Category:Language articles citing Ethnologue 16

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This tracking category is triggered by entering "e16" in the ref field of the language infobox. Most should be updated to the Ethnologue 17 population figure or to another reference.

There are a couple reasons why an old ref may be desired: In the case of several Indian languages, E17 conflates a large fraction of speakers with Hindi. An undated population figure or extinction may have been copied over since E16 (but not E15), and the out-of-date citation will provide some indication of how dated the figure is, or a date for the last speakers may be given. In several cases, there are errors in the E17 entry, such as a 1983 citation being attributed to "SIL 2011" in a language which may be extinct, or a missing or corrupted date.

An article may also appear here because a broken link to E16 was "fixed" by reverting the article rather than updating it.

[updated 2013, w 40 remaining articles. if there are more now, it may be that people are reverting to fix broken cross-references. The 40:
