We have discussed Montenegrin before. The most recent discussion was on
the JAC list in Nov. 2007. We said we would take a wait and see approach
to see how the language develops. We did not do a formal ballot.

I can ask this person to submit the form with documentation about each
criterion for defining a new language identifier. I can also tell the
person the same thing I told the last one who asked for Montenegrin
(Gerard Lang)-- see list archives:
But I do keep getting this request. 

Obviously in the message below, the change we made for Serbian and
Croatian have nothing to do with whether Montenegrin gets its own

Subject: Question from Montenegro

Dear Madam/Sir,
Is there a possibility to obtain a provisional language code for Montenegro? Montenegro proclaimed independence in 2006, but the language (Montenegrin) has not been codified yet. The National Library would like to receive from you a language code to be used temporarily until the language is officially named and codified at which point we would request a new language code. The Serbian and Croatian languages were recently awarded their language codes. 
Thank you so much for your time and understanding. 
With best wishes,
Vesna Vuckovic
National Library of Montenegro
