Dear Rebecca, et al., There was some discussion about this request, but I did not see a resolution. Is this being added to part 2? Also, does an added name need to be registered for it in part 3? If so, I will put through the paperwork. Thanks for your help in this. Melinda Lyons ISO 639-3 RA SIL International 7500 W. Camp Wisdom Rd.

We maintain the MARC 21 documentation in French so we were asked by Sarah Cunningham of the First Nations Public Library about adding a code to the language code list. The community prefers the name "Oji-Cree" over the name favoured by linguists "Severn Cree."
