Could we please expedite voting on this one? Someone at the Library of
Congress is waiting for it.

The last comment was on Jan. 17 indicating that this is really more a
macro-language. I don't still have it in my email but it may be accessed
at:

If there aren't more comments, could Havard please send to the JAC for
balloting?

I would propose that we retain the identifier "diq" (proposer asks for "zaz", which is used for a different language in 639-3).

From my various initial researches it does appear to be considered a distinct language, related to Kurdish and Persian, but having its own identity. Among other sources, the Wikipedia lists the Zazaki language, and there's an LC subject heading for Zaza language. There is no MARC code for the language, however, and I would like to propose that one be added.
