Oops, that was opened in june 2016, so more 2 years and half, not one year, and the property link seem to be wrong.

I opened T215032 to ensure that cmg will not fall in void, as this one.

Just a little tip, on firefox, go to about:config, then search for the browser.urlbar.decodeURLsOnCopy option and change it from false to true, this is essential for non pure-english characters (aka any accent or other char from any other language using latin script or any other script, so the url) :

I agree with you on the point that Phags'pa is only a writing of the Yuan dynasty, the official language is at this time Khalkh or it's classical Mongolian version.

So 2 years and 3 month later we are still at the same point ? Is it so hard to add several ISO639-3 mongolian codes for traditionnal mongolian script ?

This is why for we need both cmg (where default is Mong), khk-Mong (where default today is Cyrl) and mvf (where default is Mong). If language can vary on cmg, there are some texts that are classified as cmg and is used (and needed as source) in Wikipedia.

Mong is for uiyghur-mongolian script. Classical mongolian, use this script, not soyombo or Phags-pa. Phags-pa was only used about 1 century. -Mong is probably not needed for this.

Could you also add cmg (classical mongolian), that is classed as individual) by default it uses Mong script. and khk-Mong ?

After ethnologue, eng, is only for England English and some variants around the world, not US/canadian english, but still U.S. Virgin Islands and Jamaica in America.

  • mn is used as language for standard mongolian in wikipedia (mn.wikipedia.org, tag in wikidata, so if it's not valide, this should be removed.
  • https://www.ethnologue.com/language/mvf for ethnologue, mvf, is only a geographical distinction, mvf is for china, mainly because in china they don't use cyrilic script for writting mongolian, but on some border cities with outer mongolia like Erenhot (chinese + mongolian script + cyrillic mongolian) https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Erenhot_port.jpg On North-East of inner mongolia, (Manzhouli, and lot of cities in Hulunbuir, russian in cyrillic is used instead).

About several writings for a language, in chinese, there is zh-Hani (hanzi in general), zh-Hant (traditionnal hanzi), zh-Hans (simplified hanzi) and the same thing for Gan Chinese (gan-Hant & gan-Hant).

mn doesn't referer to mongolian as a macrolanguage but as a language, khalkha is the recognized standard dialect of the mongolian language. other mongolian languages are buriat (bua) or oirat (xal).

In my opinon, as a very beginner in mongolian language, every written words I seen in dictionaries (old one like Lessig or current one), seems to match with mvf one I seen on fr.wiktionary, wrote by a french in inner-Mongolia. (China), I learned with the pronunciation of Ulanbaatar (khalkha), as that's the only one available on methods in Europe, exchanged most with few friends from this city in France).

In language code, first part is language, second part is script (Mong|Han|Latn|Arab...) and the third the country, here CN (China), MN (Mongolia).... The traditional Mongolian script is mainly used in Inner-Mongolia (China), but is since few year recognized again as official language in (outer) Mongolia. it is also used in Buryatia and Kalmykia (where this should probably be respectively bua-Mong, xal-Mong, Mongolian sub-languages using uyghur-mongolian script).

I don't really understand what to do, perhaps what I said was missunderstood. I only want to said than I filled some wikidata items as turk (tr) instead of otk (old turk) as this didn't exists.

There is already vertical script on at least fr/zh/en pages. That's well supported by most browser today.

This is blocking bug, mn (mongol) != mnc manchu, a toungouse language, not a mongolian one, but near rules or writting and same script familly, so this allow to display nicely text, but information is erroneous. We have a lot of mnc entries name on wikipedia (fr/en/zh mainly).
