Add Bashkir collation

Reported by: aaharoni@… Owned by: markus
Component: collation Data Locale: ba
Phase: rc Review:
Weeks: Data Xpath:



Collation for the Bashkir language (ba) must be added.

The Bashkir alphabet is based on Cyrillic, but has several letters added.

The order is:

а А б Б в В г Г ғ Ғ д Д ҙ Ҙ е Е ё Ё ж Ж з З и И й Й к К ҡ Ҡ л Л м М н Н ң Ң о О ө Ө п П р Р с С ҫ Ҫ т Т у У ү Ү ф Ф х Х һ Һ ц Ц ч Ч ш Ш щ Щ ъ Ъ ы Ы ь Ь э Э ә Ә ю Ю я Я

This is somewhat _comparable_ to Kazakh (kk), but both the characters inventory and the letter order are different.

For a reference, see the attached file, which shows the order of the alphabet in the Academic Dictionary of the Bashkir Language (published in 2011 by the Ufa History, Language, and Literature Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences; edited by Firdaus Khisamitdinova).


  • ‹Ҙ› follows ‹Д› and not ‹З›.
  • ‹Ә› follows ‹Э› (in Kazakh it follows ‹А›).
  • ‹ң›, ‹ҫ›, ‹ъ›, and ‹ь› never appear in the beginning of the word, but can be capital in all-caps text.

This is a request from Bashkir Wikipedia editors to add support for Bashkir collation to MediaWiki software. MediaWiki relies on ICU and CLDR, so I'm making the request here.

Thank you!

  • Status changed from new to accepted
  • Priority changed from assess to minor
  • Phase changed from dsub to rc
  • Milestone changed from UNSCH to 32
  • Owner changed from anybody to markus
  • Type changed from unknown to data

Since this is a "seed" locale, priority is low.... Markus please handle if time allows.
