We have discussed Montenegrin before. The most recent discussion was on
the JAC list in Nov. 2007. We said we would take a wait and see approach
to see how the language develops. We did not do a formal ballot.
I can ask this person to submit the form with documentation about each
criterion for defining a new language identifier. I can also tell the
person the same thing I told the last one who asked for Montenegrin
(Gerard Lang)-- see list archives:
But I do keep getting this request.
Obviously in the message below, the change we made for Serbian and
Croatian have nothing to do with whether Montenegrin gets its own

Subject: Question from Montenegro
Is there a possibility to obtain a provisional language code for Montenegro? Montenegro proclaimed independence in 2006, but the language (Montenegrin) has not been codified yet. The National Library would like to receive from you a language code to be used temporarily until the language is officially named and codified at which point we would request a new language code. The Serbian and Croatian languages were recently awarded their language codes.
Thank you so much for your time and understanding.
With best wishes,
National Library of Montenegro
