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"/>

From http://www.ethnologue.com/18/language/eka/:

  • 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.

Assigning to Rick for the change to likelySubtags. (I had tried changing likelySubtags for some other languages, without luck.)
