ISO 963-6[edit]

Hi Justin,

I see you're adding ISO6 codes to some of the language articles. That's fine when they have no ISO3 code, but I worry it might be problematic otherwise. The people who developed the ISO6 standard are completely ignorant of comparative linguistics, so they aren't a reliable source. The web site is broken, and has been ever since it went up, so it's not a very useful source either. Also, listing several codes without explanation of how they differ, as you did at Xiang Chinese, is not helpful to our readers, nor is repeating the ISO3 code in the ISO6 field. I think it's probably best to be cautious in adding ISO6 codes; maybe you could start a discussion at WP:LANG if you're planning on putting a lot of time into it? (On the other hand, there are cases like Manx, where ISO6 makes a useful distinction between historical and revived Manx.)

Also, please don't remove "none" from the ISO3 field. It's there to indicate that the language is not covered by an ISO code. Removing it will generate errors that will just need to be reviewed and fixed.

Thanks for the reminder, Kwamikagami. I will be more cautious when adding ISO6 codes to articles. Justinrleung (talk)

May 2014[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Hong Kong Cantonese may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "{}"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:
  • of {{IPA|/ŋ/}} coda into {{IPA|/n/}} coda, eliminating contrast between these pairs of finals (except after {{IPA|/ɪ/}} and {{IPA|/ʊ/}}: {{IPA|/aːn/}}-{{IPA|/aːŋ/}}, {{IPA|/ɐn/}}-{{IPA|/ɐŋ/}},
  • {|class="wikitable"
