User:-sche/missing codes

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

ISO 639 includes 7865 codes; this is a list of those codes which are not present in Wiktionary. Some are intentionally excluded by us or merged by us into other codes, but others are missing by simple oversight, or in some cases because naming conflicts years ago prevented importation.

For a list of codes which the ISO has retired but which Wiktionary still includes, see User:-sche/retired codes. (Items also listed there and in the BP should be struck here.)

For a list of codes which are present in Wiktionary but which should not be, see User:-sche/notlanguages. Also note w:Spurious languages: we currently include and encode some lects which WP thinks may not exist, including Yiddish Sign Language, Parsi 'prp' and Parsi-Dari 'prd'.

special cases (split codes, etc)[edit]

Gbaya[edit]

Gbaya is the name of quite a few languages. 'krs', a Gbaya of Sudan, is able to be called "Kresh". But there is also 'gba', the Gbaya family(!), many of the members of which are called Gbaya. See w:Gbaya languages. 'gba' may need to be split.

sorted by name[edit]

codes to (possibly) delete[edit]

  • Template:mbo, Mbo (Cameroon), is part of a dialect cluster with 'bss' – Akoose, 'bqz' – Kaka (Central Mbo), and 'bsi' – Sosi
  • White and Green Hmong could be merged into e.g. "Laotian Hmong". This could either use one of those lects' codes, or have an exceptional code, e.g. hmn-wgn (White+Green/Njua).

existing codes to (possibly) rename[edit]

  • Indonesian Bajau (bdl) – Sulawesi [Bajaw]
  • West Coast Bajau (bdr) – Sabah West Coast [Bajaw]
  • Mapun (sjm) – Mapun [Bajaw]

langrev functionality[edit]

If you know a language's code (for example, "en") and you want to find out its canonical name, you can use this:

  • {{#invoke:languages/templates|getByCode|en|getCanonicalName}} (returns "English")

If you know a language's canonical name (for example, "English") and you want to find out its code, use this:

  • {{#invoke:languages/templates|getByCanonicalName|English}} (returns "en")

All of these functions are subst:able (type {{subst:#invoke:...).

codes to merge[edit]

  • Merge 'wof' "Gambian Wolof" into 'wo' "Wolof", or rename the latter "Senegalese Wolof"?
