I agree with Peter,
 
...but the question has to be raised (again), whether we will need rules
for the sequence in which we order variant names (and qualifiers
concerning their status / use / additional info...) -->should be a topic
of our next telecon...
 
Best regards
Christian

I think we all agree that we don’t code name differences.

The first reference listed, the Wikipedia article, indicates that "Mahl"
is the same as "Dhivehi" or Maldivian, and is a variant name used for
political motivations: 

"It is practically the same as or mutually intelligible with Divehi
Language, the official language of Maldives, but differentiated in name
for political reasons." 

Dhivehi by any other name ought to still be [div].

ISO 639 proposal - Mahl - discussion

 


 

 




Dear JAC members, 
  
We have received the proposal to include both alpha-2 and alpha-3
identifier for Mahl. Please see the original proposal below. 
  
Ethnologue and ISO 639-3 lists Mahl as a variant name for Maldivian
(identifier "div"). 
  
The Linguasphere Registry lists "mahl" as a variant name for "dhivehi"
(59-ABA-aa) (= "Maldivian"). 
  
As to identifiers: The alpha-2 "ma" in available, in case we should
decide to include Mahl in the alpha-2 table. The proposed alpha-3
identifier "mah" is not available. There are in fact very few free
identifiers starting with m, and no obvious one at all. If we want to
assign an identifier starting with m, I suggest "muf" (simply because
all better choices are already taken). 
  
Discussion please (until 14 April). 
  
Best regards, 
Håvard Hjulstad 
  
(PS: This message has been copied to the proposer for information. He
will not be able to submit to the email list. Should he wish to add any
information, he may do so directly to me, and I shall forward it to the
list.)
