Thanks Jeff,

Not sure if you can distinguish between language and script using the query, but that example was probably misleading. The idea was to preserve what is on the instance, even if it is misspelled or uses titles or is abbreviated.

Subject: Re: [BIBFRAME] Extending authorities

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.
