Please could anybody help with clarifying the meanings of the
following language names from ISO 639-2, and where these languages
are used? If information on population size is also available, that
would be a bonus.

          Code                   Language name
          ~~~~                   ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
          bin                    Bini
          kaw                    Kawi

In addition, what is

          bej                    Beja ?

What is the essential difference between that and Arabic?
Or is Beja different to Bedawi here? Clarifications welcome.

Best regards

John Clews
