Template:aus-wem and other things → Template:xww


The extinct language Wemba-Wemba now has an ISO code ({{xww}}) which uses of aus-wem should be switched to. But xww isn't the only Wemba-Wemba code: the ISO also recently added {{rbp}} (Baraba-Baraba) and {{rnr}} (Nari-Nari), though we haven't added those yet; and {{weg}} and {{xwt}} already existed. Of those four codes, I think {{rbp}} should stay red: Ian Clark, who wrote the Dictionaries of Aboriginal Placenames, considers Baraba-Baraba and Wemba-Wemba "more or less identical languages". And I move to merge {{weg}} into xww: Paul Carter, in Ground Truthing: Explorations in a Creative Region, writes that "the Wergaia and Wemba Wemba languages share ninety per cent of their lexicon". What of rnr and xwt? Australian Languages: Classification and the Comparative Method gives a few samples of Wemba-Wemba compared to Nari-Nari, e.g. WW "midh[v]g" to NN "midhag" (rain, from a root meaning cold). - -sche (discuss) 06:56, 18 February 2013 (UTC)Reply

I've switched all aus-wem and weg entries to xww, left rbp a redlink, and left rnr and wxt untouched for now. - -sche (discuss) 16:20, 2 March 2013 (UTC)Reply
