Dear colleagues,

I agree, but sooner or later we will be faced with the problem of 
- sequence of language names/synonyms (by importance? authoritativeness? by
what else? - and maybe even since when?)
- quasisynonymy
- preferred vs. admitted vs. deprecated (for what reason?).

In any case ALL synonyms must be duly recorded.

Best regards
Christian

Does anyone object to adding Pashto as an alternate name? I'm surprised it
isn't there already.

Hello,
I am mailing about correcting the English spelling of Pashto language. I saw
on your website that you recognize Pashto as Pushto, which is incorrect. The
correct and most authentic spelling of Pashto is "Pashto" in Enlgish. I hope
you will change it to "Pashto" or at least add "Pashto" spelling too.

Every company, application, website and common people use "Pashto" not
"Pushto". For example, Pashto wikipedia (ps.wikipedia.org), BBC Pashto (
www.bbcpashto.com), Voic Of America Pashto
(www.voa.com\pashto<http://www.voa.com/pashto>),
Pakhtosoft (www.pakhtosoft.com), Pashtosoft (www.pashtosoft.com), AfghanIt (
www.afghanit.net), alekozai (www.alekozai.com), Radio free (
azadiradio.com\pashto), pashtoword (pashtoword.bravehost.com), tolafghan (
tolafghan.com), talafghan (talafghan.com), hewad (hewad.com)..etc.etc... I
can also provide more references, if needed.
