False statementEdit


m["sai-chn"] = {
	otherNames = {"Chana", "Sari"},
	scripts = Latn,

there is a mistake or false statement.

Chaná language is not known by a alternative name "Sari". None reliable sources have even mentioned this supposed name. English Wikipedia it's the cause of the widespread of this mistake. The only "source" which assign this term to chaná language is linguist list, but they wouldn't even know anything about this language neither direct sources about it, and I can say that because they've mistaken it as it would be an african language, when it is not. You can find some sources on chaná language here: w:es:Discusión:Lenguas_charrúas#Sobre_el_chaná. --Zerabat (talk) 22:40, 1 March 2018 (UTC)

I fail to see how an alternative name that does not actually see use could be a problem (and it does account for LinguistList's confusion). We could remove it, though. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 02:49, 2 March 2018 (UTC)
I've removed it. Since there apparently are African languages called Sari, it's probably confusing to leave it in the list of alt names. I would've suggested leaving it as a -- commented-out note about Linguist List's use of it for any future users searching this site for "Sari" in connection with this language, but this discussion accomplishes that just as well. - -sche (discuss) 03:00, 2 March 2018 (UTC)

Addition of Idiom NeutralEdit

Please add the following constructed language. Some Ido words (such as partiso) are borrowed from Idiom Neutral, and it would be good if we could indicate this properly.

m["art-idn"] = {
	"Idiom Neutral",
	type = "appendix-constructed",
	scripts = Latn,

If we only need to cite it in etymologies, I think it'll be sufficient that I now added it as an etymology-only language under the code "und-idn". If you wanted to include entries in the language, even in the appendix space, I think that would need more input/approval, since we've tended to be much less inclusive of little-used / ISO-uncoded constructed languages than of natural languages. - -sche (discuss) 04:39, 24 April 2018 (UTC)
-sche is correct on all counts. You are welcome to create a discussion on adding it to the Appendix at the Beer parlour. As for the code, we've used art- for constructed languages in the past — is that something we should be avoiding, or is it listed in some standard? —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 05:34, 24 April 2018 (UTC)


Please add:

m["nai-ttn-pro"] = {
    otherNames = {"Proto-Totonac-Tepehua"},
	type = "reconstructed",
	scripts = {Latinx},

See Proto-Totonacan for some sources. Thanks, Julia 01:58, 3 May 2019 (UTC)
