These pages have codes of macrolanguages; see http://www-01.sil.org/ISO639-3/scope.asp.
In general, LangCom discourages creation of projects (and tests) in macrolanguages, and prefers that projects (and tests) be created in individual constituent languages. That having been said:

  • There are many existing projects in macrolanguages.[Note 1] In general, once there is a project (usually Wikipedia) in a macrolanguage, second and subsequent projects in the same macrolanguage will be allowed.
  • When there is substantial mutual intelligibility between constituent languages of a macrolanguage, LangCom may allow a project to be created in the macrolanguage. Those cases are decided on an individual basis.

Notes[edit]

  1. The ISO 639–3 standard, which first introduced the concept of macrolanguages, was published in February 2007. Many of these projects predate that standard.
