Balochi: Merge {bgp, bgn, bcc} into bal?

Reported by: sascha Owned by: shervin
Component: other Data Locale: bgp, bgn, bcc, bal
Phase: dsub Review:
Weeks: Data Xpath:


Received from Ibrahim Baloch <ibaloch@…> over e-mail:

CLDR has 3 projects in the Balochi language: Eastern Balochi (bgp, cldrbug:8555), Western Balochi (bgn, cldrbug:8275) and Southern Balochi (bcc, cldrbug:7553). These are just dialects of the Balochi language, and not really different languages — all are members of the Balochi macrolanguage (bal) but in 3 scripts. Is it possible to merge (bgp,bgn,bcc) into bal, and add bal into CLDR?

[I’m just summarizing the mail thread into this ticket but don’t have context myself]

Hello my name is Ibrahim khashrowdi and with nickname (Ibrahim Baloch), I live in Moscow Russia and my native language is Baluchi and I know Russian, English, Persian, Pashto languages.

Baluchi (بلوچى)
Baluchi is a Northwestern Iranian language spoken by about seven million people. Most Baluchi speakers live in Pakistan, Iran, Afghanistan, but there as also speakers in India, the Arab Gulf States, Turkmenistan and East Africa.

Baluchi first started to be written during the 19th century. At first it was written with the Latin alphabet using a spelling system devised by British linguists. After Pakistan gained independence in 1947, Baloch scholars adopted the Perso-Arabic script to write their language. Baluchi is written with a version of the Arabic script based on Pashto in Afghanistan.

Baluchi, which is also known as Balochi Baloci or Baluci, has three main dialects: Eastern, Western and Southern, the main dialect used in Baluchi literature.
