Exploring linguistic points of view of Wikipedia is a 2011 conference paper written in English by Paolo Massa, Federico Scrinzi and published in WikiSym.

[edit] Abstract

The 3 million articles of the English Wikipedia has been written since 2011 by more than 14 million volunteers. On each article, the community of editors strive to reach a neutral point of view, representing all significant views fairly, proportionately, and without bias. However, beside the English one, there are more than 270 Wikipedias in different languages and their relatively isolated communities of editors are not forced by the platform to discuss and negotiate their points of view. So the empirical question is: do communities on different languages editions of Wikipedia develop their own diverse Linguistic Points of View (LPOV)? To answer this question we created Manypedia, a web tool whose goal is to ease cross-cultural comparisons of Wikipedia language communities by analyzing their different representations of the same topic.
