Linguist List[edit]

Documentation for the following 240 codes was no longer maintained by Ethnologue as of July 2012. They are evidently not a complete list (see Classical Mandaic).

(The first version of this page listed each by ISO code, if you need them, but lack of AWB access prevented proper conversion.)

Linguist List does NOT "maintain" codes[edit]

Kwami, "Ethnologue" is irrelevant to the "maintenance" of ISO codes, they are different organizations within SIL for different purposes. It doesn't matter whether a language has an Ethnologue entry or not, it's code is fully maintained and active by the ISO authority and should be kept as an ISO code within the template. ISO codes are used for many purposes outside of SIL (libraries, articles, funding, etc.) and to remove that ISO label in the language template messes things up mightily. I've reverting you all over the place, but your stupid bot has created havoc through the language articles and needs to be reversed. These codes are NOT LinguistList codes, they are ISO codes !!! --Taivo (talk) 09:41, 28 July 2012 (UTC)

Which is why I objected to calling them LinguistList codes, which is what you're reverting to.
As they put it, Ethn. and LL maintain the language documentation for the ISO codes. There needs to be someplace that indicates what the codes refer to, and from the ISO documentation it is generally not possible to tell.
Shouldn't be any more 'maintained by LL' notices. We can delete support for that from the template. — kwami (talk) 19:27, 1 August 2012 (UTC)
