Address missing Core data: change coverage, add collation

Reported by: mark Owned by: srl
Component: infrastructure Data Locale:
Phase: dsub Review:
Weeks: Data Xpath:


The following CLDR Target=Modern locales are missing collation data. Note: It may be that the UCA is sufficient, that needs investigation.

  • Basque
  • Sindhi
  • Cantonese
  • Somali
  • Javanese (also missing casing)

CLDR Target levels:

The following locales look like candidates for a higher CLDR Target level.


  • chr Cherokee: should add ordinals*, romanization*
  • gd Scottish Gaelic: needs collation


  • ast Asturian: needs collation, ordinals*
  • ccp Chakma: needs plurals, collation, ordinals*, romanization*. Note: the lack of plurals means that they may need to be fleshed out and the coverage reevaluated.
  • yue_Hans Cantonese (Simplified): needs collation.
  • nn Norwegian Nynorsk: needs ordinals* (may be same rules as nb)
  • br Breton: needs collation, ordinals*

I am Bivuti Chakma. I am preparing a document for romanization and ordinals for ccp Chakma. Plurals and collation will be preparing next. For your kind information. Probably it may some time.

Yes... But... What is the intent with the "ordinals" rules? The documentation I find in http://cldr.unicode.org/index/cldr-spec/minimaldata is:

Ordinal rules [supplemental/ordinals.xml]
For more information, see cldr-spec/plural-rules.

And cldr-spec/plural-rules only speaks of cardinals.

Is the intent similar to that for cardinals, i.e., "any grammatical change in noun following an ordinal number w.r.t. the numeric value"? If so, is there any language at all that does that? I don't know of any; indeed it would not be logical to have such a grammatical change (granted, natural languages aren't always logical).

Or is the intent completely different from that for cardinals? Like "any change in suffix when writing ordinals with digits and a suffix w.r.t. the numeric value"? The data seems to point at that.

  • Owner changed from anybody to srl
  • Component changed from other to infrastructure
  • Summary changed from Address missing Core data. to Address missing Core data: change coverage, add collation

The goal is the same:
... any change a sentence when when writing ordinals with digits... (need not be suffix, etc)

"the 1st week"
"the 22nd week"
"the 3rd week"
"the 99th week"
