From a general discovery POV, it seems like this case could be handled with a query rather than vocabulary. For example:

SELECT ?authorName
    :instance1 :inLanguage ?bcp47;
        :author ?author .
    ?author :name ?authorName .
    FILTER(LANG(?authorName) = ?bcp47)

I don't know if BIBFRAME is currently recommending BCP47 to describe the language of material, but it's worth considering.
