Hello All,

I discussed the matter of Upper Silesian and Lower Silesian as they are 
identified in the Ethnologue with the Ethnologue Editor, sharing with him 
the information provided by the applicant. He reviewed the sources of the 
Ethnologue information. We also did some independent research for English 
language references, finding this reference particularly helpful: Hannan, 
Kevin. 1996. Borders of language and identity in Teschen Silesia. New York 
: Peter Lang. Our conclusion is that a previous editor had, in effect, 
switched the relationships of Upper and Lower Silesian language varieties 
to Polish, German and Czech, mistakenly identifying Upper Silesian as a 
dialect of Polish, rather than Lower Silesian (a conclusion which agrees 
with the submitter's expanded information.

We believe the simplest solution would be to correct the name confusion:
leave the code [sli] as it is and just change the name for [sli] from 
Lower Silesian to Upper Silesian
change the name of the Polish dialect from Upper Silesian to Lower 

If this would cause more confusion than it would resolve (as, for 
instance, with the existing references in Wikipedia), we would 
alternatively propose retiring [sli] 'Lower Silesian' and merging it into 
Polish, and creating a new code element for Upper Silesian (perhaps

Dear Hĺvard Hjulstad,
Thank you very much for your letter.
Our previous letter to you regarded the status of the Slavophone idiom 
(though interlaced with numerous Germanic linguistic loans) of the 
historical region of Upper Silesia, today split between Poland and the 
Czech Republic. Most of the region is located in Poland, where it is 
currently divided between the Voivodeships (Regions) of Opole and Silesia 
(formerly Katowice). In one-third, the latter region is composed from 
historically non-Upper Silesian territories. In the Czech Republic, most 
of its share of historical Upper Silesia is contained within the Kraj 
(Region) of Ostrava.
Upper Silesia is the sole section of historical Silesia, where the native 
population was not expelled after 1945, as it happened in Lower Silesia. 
After World War II, Lower Silesia denuded of its overwhelmingly 
German-speaking population, it was resettled with Polish settlers from 
Central Poland, and Polish expellees from eastern Galicia, incorporated to 
Soviet Ukraine in 1940. Bearing this in mind, the so-called Lower Silesian 
dialect, for all practical reasons, is indistinguishable from standard 
We are writing in regard of the idiom of Upper Silesia. In the 20th 
century, Czech and Polish scholars claimed it as a dialect for Czech and 
Polish, respectively. Earlier, in the 18th and 19th centuries, prior to 
the rise of ethnic Czech and Polish nationalisms, scholars spoke of the 
Silesian language, meaning the Slavic idiom of Upper Silesia (in Lower 
Silesia, German was spoken). In the first half of the 20th century, German 
scholars preferred to designate the idiom of Upper Silesia as ‘Slavic.’
Between 1920 and 1922, historical Upper Silesia was divided among 
Czechoslovakia, Germany, and Poland. In 1938, Germany and Poland seized 
Czechoslovakia’s share of the region. In 1939, Germany incorporated entire 
historical Upper Silesia. In 1945, Czechoslovakia regained its share of 
Upper Silesia, while Poland was granted with Germany’s prewar section of 
the region along other German territories east of the Oder-Neisse line.
The frequent changes of borders rather than making the Upper Silesians 
into Czechs, Germans, or Poles, fortified their own ethnolinguistic 
national identity. In 1919-1922, in Prussian Upper Silesia, the Bund der 
Oberschlesier / Związek Górnoślązaków (Union of the Upper Silesians) with 
half a million members, appealed for autonomous or independent 
nation-state for the Upper Silesians. During the same time, in Austrian 
Upper Silesia, the Schlesische Volkspartei / Śląska Partia Ludowa (Popular 
Silesian Party) appealed for independence for this region or autonomous 
status for it in Germany or Czechoslovakia.
In the interwar period, the expression of the ethnolinguistic national 
identity of the Upper Silesians was possible, though Berlin, Prague, and 
Warsaw gradually suppressed it. At that time, the self-ethnonym ‘Silesian’ 
stabilized for referring to Upper Silesia’s native Slavophone population. 
By extension, they began to refer to their speech as the ‘Silesian 
language,’ as well.
During the communist period, when the orthodoxy of ethnolinguistically 
homogenous Poland and Czechoslovakia obtained, it was impossible to 
express the (Upper) Silesian identity, and cultivate the (Upper) Silesian 
language. When the identificational and linguistic difference surfaced in 
everyday life, the authorities interpreted it as ‘regional’ or 
‘dialectal,’ and as such connected either with the Czech nation and its 
language or the Polish nation and its language. The population concerned 
disagreed, because the speech and customs of ‘Czech’ and ‘Polish’ 
Silesians are practically the same and equally distant from standard Czech 
and standard Polish and national cultures connected to both languages.
In regard of the information given above, please refer to: 
Tomasz Kamusella. 2003. The Szlonzoks and Their Language: Between Germany, 
Poland and Szlonzokian Nationalism (Ser: HEC No 2003/1). Florence: 
European University Institute (also available at 
Tomasz Kamusella. 2006 [Forthcoming]. Silesia and Central European 
Nationalisms: The Emergence of National and Ethnic Groups in Silesia, 
1848-1918. West Lafayette IN: Purdue University Press.
For the first time after World War I, the Silesians could freely express 
their ethnolinguistic national identity following the fall of the 
communist regimes in Czechoslovakia and Poland (1989). In the 1991 
Czechoslovak census, 44,000 persons declared their nationality as 
Silesian. In the 2002 Polish census, 173,000 persons declared their 
nationality as Silesian. From among them, 70,000 persons declared Silesian 
as their language of everyday inter-family communication.
Beginning in the 1990s, numerous publications in the Silesian language and 
bilingual dictionaries of Silesian have been published in Poland and the 
Czech Republic. Due to the sheer demographic size, the Silesian national 
movement has been more vibrant in Poland than in the Czech Republic. In my 
previous message, I enclosed a lengthy list of a representative selection 
of such publications. In this letter I add more.
In 2004, the Polish branch of the EU’s Bureau for the Lesser Used 
Languages registered Silesian as one of the lesser used languages spoken 
in Poland.
I hope that this detailed explanation of the sociolinguistic history and 
situation of the Silesian language will suffice to make it possible for 
you to grant the language with its specific ISO 639 language code.
However, should you need further verification, please advise, what kinds 
of materials and information you may need.

Dear proposers,
Below please find a message that has been sent to the ISO 639 Joint 
Advisory Committee. Committee members would like to have some further 
Please look at the Ethnologue database. The entry is for "Lower 
Silesian"; cd the entry for "Polish", which 
lists "Upper Silesian" as a dialect.
Which of these items (if any) do you mean? If you are thinking of the 
entry "Lower Silesian" in Ethnologue, it is already encoded in what will 
soon be ISO 639-3 with the identifier "sli". We then need to assess 
whether the item should be moved also to ISO 639-2. On the other hand, if 
you mean what in Ethnologue is identified as "Upper Silesian, dialect of 
Polish" we need some further verification as to the basis of encoding this 
as an individual language (as opposed to a dialect of Polish).
Any input would be most welcome.

Dear JAC members,
We need to process the proposal below.
Ethnologue and ISO 639-3 has "sli" = Lower Silesian, with the additional 
info: "Different from Upper Silesian, a dialect of Polish".
The Linguasphere Registry probably indends this item under 53-AAA-cck 
under Polish or 53-AAA-dam under Czech.
If indeed the intended item is "sli", the question would be to move it 
from 639-3 to 639-2. No alpha-2 identifier is proposed.
Discussion please (until 14 April).
