Description (last modified by sascha) (diff)
As part of fixing cldrbug:9994 we should make Latin the default script for Ekajuk [eka]. Proposed addition to likelySubtags.xml:
<likelySubtag from="eka" to="eka_Latn_NG"/>
- A language of Nigeria
- Location: Cross River state: Ogoja LGA, Bansara, Nwang, Ntara, Mfom, and Ebanibim towns
- Population: 63,000 (Yoder).
- Dialects: Ebanimbim, Ekagongho, Esham, Mfom. Nnam [nbp] intelligible to Ekajuk. Other Bakor varieties not intelligible unless acquired. Lexical similarity: 93%–97% with dialects, 87%–90% with Nnam [nbp], 63%–67% with Nkem-Nkum [isi], 66%–68% with Abanyom [abm], 57%–59% with Nde-Nsele-Nta [ndd], 52%–53% with Efutop [ofu].
- Language Use: Home, community. All ages. Also use Nigerian Pidgin [pcm]. Used as L2 by Abanyom [abm], Efutop [ofu], Nkem-Nkum [isi].
- Language Development: English [eng] used in schools. NT: 1971–2012.
- Writing: Latin script [Latn], used since 1971.
Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kajuk_language has conflicting information. The infobox mentions that the script for this language is Latin (without pointing to any specific source for this claim), but then the page also writes: “The Ekajuk are one of several peoples who use the nsibidi ideographs.” with a link to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nsibidi (again without citing sources for this statement). Still, it’s probably safe to assume that the Latin script will be more widely used than Nsibidi.
