Wikimedia Commons. One large field that we still want to cover is lexicographical data - data about words. In this talk you'll learn about the current state of the project, the opportunities lexicographical data in Wikidata opens up especially for small languages and how you can help.
