About the term Insubric.[edit]

I edited the template and changed the term Insubric to Western Lombard as this last is the term mainly utilised in international linguistic context (see Ethnologue.org for example). The term Insubre has possibly been sometimes used by Italian scholars but on the English Wikipedia I think it is worth to use a more widely accepted term.
On the other hand, the use inside the Western Lombard article of the Italian terms lombardo-prealpino occidentale, basso-lombardo occidentale (literally Western prealpine Lombard and Low Western Lombard) also testify the frequent use also in italian linguistic context of the equivalent italian term.

The most wide accepting (even if Ethnologue isn't God) of Western Lombard than Insubric doesn't cause the ban of the word Insubric, which is also often used. So, the alternative use of the two words is possible.
Of course Ethnologue is not a god, it simply is one of the most reliable reference for linguistic matters online. The term Insubric is not going to be totally banned infact a mention is left in the Western Lombard article. Nevertheless leaving the term Insubric at the same level of the term Western Lombard is not correct as it is not accepted as international term for the language thus it will be removed again from the titles of the articles and templates.
