LCC11 — Definitions of Languages in 3166-2 ontology refer to language codes

  • Key: LCC11-8
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Adaptive ( Mr. Pete Rivett)
  • Summary:

    The definitions for ALL the Languages in 639-2 say "Language code for X language", rather than "X language". The question is what to do when it's a family. We don't want to say "Batak languages language". The proposal is to say X family if it's of class LanguageFamily e.g. Batak languages family".

  • Disposition Summary:

    Update skos:definitions for language individuals in 639-2

    The skos:definition will depend on the class of the language individual. Assuming the label is X then the definition will be:
    class IndividualLanguage: X language
    class LanguageFamily: X family
    class RemainderGroup: X remainder group
    class SpecialPurposeLanguageConcept: X special purpose language concept
